Peeps, seriously: can we not turn this into an(other) Islam-bashing thread? No one has owned up to orchestrating the attacks and there are various groups who could be behind it...

i agree if no one has claimed responsibility or found guilty, it is bad no matter who done it

maybe ur teacher (who invalidated the jihad of the sahaba and the salaf and every other jihad after the prophet SAW died) made it up

That's being silly. They are still associating themselves with a particular idea whether you like it or not. End of discussion since its really going off topic and its demoralizing to see so many killed, even I am a little shook up by this.
(Original post by ARealNowhereMan)
But in doing so they remove themselves from said religion or ideology. They just use a line or two from our holy book to justify all this **** and I hate it and it should be recognised that in doing what they do “in the name of [insert religion], they eject themselves from said religion.

I get very emotional about this. Sorry for wasting people’s time while reading this.

Anyway, I’m sorry for disrupting this thread, and apologise to those with relatives, friends or who were themselves there in these attacks. I’m leaving the thread so as to not cause further dispruption.

Terrorists have killed hundreds of thousand more muslims than non muslim. Picking things out of context is wrong. There are people on TSr creating division again. Fake accounts and brainwashed fools. Get a life

I wish the best for Sri Lanka. Beautiful country.

That's purely because they don't see those muslims as real/devout enough muslims, so it invalidates the point.

Aside from that, is there any need for you to get involved in dividing arguments, on the same day that over 200 people have been killed? No, the answer is no.

I think this applies to both sides.

I'm a Sri Lankan Buddhist and my whole extended family live in Dehiwala and other places in Colombo. And we have Christian friends.

Luckily, they are all fine. I'm incredibly grateful and relieved. It's so upsetting to think this is all happening in my hometown, and I can't do much to help since I'm in the UK.

Oh gosh, it must have been very worrying for you when you heard the news. Glad your family are fine though

Jihad is not allowed unless sanctioned by a prophet, of which none are still alive
what about all the jihads ( ie most of them) that occurred after mohammeds death?

official jihad or not, islamist terrorist groups can and do operate in various countries where there is a muslim population using dogma pulled from hadith etc to inspire murder. indoctrination is one of the most powerful tools a terrorist has

as i made reference to in a previous post- the sri lankan intelligence agency had intel on a specific threat from a known islamist group there, but due to some tragic admin mix up, it was never acted upon

good 'standard meaningless response' but in reality there arny many other groups in that region currently that could have, beyond the one sri lankan intellgence already know about..

Islam-bashing not acceptable

Islamist terrorism bashing surely is acceptable?

it would be equally disprespectful to ignore who the murderers were and prevent other such attacks by the same islamist group. the current media blackout by the sri lankan government seems to simply be a means to cover their own incompetance than any civic reasons

Suspects haven’t been confirmed. Focusing on who did this rather than the victims, is disrespectful. Buddhists are the majority, shutdown of social media has nothing to do with covering up anything, the world has never been shy to point fingers.

I’m not that religious, but I know Easter Sunday is a very special day for so many Christians like my family. No one should every feel in danger in their place of worship
