Is hate the new religion?

A global war is inevitable, and the truth is, however well the nations prepare themselves, they will not stand a chance against terrorism

So over the past few days I have been researching about The ISIS and various other terrorist organisations around the globe for this article that I had to write. A lot of us have known over the past few years that with the rise of such organisations, that a global war is an inevitability.

  The truth is as however well the nations prepare themselves for this war, they will not stand a chance. The reason you ask? Well this is why -:

A recent plane crash in Pakistan that lead to a huge loss of life, drew out people who for some sick reason found this funny. Yes, people like this do exist and this is exactly why the terrorists will win.

The terrorists work on a single formula, and that is

Isolation of their target + Hate amongst people = Victory

With this formula it is not very difficult to understand i which direction we are headed. We can have all the fire power in the world, we may even beat the terrorists in an artillery battle but until and unless the people of the world understand that focusing their hate on a particular community or a nation is not the way to end terrorism we will not really be winning the war.

The only achievement that  focusing hate brings is isolation which in true sense is not an achievement at all.

If regular people feel that all they get in our  world is hate from multiple sources they will obviously feel safer with people who convince them that they will be respected.

ISIS and its counterparts are always on a rise in numbers mainly because it is becoming so much easier to brainwash people as to why joining their cause is the way to be. If regular people feel that all they get in our  world is hate from multiple sources they will obviously feel safer with people who convince them that they will be respected.

It isn’t too late yet. It isn’t too late for people to understand people from the other side of the border aren’t bad. It isn’t too late to understand that terrorists do not represent a particular religion or a nation. What they do however represent is an altogether new religion. The religion of Hate. The faster that people realize that they fall into the same religion while dissing communities, the easier it will be for them to come out.

A global war is coming, and the only way to win it, is to know who your true enemies are.

  1. I agree that isolation of a community makes it easier to radicalize, but it isn’t the whole story. The brand of Islam followed by a majority of middle eastern countries is highly intolerant and hateful. Switch religion of hate with “salafism” and your piece would still make sense.

    1. Hello Partha,
      Salafism again is concentrating on one particular religion and that too from a particular region, yes it is an issue no doubt, but are we saying other religions do not comprise of intolerant folks? Of course they do, so instead of classifying intolerance into different types according to religion we probably should focus on it as a whole.
