When I opened the Twitter at the evening, I looked at the trending news and found #StopZakirNayik. Though the monsoon has come but the heat wave is still on in some parts of India. Which is reflected well in the Tweets.
Finally we have got something new to talk against Islam. It was so needed. Muslims should go to Pakistan, eat vegetables and worship the idols we want were becoming boring. BJP has also become a bit reserved. Not giving much hate speeches. JNU and the love for Afzal Guru has become back dated. Then the Bangladesh blast happened. In a most brutal way the terrorists have killed the civilians.
If it is the way of gaining faith for Islam then I think that the faith will come on the fact that all the Muslims of the world are dead. But anyways, India was in red alert after this attack and then the news broke that terrorists were a follower of Nayik. India got a new topic, that the first thing we should do is not to look at the draught but to stop him. The easiest way to control a person and thoughts. Well let us suppose he preaches hatred, now if you stop him what will happen? The hatred he has already preached where will that go? The world has seen many stopping, killing, fatwas. Writes have left countries, free thinkers are dead. So Nayak can be our fight back statement.
Now, we have to decide that what is our target? Stop terrorism or stop a preacher. A preacher is always biased. Have you ever seen an unbiased religious preacher in your time? Every preacher talks about the religion he or she believes. If he is harmful then Hindu preachers are also harmful. Just because terrorists have followed him then in India he should be banned. The terrorists have a believe on Quran too. Then why don’t you ban the circulation of Quran in India?
I don’t think that Nayik is the problem of threat. He speaks something which are very propagandist in nature but if we forcefully stop him and if he id into spreading violence then he will do that in some other way. This has no end.
We have to understand that targeting individuals like this will not solve the problem which we want to deal. It will just divert the mind. Terrorists don’t follow thoughts they follow the orders.
