Islam is far from being cruel or hard. Islamic Shari`ah never justifies or teaches violence or injustice

We read the horrible news that a 14-year-old child activist was shot in the head in the former Taliban stronghold of Swat Valley on Tuesday.
Does Islam condone such attacks? Is this Islamic?

Islam is far from being cruel or hard. Islamic Shari`ah never justifies or teaches violence or injustice
Muslim groups are called to preach Islam by means of wisdom and dialogue and to translate Islamic teachings of mercy and justice into practice. Individuals and groups are not entitled to take the law in their own hands. The State should play its role in defending people’s lives, honor, and properties.


Unfortunately, some Muslim individuals or groups may distort the image of Islam by means of their irresponsible actions. The horrible crime of shooting a 14-year-old Pakistani girl due to her intellectual views or personal thoughts is NOT Islamically justified and its perpetrators should be held accountable for it

People’s thoughts and views, moreover, cannot be changed by force. Violence is not an option to spread one’s values or views. Peaceful and scientific dialogue is the effective way to share and discuss views and personal convictions.  If this reported horrible incident is true, its perpetrators should be brought to justice for such an unwarranted crime.

May Allah accept your and our good deeds
