Terrorism Resistance and Islam: A Study of 7/7 London Bombings

Obaidullah Fahad (Author)
Synopsis The study concentrates on the 7/7 London Bombings and the far-reaching consequences upon the Muslim world as well as the west. Most of the Islamophobic writers, journalist, politicians and social activists treated the tragedy as that of 9/11 an excuse to launch afresh a movement to hurt the feelings of Muslims and to flash derogatory remarks against the religion of Islam itself. The book honestly unveils the sharp reactions against GSAVE (Global Struggle Against Violent Extremism) and GWOT (Global War on Terror) made by the unbiased westerners and Indians as well and is understandably critical. Dr. Fahad's attitude towards the ultra-secularist/apologetic Muslims is clearly aggressive. These pseudo-scholars, hiding the truth that bloodshed is always counter-productive offer a good example of cheap opportunism; do not dare to criticise the foreign policy of the west; they instead try their utmost to hijack the discourse on Islam and terrorism as the book analyses. The present work also examines the Islamic justifications of violence. It differentiates between terrorism and resistance in the law perspective and critically evaluates in detail the position of Sayyid Qutb, most popularly known to Muslims as Godfather of Resistance and not the Champion of Terrorism as the west wrongly perceives him.
