Muslim Graveyard to Good for Terrorist

When I first saw this piece from the UK Times Online I nearly dropped my jaw to the floor. Finally, we have a Muslim group that refuses to accept terrorism even post mortem after a terrorist attack. The local cemetery in Mumbai India is refusing to allow the terrorists in the horrible attack to be buried in their Muslim cemetery. Good for them!

Murder is not allowed in the Muslim faith just as it is not allowed in the Christian and Jewish faith’s. For that matter any religion or dare I say atheist thought process. And yet time and time again the faithful allow the monsters to be buried next to the devout followers of their faith simply because they do not recognize the ultimate sin after the killer has died. I’m all for pulling a middle ages tactic and draw and quarter the scumbags and scatter their remains to the four corners of the world. There is no honor in terrorism that is based on killing innocent people and there should be no respectful burial for terrorists. Over at the Times Online they have this on it…

Muslim graveyard refuses to bury terrorists in Mumbai

Nico Hines, and Rhys Blakely in Mumbai

A Muslim graveyard in the heart of Mumbai has broken with Islamic tradition and refused to bury the bodies of nine terrorists who were killed during the attack on India's financial capital.

The influential Muslim Jama Masjid Trust, which runs the 7.5-acre Badakabrastan graveyard, said it would not bury the gunmen because they were not true followers of Islam.

Hanif Nalkhande, a spokesman for the trust, said: "People who committed this heinous crime cannot be called Muslim. Islam does not permit this sort of barbaric crime."

At least ten gunmen killed nearly 200 people in a series of coordinated attacks that began on Wednesday evening and swept south Mumbai. The strikes targeted two luxury hotels, the city's main train station, a hospital and a Jewish centre.

My congrats to the faithful in Mumbai that have taken the strongest step possible in declaring terrorism an abomination of the Muslim faith. This madness has to end and if it begins in a faith hi-jacked by madmen then it must end with a declaration by good men and woman from that same faith.

I’m reminded of Jay Severin of 96.9 FM WTKK radio in Boston declaring that “If all Muslims are not terrorists why are all terrorists Muslim.” I had to paraphrase that because I thought it was race bating and religion bashing. But that is how Jay entertains his listeners.

It is up to the faithful in the Muslim faith to cast out the thought and idea that terrorism against their fellow man is the only answer. Innocent people died just because these people wanted to murder someone for some cause that had no bearing on the lives they destroyed. Extremists have taken over every faith to date in one form or another at one point in time. It is up to those that believe in the faith to put it back to where the original message stood firmly.

I thank the Muslim people in India for refusing to honorably bury these animals and monsters that killed innocent people just because they could. It’s a beginning.

I have been deeply concerned that members of the peaceful Islam religion have not spoken out more against the Islamic Jihad since 9/11, particularly Muslim-Americans. This story is, indeed, significant!

The problem with Jay Severin’s thesis is: all terrorists are NOT Muslims. Timothy McVeigh, Ted Kaczynski, Seung-Hui Cho (Virginia Tech killer) and Charles Whitman come to mind.

My former husband once said, “No army on earth can stop one religious fanatic.” I think he was right, but there are other terrorists who are ideological fanatics, or just poor crazed souls.

Good post! BJ

Tiny agrees with you and BJ. The same stands for the Extremist Christians who think it is okay to invade and kill people in other countries. I know they will argue there's a difference between "kill and murder." Not acording to Master Teachers who say:

"Fear not those who destroy your body, but fear those who destroy your soul."

It can't be said more clear than that. Have those who destroy the bodies of other people lost their own souls? It certainly appears so.

Did you hear the good news? Obama is making it better for us already! Most people don't realize how much money there is out there. During economic times like this, there is more money to be had than ever. Because of the bailouts and economy, lenders are bending over backwards to bail you out too. Believe it or not, there is people getting tons of cheap money nowdays to start businesses, buy homes, pay off debt, and more. Bailout is for YOU
