Recently I came across this article on BBC about the killer of a Pakistani governor a few years back being hanged for his crime. Two things just really don't sit well with me at all about this.
- the look on the killer's face when he is in police custody
- the amount of protests happening against his execution
It really is a sign of our times where so many evil actions are disguised as 'for the religion' and regarded as justifiable. This is not the way Muslims as an Ummah can find their way to Allah and expect Him to be pleased with us. Do those who would speak ill of us or our Messenger (saw) or our Rabb, deserve death at our hands or our prayer for their guidance? Islam was not meant to be a vengeance against mankind, it is a mercy and guiding light to separate the right from wrong. Any Muslim who does not understand this, knows little of the religion they think they follow.
