The pure evil of state-terrorism

Double standard has become the most established norm in world politics; one rule for the Muslims and another rule for the non-Muslims is now visible everywhere. If a terrorist attack takes place in a western city by a Muslim, the western governments, the European Union, the media outfits, even the UN Security Council, spare no time to condemn it.

Such condemnation by the western leaders is very selective -only to promote their anti-Muslim bias and animosity. Because of such hateful mind-set, any act of terrorism even by a lone Muslim bomber –without any involvement of any Muslim state or institution, is labelled as Islamic terrorism. Thus, Islam –the religion of 1.6 billion Muslims gets vilified. But such condemnation doesn’t happen if the Muslims become the target of non-Muslim terrorists. MORE
