When a terrorist commits a crime against humanity, people tends not to seek for answers from an aggressor but from the whole Muslim community. This is so wrong!
For many years, Christians and Muslims is in Kenya have shared a lot in terms of livelihood and commitments towards national peace. But it so happens that now that al-shabaab terrorists have been targeting Kenyans, there are those who think negatively about the whole Muslim community…
Who hasn’t been affected by terrorism in Kenya?
By now, there is fear that some local people are assisting terrorists in Kenya. Amazingly, some people are quick to point a finger at Muslims because they believe that non-Muslims will not be willing to do this. However, in 2008 just after the bombing of an American Embassy in Nairobi CBD, notorious criminals were mentioned as to have engineered the whole process until the last-minute.
Another incident of terror that some local criminals were mentioned was on Westgate Shopping Mall, where the police report said that some most wanted persons helped al-shabaab terrorists in currying out that heinous crime.
In Short, terrorists are just criminals elements in the society that masquerade like religious men and women but if you take out religion from them, then you will only see a notorious criminal who doe not value life or humanity.
In countries where Muslims are the majority, terrorism activities do happen. This informs us that the people who are playing with our mind should not be called Muslims… How could you kill your brother or sister and claim that the same religious book that they practice drove them to do exactly that?
Victimization of Muslims because of terrorism activities worldwide is not the right way in fighting the war against terror.
