wow, It's open my eyes.
From giving word Allah refer to christian word, it become conflict and arise fanaticism. I think we must wake up silent majority (that's including me).
But still... i don't know what to do. There are so many writing in media and opinion in our mosque(yep, i'm moeslem). I believe in diversity and respect religious freedom. I do believe all religion have a good cause. It have the same principal to keep all human peace and harmony.
How we wake silent majority. How we contribute and prevent this matter in the future? Still unanswered question...to me.
I suggest Arbania n Dibyaguna: First of all v must try to stop the media n our so called moderate rlgs leaders, pltcians etc frm using the wor "moderate". By using this word n cnnctg it wt Muslims n Islam, subconsciously they acknwledge that "Islam is not a moderate religion, Muslims are generally not moderates - hwever there are some who are moderates".
We do not see Christians, Buddhista, Hindus, and others using the wrd "moderate" as commonly as the Muslims. We do hear abt "radical" Hindus, Buddhistas, Christians etc. This implies that those religions r not radical, but there some followers who are.
Can u c the dffrnce?
This is nt a small dffrnce. This reflects our collective consciousness. We r actually spreading fear by the use of the word "moderates"
N, the so called moderates take full advantage of this by enriching themselves wt funds frm US, Europe, as well as some middle eastern countries who are made to believe that they can protect their peoples by funding the so called moderates.
Think abt this, salaam, Allah Haafiz
You suggest we change our thought. Using "Moderate" as key message become negative opinion to public. As solution , we must encounter with this matter and provide better key message in public.
We still can use word "radical" to some news to explain the event from arbania's news. It is need to be accepted that our friend is act in radical way (yep, sometime i agree with their action, but not anymore) and respond not with emotional behavior.
We must describe the fact with appropriate weight between opinion and reality. Accept our friend have conduct radical act make me feel more objective rather than agree because we have same religion. My mind is clear now
We also need to publish how Islam is respond to social problem and behave in common activity. Not a big story. In fact,only show them how we get married, goes to shopping, how we dress, and little thing in daily activity. We show Islam can be blended in every culture like in Indonesia.
Yep, I got the point.Oke Nik (Arbania) What do you need?
