Say: "O people of the Book! come to common terms as between usand you: that we worship none but Allah; that we associate nopartners with Him; that we erect not from among ourselves Lords andpatrons other than Allah."
[Ch 3 verse 64]
Invite (mankind, O Muhammad pbuh) to the Way of your Lord (i.e.Islam) with wisdom (i.e. with the Divine Revelation and the Quran)and fair preaching, and argue with them in a way that is better. Truly,your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His Path, and He isthe Best Aware of those who are guided.
[Ch 16 verse 125]
If one amongst the pagans (disbelievers) ask thee for asylum, grant itto him, so that he may hear the word of Allah; and then escort him towhere he can be secure that is because they are men withoutknowledge.

 ''All Muslims may not be terrorists, but all terrorists areMuslims.'' This comment , frequently heard after theMumbai bomb blasts implies that terrorism is a Muslimspecialty, if not a monopoly. The facts are verydifferent.First, there is nothing new about terrorism. In 1881,anarchists killed the Russian Tsar Alexander II and 21bystanders. In 1901, anarchists killed US PresidentMcKinley as well as King Humbert I of Italy . World War Istarted in 1914 when anarchists killed ArchdukeFerdinand of Austria . These terrorist attacks were notMuslim. Terrorism is generally defined as the killing of civiliansfor political reasons. Going by this definition, the BritishRaj referred to Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azad andmany other Indian freedom fighters as terrorists. Thesewere Hindu and Sikh rather than Muslim.Guerrilla fighters from Mao Zedong to Ho Chi Minh andFidel Castro killed civilians during their revolutionarycampaigns. They too were called terrorists until theytriumphed. Nothing Muslim about them.In Palestine , after World War II, Jewish groups (theHaganah, Irgun and Stern Gang) fought for the creationof a Jewish state, bombing hotels and installations andkilling civilians. The British, who then governed Palestine, rightly called these Jewish groups terrorists. Many of these terrorists later became leaders of independentIsrael - Moshe Dayan, Yitzhak Rabin, Menachem Begin,
 
Ariel Sharon. Ironically, these former terrorists thenlambasted terrorism, applying this label only to Arabsfighting for the very same nationhood that the Jews hadfought for earlier.In Germany in 1968-92, the Baader-Meinhoff Gangkilled dozens, including the head of Treuhand, theGerman privatisation agency. In Italy , the Red Brigadeskidnapped and killed Aldo Moro, former prime minister. The Japanese Red Army was an Asian version of this. Japan was also the home of Aum Shinrikyo, a Buddhistcult that tried to kill thousands in the Tokyo m etrosystem using nerve gas in 1995.In Europe , the Irish Republican Army has been aCatholic terrorist organisation for almost a century.Spain and France face a terrorist challenge from ETA,the Basque terrorist organisation.Africa is ravaged by so much civil war and internalstrife that few people even bother to check which groupscan be labelled terrorist. They stretch across thecontinent. Possibly the most notorious is theLord's Salvation Army in Uganda , a Christian outfit thatuses children as warriors.In Sri Lanka , the Tamil Tigers have long constitutedone of the most vicious and formidable terrorist groupsin the world. They were the first to train children asterrorists. They happen to be Hindus. Suicide bombing iswidely associated with Muslim Palestinians and Iraqis,but the Tamil Tigers were the first to use this tactic on alarge scale. One such suici de bomber assassinated RajivGandhi in 1991.
