Spread of love and peace more important than hatred
People from all walks of life irrespective of their society, culture, religion and nation are becoming more and more irresponsible towards the society they are living in. We are not ready to accommodate others and their feelings, thoughts. This is leading us to destruction and not to sustaining.

All religions in the world taught us about love and compassion then why we are not ready to accept the essence of religions and ready to fight in the name of religions. Islam is truly a religion of tolerance rather being religion of oppression. A few people tried to prove me wrong in my previous article "Respect for other religions in Islam".

Believe me or not most of Muslims are becoming alienated from mainstream just because of provocative remarks. There are few like us who are trying to spread the truth. Governments are also not doing any good in this regard. Very recently, Baba Ramdev created a controversy by saying he was ready to chop off hundreds of heads of people, if only law would permit it.

Ms. Shobha De, a renowned personality clearly asked Prime Minister of the country to speak up and initiate a dialogue rather continuing monologue in her latest article in Times of India dated 10.04.2016. This utterance of Baba Ramdev is clearly against the law of land because he is not only spreading hatred on communal ground but inciting people to take law in their own hands. Till now no action has been taken against Baba by any authority.

Baba Ramdev is one of the Gurus of Hindu religion, if I go by the same dictum of so called intellectuals who used to call Islam is a religion of terror then same thing will get applied for Hinduism too. But that is not the case. We, most of Muslims don't have such notion about any other religion. There are good Gurus in Hinduism like Swami Agniveshji, Acharya Pramod Kishnanji who are trying to spread the message of love and peace just like Sufi saints and other Maulvis doing in Muslim community.

Unfortunate thing is that media don't want to cover these important people's work of peace and love. It is more interested in showcasing hatred and violence. How many of you have really heard the sermons of Maulana Kalbe Sadiq and Maulana Firangi Mahali of Lucknow. Both of them are trying hard to do good work by spreading real knowledge of Islam among Muslims and creating awareness to get educated so that they don't get trapped in vicious environment of hatred.

 World can be peaceful only if all of us want it that way. Just by saying we are peaceful people and doing just opposite, is not going to help anything. We really have to be tolerant toward others feelings and should not do things which may hurt others.

ISIS and al Qaeda are not even Muslims and leading Muslim seminaries across the world denounced their actions. Muslims are those who really follow teachings of Quran and Prophet. None of them is saying to kill innocent people whereas ISIS and such organizations are involved in such heinous crimes, which are not part of Islamic teachings. 

Therefore, stop demonizing Islam as a religion and spread love and peace instead of spreading hatred. We need a lovely and peaceful world and not a ruined one. Extremism of all kinds are bad and one wrong can never make other wrong right.
