Comments on: Osama bin Laden’s ideology thriving a year after his death Straight from the Specialists Sun, 06 Mar 2016 13:25:08 +0000 hourly 1 By: matiul Wed, 02 May 2012 03:38:40 +0000 Dear Mr Bhaskar
Please do not ruin your wonderful articles with mischievous rumors of any sort. I’m talking about the part on “farewell intercourse”. Had you shown only a little more diligence and patience in conducting your online research you would have discovered that it was a plain hoax and nowhere close to reality. Here, have this link: farewell-intercourse-law-a-hoax-by-mubar ak-supporters-74025/
Who spread it and what was their intention is something I’m not in a position to find out and so i’d practice restraint in this regard. And I would also advice you not to be rumor-monger!
Islam already has such a tarnished image that if people try to spread rumors about such insane “legislations”, people tend to give no second thoughts to them and start babbling them right away.
I agree that a lot needs to be done by the muslim societies all around the world to deal with the myriad problems that mire the everyday lives of millions of people living out there, the role of the non-muslim societies, in trying to give them a positive environment of trust and support, can not be undermined.
Talking about the regions where militancy is wide-spread and is only increasing with every passing day, the international society needs to understand that making efforts to bring about economic developments and removing despotic and dictatorial governments is the only way to bring the entire masses of the muslim population to a “peaceful mainstream”.
Just as the non-muslim world thinks of the muslim world as a threat to their existence, the insecure muslim world thinks of the rest of the world as a threat to their existence and this cold war is not going to end if the leaders from both the sides are not going the extra-mile of sorting out their own internal differences and making the best of efforts to build mutual trust and confidence followed with creating trade links.
