ISIS is NISIS
03 December, 2015
Do we realiase that the entire world, the world media and we the Muslims all over the world are unwittingly and inadvertently tarnishing the good image of Islam by referring to the Daesh - the extremists and butchers of Syria and Iraq - as members of ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) or ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and Levant). These radically sick murderers cannot be part of any Islamic state – as a matter of fact they cannot be Muslims either. They should, therefore, be called members of NISIS (Non Islamic State of Iraq & Syria).
A worldwide campaign or rather anti-campaign to rename ISIS as NISIS should be promoted and shared by the moderates of all religions and ordinary Muslims and their friends all over the world to show our rejection, denial and refusal of the extremist methodology of these radically sick people hiding behind Islam, and equally to show solidarity with all the innocent victims of their horrendous criminal attacks and atrocities anywhere throughout the globe.
The respected Media all over the world is requested to please STOP referring to them as ISIS. From today lets all call them “NISIS" - Non-Islamic State of Iraq & Syria.
Every time someone refers to them as ISIS or ISIL, the word “Islam” automatically pops out in the subconscious mind. And its repetition – however imperceptible it might be – does leave an indelible mark and impression on one’s mind. Over a period it gets embossed there and the good name of Islam – the religion of peace – is gradually and unknowingly tarnished beyond repair. So from here onwards it is the NISIS and not the ISIS. Please DO spread the word around. Thanks.
