Jeevo Jivatsya Jeevanam

I read Mr Vibhav's write-up (The Milli Gazette, 1-15 January 2004) wherein he calls upon us, Muslims, to answer to him why we act upon one single verse of Quran which, according to his misunderstanding, calls upon Muslims to resort to terrorism!

Mr Vibhav should know that there is not a single verse in the Qur'an that teaches terrorism. Keep reading The Milli Gazette regularly and you will be convinced beyond doubt that Islam stands for peace not just in letter but in spirit as well.

I too have a question for Mr Vibhav. Lord Krishna asked Arjuna to go to war, take up arms, against Kauravas. This was fought and won. Were Krishna, Arjuna, Pandvas, Karna and Kauravas terrorists? Were our own freedom fighters terrorists?

As for eating 'halal' animals is concerned, as per your own Dharmashastras (religious books) beef eating is allowed and cow slaughter in a temple as a religious ritual is practised even today in Nepal. Killing is forbidden for some reasons and permitted for some reasons. Do we not kill human beings on our borders believing them to be enemy? Do we not kill germs of disease by taking medicine? Do we not kill germs and purify water? Even air that way. Do we not kill mosquitoes? Do we not kill mad dogs when they become dangerous for our life? Do we not kill plants and vegetables so that we eat and remain alive?

Anyone who kills innocent human beings is a sinner, whatever his religion. Killing for food is no sin if done properly, humanely, to the extent required. Your own holy book says "Jeevo Jivatsya Jeevanam" (A life is sacrificed to sustain another life).
