No religion preaches terror, then why do (in)humans practice it?
Even God must be shocked to see the brutal torture that the so called ‘God’s people’, better known as terrorists, have forced into our lives. The brutality has gone to such an extent that very soon it will be difficult to identify the red planet, whether it is Mars or the bloodied Earth.
Nowadays, I feel scared to read the newspaper or switch on the TV, fearing a new terror attack in some part of the world. Terror is no more restricted to a particular region, it has spread all over the planet.
Brussels under attack
Belgium’s capital Brussels, which is known for its 17th century guild houses and intrinsic gothic history, has made to the news headlines for an unfortunate happening. March 22 was just another normal day before abnormalities shattered the peace-loving city. Bomb blasts thrashed Brussels international airport and the city’s Maelbeek metro station which led to the death of more than 30 innocent people and hundreds were injured. Within minutes of serial attacks, the beauty of the city was brought down to blood stains and tears.
Two suicide bombers, who are believed to be dead at the explosions in Zaventem airport, have been identified as Khalid and Brahim el-Bakraoui and the third suspect, Najim Laachraoui is on the run. The Islamic State (IS) group took responsibility for the attacks in a statement issued on the IS-linked Amaq agency.
Terror takes a toll on the rest of the world too
Few months ago, Paris was enslaved to terror with the death hundreds of people in a series of terrorist attacks. More than a decade ago, the US was shaken by terrorists at the 9/11 attacks.
Countries like Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq and even India among other countries witness terror attacks every now and then. It is sad that the sound of a bomb blast has become very common in these countries.
The search for humanity
Where is humanity hiding or has it really sunk deep into the center of the planet? Or do we ‘humans’ need to start learning from animals on how to live in harmony? Animals don’t have any religion; they are far more in serenity.
But is it really the fault of religion? Religion was introduced into this world with the purpose of maintaining a system of what’s right and what’s wrong. But over the eras, a bunch of cowards have ‘intentionally’ misinterpreted the teachings of religion and in the name of God, they have tried to empower themselves by spreading terror.
But a ray of hope lives on! That day is not far away when a dream will come true and humanity will conquer terror.
