About Islam And Sharia (Muslim Law)

Not conjuring or denigrating the religion of Islam but it is reported that the Taliban - an Islamic Militant Group who is responsible for the gunning down of a 14 year old girl blogger in Islamabad actually quoted that "anyone who campaigns against Islam and Sharia (Muslim law) is ordered to be killed by Sharia." Now, Muslims all over the world including members in myLot have been time and again claimed that Islam is about peaceful and loving. However, the world has been seeing and experiencing its contradiction and have paid a very heavy price with lives. The argument that Taliban ARE NOT Muslims or that they are radicals, fundamentalists, or extremists even. But, from what the Taliban's claim I am sure there MUST be such an order in the Quran/Koran and Sharia (Muslim law). Otherwise, it would be expected from the good Muslims an equally strong response to such Muslims or worse radicals who had erred and conducted the blasphemous violent act to shame the good religion Islam. I firmly believed that we have yet to see such a needed response from the general and good Muslims. Why is this so? Isn't this supporting the fact that the religion Islam to be an overbearing, oppressive and violent?

Hi, No comment here, the only observation I get is that Christians, having seen "The Last Temptation of Christ" hardly raised hell for it. Even if most criminals are "Christians" they don't necessarily kill for their religious belief but out of their chosen profession, i.e. carnapping, robbery, hold up, the works.

I don't see how the good Muslims could not know and do anything to the Taliban when the whole Muslim could go up in arms against the anti-Islam movie. In the same light, I am sure you will agree with me that the Taliban is not only misrepresenting Islam but are actually blasphemous. But, we can see the stark difference of reaction against them. I do not understand the double standard here.

There is response from general Muslims but perhaps you are not aware of it. http://pakteahouse.net/2012/10/10/pakistan-prays-for-malala-yousafzai/ http://www.aljazeera.com/news/asia/2012/10/201210106181212264.html http://dawn.com/2012/10/11/all-hearts-and-prayers-with-yousafzai/ http://www.thenews.com.pk/Todays-News-6-137068-Prayers-offered-for-early-recovery-of-Malala-Yousafzai

Thanks and No Thanks again, 00! All of the links that you had "painstakingly" copy & paste and unfortunately, ALL of them did not see any retaliation from the good Muslims like on the Taliban. Instead, the Taliban are living another day to perform another assassination attempt on this girl if she is alive. It is a known fact that everyone including non-Muslims are praying for the recovery of Malala Yousafzi.

Compared to the reprisal of the anti-Islam movie!? Why the stark difference and double standard? So far, like always it is just verbal condemnation and public outcry. Anything else? I don't think so.
