Religion and Terrorism

in Islam

Religion means A strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny.
Terrorism means the calculated use of violence (or the threat of violence) against civilians in order to attain personal goals at whatever basis they may be.

All Religions teach us how to live a disciplined life of peace. Every Religion; Islam, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Jewish and any other will teach us to live a life of peace and perfect harmony. Tell me if I am wrong. Many people can have many mind sets towards different aspects of life. Views contradict. But we can still live together with peace while keeping our view about some particular thing and respecting views of other people.

The thing that’s wrong is to blame some religion or label some religion with strong acts. i.e. Terrorism.
No religion will guide you to the ways of terrorism, extremism or whatever bad things.
To label any Religion or its followers with the term terrorism or terrorist is very mean thing to do.

Terrorists have no religion. They believe in nothing but hate and revenge. Religions teach to forgive, to let it go for good and to be patient. Terrorists or extremists can be from any religion or race or they may say they belong to some but it is not the fact. Today I see it a fashion to label a Muslim with term terrorist. In my opinion terrorists have no religion and they believe in nothing which lead to desperation and extreme acts due to their inability to differentiate evil and good deeds and they can be from any race and any religion.

Am I wrong? What do you think? If you do, why do you call Muslim a terrorist?
