Boko Haram causing infamy to Islam and Muslims: Maulana Asrarul Haq

New Delhi: Since the beginning of the 21st century, an international Zionist conspiracy is trying to defame Muslims by claiming that Islam teaches terrorism, said Maulana Asrarul Haq Qasmi, M. P. from Kishanganj and president of the All India Taaleemi wa-Milli Foundation.

He said Boko Haram too seems to be a part of this conspiracy. He said anti-Muslim forces always tried to defame Islam and this is being done more actively since the advent of this century.

Maulana Qasmi said, even the enemies of Islam know that there is no room in Islam for terrorism and violence. Islam’s holy book says that unjust murder of one person is tantamount to murdering the whole humanity. Islam forbids injustice to one and all.

He said these days news is coming from Nigeria where an extremist organisation, Boko Haram, is committing anti-Islamic activities which are defaming Islam all over the world. According to media, their latest crime is to kidnap over 200 school girls and they are talking of selling them or marrying them off forcibly. The same organisation earlier attacked a rural area and killed around 300 innocent people including children, women and elderly. Last year this organisation had attacked a mall where it identified and spared Muslims but took non-Muslims hostage who were later rescued after government intervention.

Maulana Qasmi said these misdeeds are against the teachings of Islam. If an organisation is established in the name of Islam, it should adhere to the teachings of Islam. He said Boko Haram activities, which came to light since the last year, cannot be described as Islamic. He called upon the Muslim world to openly condemn the activities of such organisations and to  expose the conspiracies of the anti-Islamic forces.

Maulana Qasmi called for the dissemination of the message of Islam to all corners of the world and to make it clear that Islam and terrorism are two different things and any organisation committing such crimes in the name of Islam cannot be Islamic. Muslims should beware of such organisations which may secretly be supported by anti-Islamic forces.
