Refuge behind the Religion-4
It is the minority that has hijacked Islam but the silent majority just also don’t condemn it because either they are reluctant to do so because they are confused since the minority also supposedly confess to follow the same religion or the majority in a secret way accept it since they don’t have the time or the inclination or desire to research the issues that confront Islam. And I believe it is both since they are part of the same religion that they so passionately follow as being peaceful. All religions are peaceful if you read different scriptures, no religion condone violence against other religions if you go deeper into the meaning of them. It is the followers who in order to serve their own personal purpose bend it to their own needs and then propagate that version so much that the mainstream folks who don’t want to read or understand the scripture blindly follow it and they you have this kind of violence. These are the people who take refuge behind the religion to justify their actions since they cannot base their actions on anything else. And these are the most dangerous ones and they are covertly supported by people in the government and other agencies so that they can carry out their agenda with the blessing of people in authority. And the space for counter active narration is becoming smaller and smaller or even nonexistent because the Muslims are unable to come to a final conclusion on religious issues since everybody wants to be a leader and they don’t want to accept the fact that they can also be wrong and the opposition can have a valid or alternative and equally powerful point of view.
