India - Terrorists distort Islam, Quran: Shah Rukh Khan

Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan has launched a scathing attack on Islamic clerics who preach terrorism, accusing them of distorting the Quran and said these forces must be 'shunned and isolated'.

"Jihad was supposed to be propagated by the Prophet himself. But unfortunately, now two versions of Islam exist. There is an Islam from Allah and very unfortunately, there is an Islam from the Mullahs," Khan told a TV channel in an interview.

Appealing for providing youngsters with the 'right reading' of the Quran, the 43-year-old superstar said political parties should not be allowed to pursue communal agenda and there should be a law which will not allow any party to 'misread' any of the holy books.

"I think for hardliners, both of Hindus and Muslims, there should be a law against them that no party's agenda can be communal. There should be a hardliner treatment for the hardliners," he said.

Khan, who is a favourite in Pakistan, did not favour bombing Pakistan to flush out terrorists holed up there responsible for terror attacks in the country. "No, absolutely not. This is a passionate reaction," he said.

When asked whether he fancied himself in a public role, he said, "I am not scared. But I am not selfless enough to be a politician. I wish five years down the line, I could do something for this country."

Khan was of the view that there could be some 'positive' outcomes to the tragedy.

"I think for the first time, we all have come to realise that unity has got strengthened. That is the biggest positive outcome. They have now given us the biggest weapon against them," he added.

In a press interview on 6th December, Shah Rukh Khan, the renowned Bollywood film star, told dark lies that the Koran does not inspire terrorism. He told the press that he has read the Koran and it does not contain any verse that instructs to kill innocent people. "Nowhere in the Quran does it says that 'jihad' will lead you to 'jannat' (heaven)... Unfortunately, now two versions of Islam exist. There is an Islam from Allah and unfortunately, there is an Islam from the Mullahs," said the superstar. On the contrary, he said, the Koran says that if anyone hurts another man, he hearts the entire humanity and if one heels another man, he heels the entire humanity. In fact, Khan has quoted the verse (5.32) of the Koran that reads “…whoever killed a human being, except as punishment for murder or other villainy in the land, shall be regarded as having killed all mankind; and that whoever saved a human life shall be regarded as saving all mankind.” It should be pointed out here that whenever Koran uses such lofty humane words, it should be understood that this humanity is confined within the Muslims alone. Koran has no headache to save the lives of the kafirs (non-Muslims) or doing any good to the kafirs. According to the Koran, kafirs are to be slain wherever they could be found.
So the verse (9.5) of the Koran says, “Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters (i.e. kafirs) wherever ye find them, and take them (captive) and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is forgiving, Merciful.” Furthermore, through this verse, Koran declares that for the kafirs in a dar-ul-Islam (or a Muslim country), there are two alternatives, either Islam or death.
Today, only an ignorant person, unaware of the contents of the Koran, can say that Islam never preaches terrorism. But if Shah Rukh Khan has said all those utter lies, knowing fully well the contents of the Koran, his intention was simply to misguide and deceive the kafirs. But Khan should know that kafirs today are not so ignorant about Islam as they had been 10 or 20 years ago and it is not so easy to fool them now.
