The protests were made and demonstrations were staged by Muslims all over the world condemning the blasphemy movie made by US against their Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) which shattered the feelings of billions of Muslims and damaged the simple meaning of freedom of thought and speak.
The word ‘Islam’ is derived from the Arabic word ‘Salema’ meaning peace and purity. A Muslim is the person who believes in the presence of Allah (God), loves His beloved Prophet ‘Muhammad (pbuh) and his teachings of Islam (peace).
One of the roots of Islam is to create a society based on justice to everyone in order to establish the peace and prosperity of society.
The British philosopher and the noble prize winner ‘Sir Thomas Carlyle’ wrote about Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in his famous book ‘The Heroes’ as follows:
“It is a great shame for anyone to listen to the accusation that Islam is a lie and that Muhammad was a fabricator and a deceiver. We saw that he remained steadfast upon his principles, with firm determination; kind and generous, compassionate, pious, virtuous, with real manhood, hardworking and sincere. Besides all these qualities, he was lenient with others, tolerant, kind, cheerful, and praiseworthy and perhaps he would joke and tease his companions. He was just truthful, smart, pure, magnanimous, and present-minded; his face was radiant as if he had lights within him to illuminate the darkest of night; he was a great man by nature who was not educated in a school nor nurtured by a teacher as he was not in need of any of this.”
The blasphemous movie made and released by US is a clear intention and a planned part to hurt the innocent feelings of Muslims living in any part of the world.
The defenders of this blasphemous movie claim that it should be accepted in the name of the ‘freedom of thought and speak’ for every citizen.
But in fact, the freedom of thought and expression does not allow a person to hurt the feelings of someone living in the society.
It does not allow one to destroy and create a divide in the society and to deliberately invoke the feelings of extremism in the people; if it does then this kind of freedom should not be tolerated and laws must be made to keep people united and peaceful.
One of such examples is the ‘law of Holocaust’ in which millions of Jews were killed and in Europe, it is not lawful to speak-up against this Holocaust.
This law is reasonable and acceptable to everyone as to many people the Holocaust is a matter that hurts their feelings.
The Muslims also demand international laws to be made in order to control such blasphemous acts done by making movies, cartoons and speeches against Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) which hurt the feelings of the greatest religious population in the world.
The US government is fighting the so-called ‘War of Terrorism’ in order to win the hearts of the people and to kill the roots of the terrorism and extremism but at the same time, it should take steps in order to eliminate such puppets in their own society who insult the feelings of the people and provoke religious terrorism and extremism as one can deduce from the worldwide peaceful protest recently by Muslims that they will not tolerate blasphemy against their beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
‘Say what is true, although it may be bitter and displeasing to people.’ Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
