Islamic Terrorism in India

Most Muslims are not terrorists, but most terrorists are Muslims

Saif Ali Khan declares, No terrorist is a Muslim

“I don’t think 26/11 or earlier 9/11 are Islamic acts. No matter what people say, I don’t think any terrorist is a Muslim. Let’s make that distinction very clear. Of course the population of Afghanistan may disagree with me. But I condemn 26/11 as a deed done by non-Muslims,” declares Saif.”

No terrorist Muslim: ‘Jehadi’ Saif
5 May 2009, Subhash K Jha, TNN

If your jaws dropped on seeing the prim ‘n’ propah Saif Ali Khan speak colourful language as Langda Tyagi in Omkara, you will be even more shocked to see him play an Islamic fundamentalist in Rensil D’Silva’s forthcoming film.

Born and brought up in a non-conservative westernised atmosphere, this role has been a life-changing experience for Saif. The actor elaborates, “The role has not only made me more politically aware, it has also made me more religious. Earlier, I was more spiritual than religious. I knew a lot of things about Islam and always believed in the higher power. But when I did a lot of reading on Islam, the one most decisive thing that I learnt had to do with Allah. We tend to presume Allah to be the Muslim God. But Allah is the Arab word for the ‘same God’, or the ‘one true God’ that, I thought, was a wonderful thing to learn while doing this character. All religions believe in the oneness of God. So what’s all the fighting about? Whether it’s Christianity, Islam or Judaism, many of the religions have fought a holy war at one time or another. It’s been a part of religious history.”

It’s not often that you come across roles that change your perception about life. Saif admits that his role in Rensil’s film has not just changed his views towards life but also religion. “It’s the most politically relevant character I’ve played. Though my character Langda Tyagi in Omkara was a political creature, his politics was subverted. In Rensil’s film, I play the Jehadi as a very real and suave gentleman, dressed in very dapper clothes like a college professor and hence more frightening. I play an Islamic fundamentalist while Vivek Oberoi plays the more moderate Muslim,” says Saif.

“To me the whole point of being an actor is to become characters I can’t be in real life. My character in Rensil’s film is redeemed at the end. But even if he wasn’t, I’d still say yes to a role that explores my emotions that lie too deep for fears and tears. My character in Rensil’s film has become the way he has because of the way Americans have treated Afghanistan and other Islamic states. I don’t think 26/11 or earlier 9/11 are Islamic acts. No matter what people say, I don’t think any terrorist is a Muslim. Let’s make that distinction very clear. Of course the population of Afghanistan may disagree with me. But I condemn 26/11 as a deed done by non-Muslims,” declares Saif.

  1. My brother Saif Ali Khan is very correct. He puts his opinion as we should not individualize the issue any more. So, ‘No Muslim can be Terrorist’ on his own. It is a randomization of Islamic soceity. And as such All Muslims are Terrorists. We should not mis-understand that fellow, a product of Patoudi Ali Khan, the play boy of Cricket and idol of Sharmila Tagore. Yes, Muslim sperm is so active that the womb of Sharmila did nothing to change the attitude of this Swain Ali.

    These Talibanis are not Muslims.
    These ISI are not Muslims.
    These HUJI are not Muslims.
    These LeT are not Muslims.
    Afjal Guru is not Muslim.
    Azmal Ameer Kasav is not Muslim.
    These Sabana Azmi & Teesta Sheetalvad are not Muslims.
    Ooops. This increasing list is not of an Islamic character nor the supporter of the Terrorists. All these Terrorists should be slit off in the holy name of Allaha !!!!!!!!!!

    Proves the point again and again how moderate moslems(there are none) as the world loves to divide the moslem populace, when they come in touch with “real islam” which the Koran preaches, turn into unassuming fundamentalists. Imran Khan is another clown. Heck, the list is endless. _watch_this_space_ is what I would suggest to my fellow Indians, Hindus in particular.

    So much for the myth of moderate muslim. There are muslims-in-name-only (like Dr.A.P.J. Kalam) and muslims, and that is all. Indians must not be fooled by these so-called “moderate” muslims and be especially wary of converts like Barkha Dutt, who, though converted to islam, has retained her Hindu name and spews vitriol about Hinduism on TV channels.

    What is this joker’s point? Is it that terrorists are only non-muslims? And has he read the following verses of Quran?
    12. (Remember) when your Lord inspired the angels, “Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes.” 13. This is because they defied and disobeyed Allâh and His Messenger. And whoever defies and disobeys Allâh and His Messenger, then verily, Allâh is Severe in punishment. 14. This is the torment, so taste it, and surely for the disbelievers is the torment of the Fire.

    What are quoted above the verses 12, 13 and 14 from Surah 8 Al-Anfal of the Quran. The right thing for Saif is to become an ex-Muslim and embrace the gentle religion of his mother.

    That means Mohammed Ghaznavi was not a Muslim and no Muslims ever terrorised India. Their decendents should call themselves non-muslims.

    People and comments like this have made the Islamic community go loony. Celebrities like Saif, SRK, Amir Salman Nasir can make a big difference if only they had the guts to call Islam what it is – a violent supremacist political system in the guise of religion and using God. Saif should read thru the Quran and Islamic history and declare how pretentious and dangerous Islam is. No religion justifies violence in the way Islam does. Quran is full of verses where the infidel is to be dead, or not trusted until converted. Iqbal the greatest Urdu poet clearly wanted Muslims to be like Mahmud of Ghazni or Aurangzeb. Saif can get away with this BS simply because Hindus or non Muslims in India and the world for that matter are either too decent, or simply do not have the guts, or perception to talk out against Islam. The few who do are put under fatwas or simply beheaded or killed.

    The time you people spend on spewing hate against Islam, if you’d spend half of that time to read the Holy Quran with exegesis, it will be a lot better for you.

    Saif knows jack about Islam..or may be he does but is practising al Taquiyah…Terrorism is an inherent part of Islam..saif should understand that Islam is a supremacist religion that seeks to take over the world for Allah is hermeticially sealed religion which allows no exit for its members other than by beheading. A person of saifs background should nto be making excuses for Islamic terror. As Christopher Hitchins calls Judaism, Christianity & Islam as the ‘Axis of evil’..One God Two God 1000 gods is not the question..the thing is Islam is Mohamads way or highway..during his peaceful missionary activite Mohammad won no more than 150 converts..only with war and murders and Al Taqiyah deceit Islam became a world religon of terror. Sharmila did a horrible job and let Saif adopt Islamci beliefs.

    All muslims are terrorists including saif ali khan, they are just practising taqiyya (deception) because they are in minority.
