Young Algerian Muslim student: "We Muslims are hypocrites: Daesh, it is us."
We Muslims are hypocrites: Daesh, it is us. (AsiaNews).
Sharia "invented" by Ulemas and taught in Islamic schools is the same law practiced by the Islamic State militants. The "religious jurisprudence, founded more than 10 centuries ago," has “chained and rusted our brain and that of our children." It is urgent to modernize the Muslim religion and free it from the ambiguities linked to the past. The courageous appeal of a young Algerian Muslim student.
After the massacre at the hands of Daesh or some Islamic terrorist, then comes the time of the game for the attributions of responsibilities. Many Western people accuse the Muslim religion; the Islamic world tries to ward off all ties between violence and Islam saying immediately: "This is not Islam." The same happened in these days, after the terrorist attacks in Istanbul, Baghdad and Dhaka, claimed by the Islamic State in a more or less official form. Just hours after these massacres, we received this short reflection on behalf of a young Algerian (Muslim) student. He is 27-year-old and lives in France. He accuses the Islamic world of hypocrisy as on one hand they reject the work of Daesh, while on the other they dream of establishing the Sharia in the entire world. The young author stresses the need for Muslims to reform and modernize their faith, abandoning those elements related to the historical past of the Islamic community, and (unfortunately) usually "preached in our mosques and taught in our schools."
