What’s in it for me? See why Islam is inherently violent and needs reformation.
Ever since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, we’ve lived in an era of brutal violence committed in the name of Islam, especially these days, with the rise of terrorist groups such as Islamic State (IS) and Boko Haram.
But what is it that motivates Muslims to commit terrorist crimes? And how can such crimes be justified by religion?
These blinks offer insights on the religious foundations of Islamist terrorism, and the ways in which Islamic scriptures support violence against anyone who doesn’t believe in Islam or abide by its rules. See why a Muslim reformation is urgently needed, and why it has stalled so far.
In these blinks, you’ll learn
- why it’s so difficult for Muslims to criticize Islam;
- why some Islamic countries still apply seventh-century sharia law; and
- how an Islamic reformation will emerge.
