The Massacre

The recent massacre of children in Peshawar (my home town) is gruesome, and shows how bestial humans are. I refuse to call them Muslims. If they were really Muslims, they wouldn’t have committed this carnage.

My cousin’s Tariq’s two sons, a nine year old, and a sixteen years old who attended this school were buried yesterday. My heart grieves with all those mothers who suffered the loss of their children.

Those who directed this carnage are people full of hatred, and venom against Muslims. They make a mockery of God, and Islam.

These killers are mercenaries, paid to wreck havoc where their masters want them. It is shameful to call them Muslims. I hope all those people are exposed, and caught, and publicly hanged. That will be proper justice.

Below is a copy of AJ’s post:

New post on Musings of AJ
Don’t you dare call these killers Islamists, Jihadists, or anything that ties them with Islam
by AJ
Quran – 5:32
Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land – it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one – it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, [even] after that, throughout the land, were transgressors.
According to preliminary Pakistan Army reports that have come in, the suicide militants involved in the attack on Army Public School in Peshawar are Uzbeks and were communicating with people in Afghanistan. Uzbeks have been tied in with previous attacks in Pakistan as well. The question is what interest does Uzbeks have in spreading terror in Pakistan – it definitely has nothing to do with Islam. If this were a girls school or a Shia mosque or a Christian church, Islamophobic apologists would have found something to support their mantra of Muslims hating Shias/women/Christians/non-believers/fill-in-what-seems-stereotypical and thus wanting to kill them. But what would they say about the killing of 132 Muslim male children who seem predominantly Sunni? The Islamophobes’ standard explanation of one size fits all doesn’t hold here. Why wouldn’t they just accept that these killing terrorists are just that – killers, without faith? And no, holding banners in chocolate shops and behind suicide bombers professing Shahada doesn’t make them Islamic or Muslims or Islamists or Jihadists if they participate in activities that Islam strongly detests and prohibits – the murder of innocents – who could be more innocent than these 132 school-aged children slaughtered in cold blood? So, for the love of humanity stop blaming my faith when next time a terrorist kills someone innocent.

  1. It is indeed the most horrific thing one could do. Worse, they do it by tarnishing Islam. If only they had taken efforts to understand the word of God. My heart goes out for those young souls, who perhaps will step into Jannah In-shaa Allah. Ameen.

      1. Yes. It is hard to imagine the loss. The very sight of the massacre was so painful. Being there and experiencing it must have been so horrible for the children. It shall be the most daunting memory for humanity for a long time. May the hearts be eased. InShaa Allah. Ameen.

  2. This was a terrible terrible tragedy done at the hands of men that claim to have “faith.” My heart and soul hurts for the parents of these innocent babies. Sadly, those who participate in this carnage do tarnish the Islam faith in the eyes of all mankind.
