Media Communique by ACJU re: destruction of a place of Buddhist worship in Bangladesh

User Rating: / 22

We are deeply disturbed and outraged by reports of the destruction of a place of Buddhist worship in Bangladesh.  We are saddened that this despicable act is said to have been committed by a group of misguided Muslims.  We unreservedly condemn this reprehensible act and call upon the Government of Bangladesh to take immediate action in this regard.

Such acts of religious bigotry and intolerance are completely prohibited by the tenets of Islam which is a peaceful and viable way of life.   The Holy Quran expressly states that there is no compulsion in religion and exhorts all Muslims to engage with persons of other faiths with reason and kindness.   The Holy Prophet of Islam (on whom be peace) was the very epitome of compassion and tolerance.  Islamic history is replete with instances embodying such tolerance.   If one may give a random pick – the Holy Prophet was persecuted and assaulted when he preached his message in the city of Taif.

By Dr Rifai Sulaiman, Naleemi (London)

Attacks and sinister criticism against Islam and Muslims have dramatically increased in the last few decades.  Since Salman Rushdie published his book satanic verses we have seen many provocative activities against Muslims throughout the world and particularly in European countries.   Sometimes, some anti-Muslim elements openly come out and attack Islamic places, mosques, and physically attack Muslim brothers and sisters. Many incidents of such attacks have been have been reported in many parts of European countries and  these provocative acts are expressed through books, news papers, magazines, cartoons and films to gauge emotional  pulses of Muslim people throughout the world.  Time to time provocative actions are taken by anti-Islamic forces to create communal tension between Muslim and Non-Muslim communities in Europe and more importantly to portray Muslims as violent and extremist people.
