Jihad is to fight evil. those who indulge in attacks like samjhauta express , mumbai blasts , mecca masjid blast , malegaon , iraq war ,burma genocide , sri lanka genocide etc or any such wrong doings do not come under real jihad.?
Jihad is a solemn cause. Jihad is sacrifice and if need be to sacrifice ones life to save the life of other(s) . To take life of others - by killing innocent people by planting bombs or indulgence in other criminal heinous acts - in the garb of jihad is terrorism and the elements indulging in such acts are terrorists and not jihadis. It is no jihad . No religion including Muslim/ islam or Hinduism supports. Infact some misguided youthsare exploited by these so called muslim jihadis (actually terrorists) with tacit support of our neighbouring country i.e. pakistan . They play with fire and live with fear of losing their life any day.

Real jihad? So there are FAKE Jihad too? two varieties of Jihad?
People setting out to fight evil??? who defines WHAT IS EVIL? A group of people setting out to fight and kill against what they declare as evil.....is better called HOOLIGANS.
In civilized societies the government has its means to deal with CRIME. They dont need GOONS equipped with bombs and rocket launchers to settle issues!
