Bewildered? Yes let it be clarified, Terrorists are not Muslims. Terrorism has no religion. It does not have any identity. It does not belong to any land. It is only terrorism.

If looking for the literal meaning; it means a calculated violence against a civilization to achieve set goals of a political or republican or communal group. Anything which violates a law against the civil society comes in the category of terrorism. Yet in today’s scenario, it is vast than the described action.

The first thing that a child learns from the environment is the sound of a bomb blast. This is not something unknown or strange to him. A child knows well what a terrorist does but why? It may not be understood by him.

Terrorism started when one son of Adam murdered his brother to get his goals. It was the first act of terrorism which took place on earth and thus paved its way with the coming time. Yet the nature of terrorism was different; the former was for the pleasure of self while today’s terrorism has complex motives. It is not against the individuals yet against the countries, societies, religions and sets of norms which individuals follow as a nation. Internationally it has been reckoned that this is all based on conspiracies made by one for the downfall of other.

I usually wonder how people can associate terrorism with a specific group of people while every group goes to the last extreme for enjoying the downfall of another group or a nation. It was not as worse before 11 September 2001. I do not claim that before 9/11 it was all peace everywhere. Yet let me tell you peers that the ratio of serenity and peace was very high as compared with today.

It seems a very serious conspiracy against the Muslims which led to the ultimate destructions in many countries like Iraq and Afghanistan. It was definitely revealed by the U.S Magazines and Papers that yes it was so. The downfall of World Trade Centre brought the Crown of Muslims under its debris. All innocents being killed in Afghanistan and Iraq had only this crime that they shared their religion with few of them who were guilty. They had to pay more than their lives.

It was one example of conspiracy against one group of community. History is having plethora of them. You must not have forgotten the foreign interference in Dhaka Crisis where numbers of civilians were killed mercilessly because their neighboring country had interest in their ruin. The trust which was lost for one was never established.

This time it was not religious war, rather it was political. Countries fighting for the destruction of human life and survival on earth.

Racism is another factor giving birth to terrorists. Who can forget the red Indians being usurped by the strict and cruel laws imposed on their own land by aliens who invaded and captured them. The prejudice of White against the Blacks and Browns give rise to the inward hatred which springs when is pressed to last extent. Here is a short poem said by a black child which shows his inner expressions;

White Fellow?

You call me colored?

You are White when born,

Blue when Afraid,

Red when in anger,

Yellow when being Sick,

And I?

I was black when born,

Black when die,

Black when cry,

Black when being terrify,

Black when ill,

Black when angry,

And you call me colored?

Such racism movements had brought number of great riots in Africa and adjacent countries.

Targeted land; where the sports teams refuse to come and play, a land where economy is ceased, a country which was famous for its tourism is now barren because it has no security for its own natives. Guess what? Yes I am talking about today’s Pakistan. A land which is banned and tagged as a land of terrorists. A land where after passing a peaceful day, a child wonders why is there no blast today? Is everything alright? A land where foreign elements reside and are secured because the natives are paying for their security. Yes, it is today’s Pakistan which has been entangled in the clouds of religious, political, social conspiracies. Karachi riots are open indicator of the fact that Pakistanis are the most affected people by the terrorism. People are unsafe at their own homes, within the four walls.

It is not because Osama Bin Laden was said to be found here. It is because it was a land which has the strongest geography with the weakest people.

One Osama dies and the governing world announces the birth of another for which you can understand another beginning of riots will start. Do you think if a tribe is invaded, its beings will do nothing in return. But the question is who suffers in all these situations. It is common man like you and me who do not belong to any underworld, any political or any social terrorism group.

The moderation and tolerance are the two factors which are needed to control this non-dimensional and uncontrollable destruction of peace. No religion gives the orders of terrorism. No education gives a call for the killing of innocent souls. No voice of Heavenly Souls asks to play with the peace. This is only the human who is the responsible of all such activities taking place on the planet.

    i am happy to read the article. the reason is that someone must speak against the cruel attitudes on muslims. today we do not speak a word against anti islamic issues just because we do not want to come in the category of extremists.
