Majority of Muslims are critical of ISIS, Al-Qaeda

Mushawarat must be lauded for its firm stand on Al-Qaeda’s proposed presence on Indian soil involving Muslims. This is a banned militant outfit that has besmirched the name and image of Islam by its extremely un-Islamic activities. The predominantly Hindu India is under the erroneous impression that all Indian Muslims are in favour of ISIS, Al-Qaeda-like dubious Muslim organizations’ nefarious and sanguinary designs, aimed at destabilising societies, nations and world-peace. This majoritarian belief is mistaken. Not just Mushawarat, but all sane Muslims anywhere on earth are openly critical of ISIS, Boko Haram, Al-Qaeda et al. Islam condemns violence and bloodshed like all other existing faiths.
