Pakistan: Muslim clerics declare that “Islam has nothing to do with extremism and terrorism”

In Pakistan, “representatives of political and religious organisations of the country have agreed unanimously to carry out a joint-struggle for the elimination of the menace of terrorism and extremism from the country.”

If these clerics truly wished to “denounce terrorism” and “resolve to end menace,” they would at least start by resolving to end the menace of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws and use their influence to free Asia Bibi to live in peace.

“The joint declaration asserted that extremist and terrorist mindset has caused the most harm to Islam and the Muslim world. ‘Islam has nothing to do with extremism and terrorism as teachings of Islam and the Holy Prophet (PBUH) has stressed on seeking moderate way.’”

Most stunning about such bizarre and brazen lies is that they are believed by so many. The clerics don’t seem to have defined “terrorism.” Do they mean the actions of jihadis, or of America and Israel?

As Muhammad said: “War is deceit.” Sahih Bukhari (52:269)

Please send me, as a comment to this page, any old material you have for inclusion in The Daily Joke Alert - to help enable us all to have our fancy tickled regularly! Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
