Terrorism, not jihad

It has now became a routine for us to hear about the deadly attacks taking place in one place or the other in the name of Islam. What these terrorists achieve by indulging in such gory massacres of the innocent people is intriguing. If they think by such acts they are going to enter jannah, then they are absolutely wrong. If they think they are waging Jihaad then their thinking is twisted. Jihad is a vast concept. If we go deeper we will realize that this is not jihaad, this is something radical terrorism. By indulging in bloodshed , by attacking monuments, sacred places and brutal incidents run contrary to the noble Islamic teachings. Likewise recent attacks in Paris  brought tears to my eyes by seeing how Islam propounded by my beloved Prophet, who was Messenger of Mercy is being distorted by these perverts.

The same people who wrought mayhem to Paris, massacred some 80 Muslims, men women and children in a suburb of Lebanese capital Beirut a day earlier.

If there is any definition of terrorism , this is it. How on earth will they justify killing innocent women and children if their purported opponent USA or for that matter France does the same. After all America or France don’t claim to fight a Jihad as these terrorists do.
