The  Rise of repressive regimes like the one in Russia has been facilitated by irresponsible acts of violence committed by individuals elsewhere in the name of islam.

United states had  always advocated Chechen rights before 9/11.Even after it, United states has occassionally taken Russia to task while trying to retain it as an ally in its fight against global terror.

The situation in Chechnya is a sad commentary of the changed global situation after 9/11 and the enormous damage caused to  freedom movements within places like chechnya due to the hijacking of the Islam by radical,,violent and right wing elements within it.

Are you saying the Mujahideen in Chechnya are wrong? I don't think I agree with you.

Please do not misquote me.

I never said anything about those  Mujahideen  in Chechnya who are genuinely fighting for their legitimate rights.


The point i was trying to make was that the senseless acts of violence  like (9/11 ,london bombings )committed in the name of Islam by the radical elements within it  have immensely harmed genuine freedom movements like the one in Chechnya against the Russian repression.

What makes you think that 9/11 and 7/7 were committed in the name of Islam?

Read this:

and this:

Think for yourself. It's your duty as a Muslim.

The articles produced are nothing new.There are dozens of conspiracy theories being circulated in the media.

Its a fact that 9/11 or the london subway incidents,the violent struggles in algeria and afghanistan,somalia,chechnya,bosnia,kashmir,southern thailand,middle east including iraq and palestine,lebanon all involve substantial muslim populations.

What worries me is the fact that Islam which is a very practical and pragmatic and peaceful  religion is being maligned as a religion advocating violence  due to senseless acts of violence by a fractional fringe group of muslims.

Resorting to senseless acts of violence is only going to bring misery and grief without resolving genuine problems in places like chechnya.

Muslims need to isolate trouble makers and violent extremists within their communities and delve deeper and work  pragmatically with all parties concerned to arrive at workable solutions .

Nothing is easy but violence is definitely not the solution either.
