Pakistan: Violence, Terrorism and Islam

iFaqeer on Islam, leadership, terrorism and the politics of it all. “Given that, the problem as I see it, both with Muslims in the West and globally, and “communities of concern” in places like Karachi, and Kashmir, and Palestine, is that, now that there is “leadership” in place that a lot of us find less-than-savoury, in the way that deal with them, we have to be careful not to seem like we're trivializing the real issues that they base their politics upon; otherwise the “silent majority” that we say exists in those communities, and whose “hearts and minds” we say need to reach, get the wrong message and we're set back a long way in terms of solving the problems them that make the current options successful.”
