All our friends who are Muslims are some of the nicest people we know. These are some of the most caring and down-to-earth people. They set examples in the community and we look forward to interacting with them. The recent appalling killings in France which yet again traces the killers back to the community. No one can deny acts of terrorism has a distinct, dominant profile among the perpetrators. The treatment of the Pakistani young girl and the massacre of 130+ in the country which consisted mainly of children are two of the latest examples. With all this, we still don’t see the Muslim community leaders having an agenda of eradicating the issue within the community. If they have, the results are less than unsatisfactory. To win back the confidence of the world’s public in general the community should gather all forces from governments to local leaders voicing their support against terrorism and implementing concrete steps and displaying concrete proof of progress. The rise of Islam’s link to terrorism in the past two decades reminds one of the great prophet Michel Nostradamus’s predictions of the religion being rooted out. Many question his predictions citing research. However the turn of events in the past two decades should provide a lot of ground to see concerted reprisals against the religion’s extremists. Either the extremism will be wiped out from within or from outside – time will tell.
