Eye on extremism: Violent protests are un-Islamic


…[T]he Quran states repeatedly “Bear patiently what they say” and also “And when thou seest those who engage in vain discourse concerning Our Signs, then turn thou away from them until they engage in a discourse other than that.”

One may wonder what role God plays in the eyes of those proportionally few extremists among the Christians as well as the Muslims if everyone considers himself both judge and executioner and feels impelled to predate the Day of Judgment. It is those very violent extremists, associating themselves with the religion of Islam, who through their actions insult their prophet most. Because the Quran does not imply any worldly punishment for blasphemy, let alone condone vigilantism. Quite the contrary, the Quran states repeatedly “Bear patiently what they say” and also “And when thou seest those who engage in vain discourse concerning Our Signs, then turn thou away from them until they engage in a discourse other than that.”

Is there any Muslim who can rebut this teaching of the Quran? Is it illusory to expect from the peace-loving majority of the adherents of all denominations to join hands and thwart the dividing efforts of the few agitators and to supersede all the instigators from the media focus?
