Truly the saga of Islam is extending its tentacles throughout the globe and as per latest researches, at the present time, it enjoys 1.57 billion adherents, making up 23% of the world population. This is certainly a major feat and may be you are averse to all these but the reality can’t be expunged even for once. Well, personally I would have been happiest if all these had taken place peacefully. But again – the reality is something else. The progression of Islam has never been peaceful and where on earth it has reached, got associated with the land and made it as its bastion, a river of blood has been the first and foremost feature.
Mysticism is not uncommon in Islam but a good number of theologians confirm that any such tenet has failed to sustain its own independent presence like other religions on the whole and has been made use of over and over again to persuade Kafir s (non-believers in Islam) to become Muslim.
Now a question comes to pass to a student of management. Which techniques have played most important roles to sustain the victory march of Islam? Indeed there are lots; there have been innovations in development and execution of those through centuries and all these have led to the growth of Islamic extremism.
Don’t consider me as an infidel if I fail to differentiate between extremism and Islam, in full swing for more than a millennium. But if one is too interested to know the techniques, he must heed Allama Tahir Ashrafi, Chairman of Pakistan Ulema Counsel (PUC). The honorable individual has recently stated that easy availability of instigating literature in the market happens to be the core reason behind the exponential growth of extremism in Pakistan. He was found to state the same while denouncing a recent bomb blast in Lahore, leading to death of more than 10 persons and injury of hundreds of others.
In accordance with revered Allama Tahir Ashrafi, literature and CDs spreading hate against all schools of thoughts are highly available in Pakistani markets. And the governance in Pakistan simply fails to take any action against all these.
Is the situation in India too different? To find out the reality one must have a clear and unbiased perspective. A little introspection is enough to determine the reality. Almost each and every Muslim locality (termed as ghetto by Indian secularists) across India is getting stronger bit by bit. Undoubtedly, the aforesaid areas are arsenals but apart from these hate literatures and treasonable CDs are being found here at random.
Muslims to strengthen Islamic Ummah (the Muslim community or people, considered to extend from Mauritania to Pakistan) and conquer non-Islamic areas innovate newer techniques every now and then. If one has to live by taking on and trouncing Islamic proficiency, he must be smart, prudent and also roughshod at the same instant.
