Terrorism has no religion

'After Norway, do we need to rethink the labelling of ‘Islamic’ terror?' - a question posed by NDTV.

It’s really sad to see and hear many people blame a particular community for some bloody mishap that occurs around the world. It may be surprising to know that such individuals call themselves forward looking and progressive. And yet such narrow minded thinking. They just want to make a scapegoat of one community or religion and brand them all as black sheep. Is this what education teaches us? Is this what humanity teaches us? It’s no point going to yatras and God's abode when they fail to realize that humanity and compassion are the basic essence of ANY religion.

When a person falls sick one doesn’t generalize him/her to any particular

caste/community/religion. Similarly terrorism should be considered as a disease.

A deadly disease for which one needs to find a cure immediately. Blaming or pointing fingers at any religion or community shows insensitivity and lack of education.

The truth lies in the fact that Terrorism has NO religion. It is a deadly disease for which cure has to be desperately found.

I am not very sure.If there is a preponderance of terrorists from a community people may assume that any attack is from some member of the community though it would be very wrong to brand the entire community.Terrorists are everywhere in all religious groups but the motivations differ as in Maoists,insurgents,frustrated groups,threatened individuals etc.

True its wrong to brand an entire community due to a few black sheep.
