Radical Islam, which today is growing in numbers all over the world, could ruin traditional Islam. The “Jihad for the purity of faith” proclaimed by the fanatics is trying to destroy not only the non-Muslim population of the planet, but even Muslims themselves. Radicalism has nothing in common with the Prophet Muhammad’s religion and is founded on political ideology of people far from faith, experts are convinced.
“The fact that radical groups purposefully use the terminology of the religious books and the ignorance of people, thus turning them into cannon meat and pushing them to kill their brothers in faith, in no way reflects the high ideals of Islam. They are nothing else but bandits who have overstepped the commandments of the Almighty. Unfortunately, today religious teachings are used for antihuman purposes increasingly often. For example, Jihad is primarily not a war against the unfaithful and defectors, but a fight against oneself, against one’s lowly feelings in order to perfect oneself, to be a decent, cultured and good person”.
Perhaps, if a common interpretation of the Quran appeared in the world of Islam, radical Islamists would have a much more difficult time manipulating the consciousness of the followers of Islam. Russia has already started working on such a canonical interpretation.
Jihad of radical Islam, which is not Islam but a political movement which uses the name of Islam, is killing Muslims as well as non-Muslims in the name of religion. This is not Islam but a disservice to Islam.
