Well, basically this title is what I want to discuss in terms of terrorism and extremism. I think that pre-911, no one actually thought much on this religion, but after 911, I'm starting to see reports that went along the line of ppl being Islamphobs not to mention that there might be ppl out there who would think of Islam upon hearing the word terrorism Also, there are ppl in this world who critcized the religion that it abhors women's rights on the basis of what they seen in hardliner countries like Iran. So the big question: What are your thoughts on Islam in this aspect? For me, I believe that the religion is basically a victim of extremism. I dunno much abt the Quran, but I truly think that any legitimate religion in this world won't have any basis in starting something along the line of jihad. (read: senseless war and killings). But I won't say that the extremist are using their religion as an excuse either. I'd prefer to see them along the light of misinterpreting the Quran. Either that or for terrorists, they are more or less disillusioned with the influence of the Western world and this in itself forced them along the path of religion extremism. Okay I've put up a bit on my views here. I'll be looking forward to see what you guys will say. And pls keep the debate civil. I don't want Skyanide going ballistic just because there are some retarded ppl in this world who dunno the term being civilized.
