Q.

Will we ever realize the fact that we are facing an unprecedented threat from Islamic radical Jehadis ??

It is not about inequality (lot of prominent muslims are at top of Indian society), it is not about poverty (many jehadis are doc & engineers) (one left a Rs.19 lakhs IT job to join jehad), it is not about avenging Gujarat (jehad is going on in Pakistan also, also in Indonesia, Afgan, China, Russia, USA, Spain, UK).

Isn't Jehad (fight against non-muslims) an ideological war for establishment of rule of Islam (sharia). Are we too complacent?? Isnt that dangerous for our children??

Its mis interpretation on jihad.Whoever goes for it is not a real muslim.Jihad does not mean "holy war." This has to be one of the most damaging, most persistent myths about Islam. Jihad, (which comes from the Arabic root word jahada, meaning "to toil, to exert oneself, to strive for a better way of life") is correctly translated as "struggle" or "endeavour," and can easily apply to such things as a student working to earn a medical degree or a group of people raising money to build a mosque. It can apply to the struggle to control one's temper, or to learn to read and writeIt encompasses the idea of struggling or fighting for good or against evil, but that does not necessarily mean with violence, and it certainly does not mean that any crackpot claiming to be Muslim and waving a Qur'an around can decide who is good and who is evil, and start killing people.

No. You are in total misconception. You yourself have mentioned all reasons behind it which point out that these radicals who call their personal or organizational revenge or vendetta, Jihad in the name of Islam are basically beyond the comprehension of teachings of Islam. Islam, for that matter, no religion says that you should involve in a fight with non believers and knock them down to death. No. Jihad in its original sense means internal war or purification of your own self from the evil inside you. But when a fight befalls on you, if you fight it back to protect yourself/your community then the meaning takes wrong notions as one can't say for sure if it is done against oppression or done to take revenge on something. Unfortunately today people are more convinced or more easily accept if some one does a bomb blasting and says he has done as per sharia and quotes few verses from Quran. This is the fault of people who are ready to easily believe the bad things done by some one in the ...more

Extract from http://news.webindia123.com/news/articles/India/20060718/394446.h tml

He [the Shahi Imam Syed Ahmed Bukhari of Delhi's grand old Jama Masjid] hit out at the Congress and the Samajwadi Party, saying these "so-called secular parties" were to blame for all the ills afflicting Muslims today.

"When Muslims get targeted under these so called secular parties, it is time we teach them a lesson. It is time Shias, Sunnis, Ansaris, Saifis, Barelvis, Qureshis and all else stand up as one -- as Muslims -- and snatch back our collective rights and dignity," the Imam said, asking the community to stand up to the political challenge.

"We were rulers here for 800 years. Inshaallah, we shall return to power here once again", he said to loud approval by the nearly 200 assembled men.

Yes it is. You are absolutely right. Though no religion teaches this but vested elements preach the wrong for their own sinter desires and fanaticism. The Government must rise above narrow caste based politics,shun wolf calls of communalism and much hyped "secularism",stop divide and rule, stop exploiting for political gains,stop dirty vote bank politics and speak humane,stand for values & ethics ,discipline and national character. Our leaders ought to be of exemplary excellence. Serious danger is emerging and the world needs to address this problem sincerely and firmly. It is also unfortunate that our Government wakes up and compensates the dead far more promptly than save all those innumerable innocent lives lost due to terrorism. Radical changes in laws and serious cognizane of the problem, stern steps,no stooping down to mob-o-cracy are some possibilities. Stop giving cakes & biryani ,pick up from the iron hands of Sardar Patel and deal once forever. Punjab is an example of will & ...more

Just remember one thing....teeth come last in the body and go or fall first but tongue comes the first in the body and remained till last. The simple reason for this is that teeth are rigid and tongue is flexible. Anything rigid will fall, sooner or later....Jehadis are rigid and wont survive...wait n watch
