Hitler asked his generals “Is Paris burning” because he wanted to turn the city into rubble because his army was losing ground. But that never happened.
It’s inexplicable how humans can shoot, stab and run over people employing a truck with impunity and call it a service to god. France was celebrating Bastille Day and people were enjoying the fireworks minding their own business when a truck wreaked havoc by rrunning over hundreds of people at Nice. While so far 84 people have died, there is still a sad possibility of the rise in number. The driver of the truck was shot by police, but by then it was late already, he had painted palm-lined Promenade des Anglais RED with the blood of innocent men, women and children. Not since the end of Second World War and the terror attacks carried out by OAS in the late fifties and sixties has France witnessed such carnage. But the last eighteen months have been the bloodiest period in nearly fifty years and has pushed this country and its core believes of "Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité" to its limits. But to the astonishment of the world and to those who killed the innocent, the French still stand by their basic fundamental believes.
The last two years have not been kind to France and Europe in general because of constant terror attacks carried out by Islamic Death Cult ISIS, which follows puritanical form of Islam with aspiration for global Jihad and dominion of Islam over the world. Already ISIS has been responsible for the attack on the office of Charlie Hebdo which claimed the lives of ten journalists because they published images of Prophet Mohammad. And in November last year, they carried out a 26/11 Mumbai style attack on Paris which lead to the death of 130 people.
There have been constant onslaught from Islamic terrorists all over the world in the last two years which have claimed hundreds of lives all over the world. The list of attack includes the Bombings at Brussels airport which took the lives of 32 people and more recently at Dhaka, Bangladesh where Islamic terrorists who hailed from well-to-do and educated families took hostages and killed 20 foreigners because they could not recite the Quran. Among the dead was also a young Indian girl named Tarishi Jain, and the other Faraaz Ayaaz Hossain, who refused to leave his friend and chose death.
Then there was also the mass shooting at Orlando, Florida, Night club which was frequented by the LGBT community by a deranged individual named Omar Mateen. There was also a suicide bombing in Istanbul turkey when ISIS struck the international airport, killing 41 people. Then there were stabbing of people by lone wolf terrorists in France and Israel where dozens of people have died, and more recently a teenage girl was stabbed, while she was sleeping in her home, by a Palestinian. The attacks are not just limited to Europe, they have spread elsewhere as well. Just this month the ISIS carried out the deadliest bombing when Fedayeen struck with two bombs, attacking the district of Karrada and the suburb of Sha'ab in Baghdad, killing nearly 300 people and wounding several who were Muslims.

Also, in July Islamic terrorists attacked using a Pakistani suicide bomber who targeted security forces outside the Prophet's Mosque at Medina, Saudi Arabia, who also happen to be promoters and proponents of Wahabi Islam. Now it does not get any more personal then this when Islamic terrorists attack the Prophet’s Mosque because if they think this action is permitted then the world must realize that they will not stop killing civilians until they achieve their objectives. These terrorists cannot be called deranged because they are smart and ruthless in their approach when it comes to executing such heinous terror strikes. But they are surely fit to be called evil because, they believe in slavery and have brutally forced thousands of Yazidi women into sex slavery.
Terrorism has no religion, Terrorism has no religion if we repeat that a thousand times it is not going to go away
The time has arrived for the civilized world to get together, and fight ISIS and Islamic terror that is spread all over the world. In India, we have been victims of terror orchestrated by Pakistan and its ruling military which supports and gives training to Jihadis to wage an asymmetrical war on India. The time has come to stop distinguishing between good Islamic terrorists and bad Islamic terrorists. Taliban, lashkar e taiba and Boko Haram because they all espouse same ideology where one must not show any compassion to those who disagree with them.
It is time for Muslims to stand up and be counted because they are also victims. The days of answering attacks by just condemning and carrying on candle light vigils are over, because the very future of Islam practiced by so many peace loving and law abiding Muslims is at stake. No longer one can put out standard statements declaring ‘Islam is a religion of Peace’ These blood thirsty groups are out to kill anyone and everyone so thethe time has come to discuss this problem in equanimity and ameliorate this situation. The time has come to shun those who proselytize false and misinterpreted believes and values because they are simply conning the impressionable minds of our young people. A man like Zakir Naik who is an expert in Dog Whistle Islamic Evangelism uses scriptures to spread his hate. He uses insinuation to create doubt in the minds of people because, hey, don’t we all know "The devil can cite scripture for his purpose." The moment has arrived when the world must come together and do everything in their power to stop the spread of hate because it is counter-intuitive to our pluralistic way of life.
