Islam does not permit terrorism at any costUttar Pradesh, November 21, 2011: The incident of Karbala was significant as it established that terrorism has no place in Islam. Imam Hussain sacrificed his life but conveyed the message that Islam cannot tolerate terror activities. Eminent speakers shared these sentiments during the Hussain Day celebrations organised by Urdu Media Guild and Awadhnama at IMA Hall on Sunday. The function was graced by governor of Jharkhand, Syed Mohd Ahmed, former Indian wicket keeper Syed Kirmani, former minister Arif Mohd Khan, Padamshree Dr Mansoor Hasan, Dr. Jagannath Tripathi of Awadh University, Faizabad, former CDRI scientist MIH Farooqui and Vice-President, All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB), Maulana Kalbe Sadiq and President, All India Shia Personal Law Board (AISPLB), Maulana Mirza Mohd Athar.

“Today Islam is regarded as a religion of terrorism. All terror activities are linked to it but if we look into the ideals and teachings of Islam, there is no place of terrorism. A true picture of Islam has not been projected before the world. Things can be clear if we view the religion in perspective of Karbala incident where Imam Hussain laid down his life for principles and did not bow before the tyrant,” said Kirmani. In his address, Maulana Athar stated that suicide bombings cannot be justified in Islam. “Killing oneself along with others by detonating a bomb in a car or own body is not Islam. It is not permissible in Islam. Such incidents are happening as people are being misled by a section. Islam is being used to achieve political mileage and positions,” he said. Maulana Sadiq also vehemently opposed terror activities and stated that any true follower of Islam can never be a terrorist. A souvenir was also released on the occasion. Organising secretary, Waqar Rizvi, Syed Kazim Raza and others were also present during the function.
