You always wonder why all the Muslims does not admit, even if the suspected person who confessed to authorities, as he is a Muslim and caught red-handed spreading terror. Its sometimes looks like Muslims are always blaming others but not themselves.
The Reason behind it.
Becoming an apparent Muslim or look like a Muslim is not a difficult job, just grow your beard, trim your mustache, wear round cap and some Muslim cloths like Arab’s, and if you are making an Anti-Islamic video just shout out loud “Allah u Akbar” and social media will label you as a Muslim terrorist.
Even after all blame game, Muslims never get nervous about being bullied as terrorists.
This is because, Even in the early times of Islam, in the presence of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) many non-believers just disguised themselves as a Muslims, in order to find weak points in Muslims. they did not participate with the companions of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H), in any activity for the sake the Islam, as well as to fight in the battle against non-believers who attacks and trying to hurt Prophet (P.B.U.H). The disguised person is called a “Munafiq” in Islam and only Prophet (P.B.U.H) knows, who is a Muslim or not by heart in that time.
Time passes out and these Munafiqs increases over time and paint a picture of Islam as extremism and not as its true version. As the media spreads out, many new faces of self-made Muslim’s preacher appears and each new preacher describes his own doctrine and people with the passage of time starting to follow their doctrines but not Islam.
This is the reason behind, why many Muslim communities appear to hate each other, as they think they are following the true essence of Islam, which they probably not.
In the 21st century, these misconceptions and stereotypical information regarding Islam spread like a plaque and all people on the other side, accept it, as it is without any doubt. 9/11 incident serves as a base for showing Muslims as terrorists. However, after some years it is publicly leaked, that 9/11 was an inside job. For blaming Muslims?
Today many Jihadis agencies show themselves as Muslims. However, Muslims does not own them, they actually serve others by being Muslims and their main targets are Muslims.
Muslims all over the world the most innocents, each year millions of Muslims killed, murdered, Muslim women got raped in Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Palestine, Lebonan, Syria, Kashmir etc., but the world always finds a Muslim terrorist.
As Per US government’s National Counter-Terrorism Center (NCTC), which said: “In cases where the religious affiliation of terrorism casualties could be determined, Muslims suffered between 82 and 97% of terrorism-related fatalities over the past five years.”
As per Global Terrorism Database.
And the interesting thing is, even after too much killing, spreading hate, stereotypical content against Islam and many other activities just to limit the Islam from spreading, not actually limiting the Islam but helps in nourishing it.
As per Pew Research Center:
The conclusion is Islam is not the Religion which is spreading by a sword, it attracts the curious minds of believers of other faiths, to check why Islam is spreading and why people once become Muslim, does not allow to hear anything bad for Islam. This is because they chose to accept it as they found their peace of mind.
Along with many other goods things in Islam, one thing which is most attracted to members of other faiths is: Islam promotes gender equality and ethnicity, as many people face racism in their daily lives, Islam protects them all and give rights to all of them. Which you can see at the Pilgrimage in the Islamic month of Zil-Hajj at Macca each year, where millions of Muslims males and females came together from all over the world, above their ethnic background and language for the sole purpose of Worshiping the Almighty.
You can imagine how this huge event is managed each year, each and every single participant follows the guideline and no one even thinks, to interrupt the Hajj event, unless from outside.
This is what the real Islam is: Gender and Ethnic Equality, Helping others by giving charities/donations, spreading peace and making things right.
Hope this might helps in answering your question.
