And terrorism is negotiable, but jihad isn’t.
This shows why Muslims who condemn “terrorism” aren’t going far enough: when jihadists commit acts of violence in the name of jihad, often neither they nor their coreligionists consider what they have done to be terrorism at all.
If the State Department were really aware of what is fueling global terror, it would go back to Dr. Amir Liaquat Hussain and tell him: yes, sir, a reformation in the teaching of jihad is precisely what is needed, and if you don’t eliminate violent jihad and the imperative to fight Jews and Christians from your curricula, Pakistan will no longer be a friend of the United States.
KARACHI (PPI) – Minister of State for religious affairs, Dr. Amir Liaquat Hussain Saturday called upon Western countries to differentiate between Jihad and terrorism, saying topics related to “Jihad” could not be eliminated at any cost from curricula being taught at educational institutions and Madaris.
“Jihad is part of our religion and we can’t abandon it. However, practically Jihad is not possible as for that purpose, we have armed forces” he told a news conference at Karachi Press Club (KPC).
He said he start visits of Madaris all over the country from Monday next in order to bring religious harmony and convince them to impart formal education to their students.
