Mr. Javed Ahmad Ghamidi has mentioed in an interview that the root cause of terrorism that is being committed by some Muslims today is the religious thought, which is being preached in the Muslim Madrasas and being propogated through their political movements. Almost every single Madrasa and religious scholar is teaching the four main doctorines of this religious thought. They may not be doing it publically but they are doing it nevertheless- they surely are!
What are those four doctorine? Please note :
First : polytheism, Kufar or apostasy (someone abandons Islam) committed anywhere in the world, are all punishable by death and we have the right to implement this punishment.
Second thing they preach that the non-Muslims were born to be subjugated. None other than Muslims have the right to govern. Every non-Muslims government is illegitimate. We shall overthrow any such government whenever we have the capacity.
The third teaching is that all the Muslims of the world should be under the rule of single Islamic government, called the Caliphate. Their independent state has no legitimacy.
The fourth doctorine is that the modern nation is a form of Kufr and there us no room for Islam in it.
These are four basic tennets of our current religious thought.
Unless and until we confront the current religious narrative and replace it with the true narrative of Islam, such People (Terrorists) will continue to emerge - one after the other.
To perevent this Mr. Javed mentioned it is absolutely vital to institute three measures :
First training all Muslims in the counter narrative is a must.
Second is to appreciate that the education system of the religious seminaries (Madrasa) violates basic human rights. Specialised education in any field can't be forced on a child. It is the basic right if the child to have twelve years of broad based education. Thereafter he may chose to become a doctor or scholar. While Madrasas work on the principle of transforming a 7-8 years old children into a religious scholar. But nobody has the right to do it. This practice must be abandoned.
The third is that the Firday pulpit is not meant for the religious scholars. It is the domain of the state. This platform must seized by the state. If the state doesn't do it these Muslim houses of worship would be claimed and taken over by Brelvis, Deobandis, Ahl-hadith or some other denomination and no house of worship will ever belong to God.
