If we turn to the previous pages of history, we can memorize that the Muslim world has enriched us with so many people who were remarkable and commendable in their own field. Let us remember some of the names whom we feel like idols.

Eminent Personalities:

Malala Yousafzai, Asif Ali Zardari, Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan, Abdul Sattar Edhi, Imran Khan, Wasim Akram, etc. (Though Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif is presently patronizing terrorism.)


Allama Iqbal, Meer Taqi Meer, Mirza Ghalib, Akbar Allahabadi, Momin Khan Momin, Khawaja Meer Dard, Haider Ali Aatish, Daag Dehlvi, Bahadur Shah Zafar, Ameer Minai etc.


Bade Ghulam Ali Khan , Noor Jehan, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Mehdi Hassan Khan (Shahanshah-e-Ghazal), Ghulam Ali, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Atif Aslam, Ali Zafar, Adnan Sami, Shafqat Amanat Ali, Abida Parveen, Salamat Ali Khan etc.

The situation has now changed from very past history. This era of civilization is much less disturbed with terrorism which has decreased the pace of development in specific communities.

Islamist terror is not brought about by destitution or abuse. It is brought about by images. It is brought on by thoughts inside the executioners’ heads and nothing more. What may be the reason like 17-year-old children get an AK-47 instead of attempting to begin a business?

Islamist terrorism is not caused by poverty. It is not caused by any rational grievance or logical complaint. It is caused by a sick fantasy ideology flourishing in a corrupt political world of dictatorships.

New York Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad demonstrates that neediness does not bring about terror. Maybe, Islamism causes terror. This young fellow was born in Pakistan to an affluent family, the child of an Air Vice Marshal in the Pakistan Air Force. He had the unfathomable fortunes to be acknowledged into the US to study and after that work. He got a B.A. in software engineering and designing at the University of Bridgeport, Connecticut. He got an MBA from the University of Bridgeport. He acquired a position as a financial analyst in Connecticut, and lived in rural America with “freedom and prosperity”. He reacted in May 2010 by attempting to kill American men, ladies, and kids rampantly, and now confronts many years of hardship in American prisons. Only Islamism can clarify such ‘ingratitude’, as well as such ‘self-destruction’. In this way, Islamist terrorism is changing the psychology of human beings into an inhuman mentality.

Obviously, not everybody who peruses the Quran turns into a terrorist overnight. There are a few factors that must be available and the Quran is one of them. At least the above incident has indicated that way.

The Quran contains no less than 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the purpose of Islamic principle. Some are very realistic, with charges to slash off heads and fingers and slaughter unbelievers wherever they might be covering up. Muslims who do not join the battle is called “hypocrites” and cautioned that Allah will send them to Hell in the event that they do not join the butcher.

One element is xenophobia or the doubt of the non-Muslims. Numerous Islamic nations effectively and efficiently advance the scorn of the Jews, America, and the West all in all. You should consider yourself to be the casualty and the non-Muslims as the oppressors keeping in mind the end goal to abhor them enough to murder them. An extraordinary number of Muslims, maybe the greater part, are at this stage. Not all these Muslims are going to wind up terrorists, yet awesome numbers are persuaded that America and especially the Jews are in charge of everything that is not right in their lives. One can see on the internet their most loved line of “safeguard of Islam” is to be faulted the Jews and America.

Some points are given here from the Quran which may have some indication of the learning point of terrorism.

Quran (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”

Quran (4:76) – “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…”

Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them” – No reasonable person would interpret this to mean a spiritual struggle.

Ali Sina (pen name) is an Iranian Canadian activist and a strong critic of Islam who portrays himself as an ex-Muslim. He is the creator of Faith Freedom International, which he portrays as a grassroots development of ex-Muslims.

He said, “One more factor that I did not mention but is very important is the lack of self-esteem and the prevalent feeling of worthlessness among Muslims, and Islam’s pedagogic fiasco in rearing confident, positive and successful humans. Terrorists are losers who seek their glory in martyrdom. That too is the direct consequence of the failure of Islamic paradigm”.

There may be some factors by which the young talented people of Muslim communities turn into Islamist terrorism. Either their brains are forcefully motivated or their religion propels them to the negative ideology which is another subject of research. But, it is the reality that we are facing the great loss of hundreds and thousands of promising talent every year from the Muslim community who joins terrorist groups.
