Mangalore: Do Not Identify Terrorism with Religion: Khader

Mangalore, Jan 4: U T Khader, MLA, has said that there is a difference between suspects and criminals and the suspects should not be harassed by prolonged investigation. However, if the crime is proved and if the kind of crime warrants, the culprit can be sentenced to death. The increasing harassment of innocent Muslim-suspects is a cause for concern, he said.

He was speaking at a public conference against terrorism held at Nehru Maidan here on Saturday. It was organised by Markazu Saquafathi Sunniyya, Calicut, in association with Sayyed Madani Darga Committee of Ullal.



Former Minister C M Ibrahim said that the media should avoid associating terrorists with their religion. “Just name them as terrorists,” he said.

Recalling the contributions of Muslim kings such as Tippu Sultan to country’s freedom struggle, Ibrahim said that Muslims had always loved this country. The war in Kashmir was not a war of the Muslims. The need for organising this conference in Mangalore was intense because there was a spate of communal violence here in recent times, he said.

President of Muslim Central Committee of Udupi and Dakshina Kannada districts K S Mohammed Masood said that there was no correlation between terror attacks and religion.

Citing the recent attacks in Palestine and Iraq, he asked: “If Islam is associated with terrorism why were the innocent Pakistanis killed in Pakistan? Caps and beards are no symbols of a terrorist.”

The conference, inaugurated by Taajul Ulma Assayyeed Abdrurrehman Al Bukhari, was presided over by president of Sayyed Madani Darga Committee U K Monu Kanachur. Monthly magazine, “Hoodota” was re-launched at the conference and three compact discs of songs and lectures on religion and violence were released.

    I acknowledge that Islam is a good religion and agree with former Minister C M Ibrahim. Unfortunately it has been misinterprted . India is secular and muslims have quotas starting with education, jobs and representation in the government like NO other country in the world.

    It was a  good function and the crowd was the main attraction. This type of function should be conducted  periodically so that the ill-opinion about Islam religion can be eliminated  from the minds of the people.

    Globally Muslims are under intimidation. International media controlled by the super powers (?) on foot to tag the Muslim community as extremist!! Islam never teaches to offend anyone!! QURAN says, whoever kills a person …it is as though he has killed all mankind.” Thanks for organizing such a consciousness program! If we are not spreading awareness then who will?

    Thanks Daijiworld for the coverage. Usually media people don’t want to publish any influential matter which is in favor of Muslims. I have seen Daiji has enough room for all communities. That’s the beauty of Daiji!

    This is not the voice of the people gathered here. This is the voice & slogan of the whole genuine Muslims. Muslims are peace loving people. We are all the followers of Prophet Muhammed (S.A) He teached us to love our neighbours doesn't matter their religions. Terrorists are Terrorists whatever their religion.

    Thanks Daijiworld for the coverage. Usually media people don’t want to publish any influential matter which is in favor of Muslims. I have seen Daiji has enough room for all communities. That’s the beauty of Daiji!

    However, recently many young people were arrested in Mukkuchery Ullal on Suspected Terror event. Where are those youngsters yet? Are they still under Police custody and having crucial torture from the police personnel? Did any one try to find the truth and help the innocents to come out from the cells? Why the Law and Order is biased and targeting particular community without any proper evidence? Who is going to answer all these questions?

    Can Janab CM Ibrahim or Janab Masood or Janab UT Khader help the suspected innocents to have a common life as we do? Who will wipe the tears of these families?! We need the result along with such an awareness function. Our leaders needs to be practical in such cases and must fight for the JUSTICE.

    Injustice and oppression leads to repercussion and reactions beyond acceptable norms.Hypocracy and double standard by the Govt in handling the communal riots will lead to more violence.There is no incident in the recent history as ghastly as Gujrat communal violence where the innocent muslim women were raped and no one is punished so far for those brutal crimes.Media and politician should play the just and balanced role in fighting the communal elements and terrorism to make India a strong country.
