This is not Islam
08 October, 2013
The TTP spokesman has declared that the attack on the Peshawar church was in accordance with Shariah. One fails to understand what self-created brand of Islam the TTP is following. Islam is a religion of peace and exhorts upon the protection of all humans. The Holy Quran clearly states that he who kills a human kills all of humanity and one who saves one, saves humanity.
Constitutionally, non-Muslims in this country are equal citizens and it is incumbent upon the government to protect their life and property. I request ulemas and muftis to give the correct picture of Islam to the world in this regard. The TTP, through its words and actions, is presenting a totally distorted picture of this religion of peace to the world.
