British Home Secretary Sajid Javid had the audacity at the weekend to accuse those who oppose his failed Prevent policy, as siding with extremists. He hopes, with such irresponsible remarks, to draw a black and white comparison: either you are secular or an extremist.
Prevent is a wholly oppressive policy designed to prevent people debating the secular values that are ruining the world today, under the guise of preventing violence, but in reality targeting the fundamental ideas of Islam that would challenge the current secular world order.
The fact is, Sajid and his secular ilk are the real supporters of extremism and terrorism in the world today. When discussing the acts of violence in the world today, pertinent questions need answering:
Who is radicalising the children who bully Muslims at school, if not the British government and their media lackies?
Who radicalised the ministers, like Mr Javid, who sent bombs and troops to terrorise the people of Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria?
Who radicalised the ministers and businessmen who supply arms to fuel the bloody conflict in Yemen?
Who radicalised the home and foreign office employees and businessmen who fund and direct violent insurgent groups perpetrating much of the violent acts of terrorism in the world today?
Who radicalised the BBC journalists who promote the misinterpretation of jihad as violence against civilians?
Who radicalised the ministers and foreign office employees who installed and support the governments of the Muslim world which perpetuate oppression and violence against their civilians every day – there are a million of their victims like Khashoggi – so who radicalised and trained these colonial agent rulers who do the dirty work of Western secular states?
Far from being terrorists and supporters of terrorism in the world, the Muslim Ummah has shown considerable restraint and humanity when considering the violent oppression that we suffer every day at the hands of this current secular world order.
The secular world order for the past century has brought humanity to the brink of destruction, inflicting a ferocious terror on people never before witnessed in history.
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:
إِنَّ مِمَّا أَدْرَكَ النَّاسُ مِنْ كَلَامِ النُّبُوَّةِ إِذَا لَمْ تَسْتَحْيِ فَاصْنَعْ مَا شِئْتَ
“Verily, from what was learnt by the people from the speech of the earliest prophecy is: If you feel no shame, then do as you wish.” [Al-Bukhari]
