Takfiris commit crimes to vilify Islam

Takfiris commit crimes to vilify Islam
World  - Takfiri militants, disguised as Muslims, are committing crimes in different parts of the world in a bid to defame Islam, an analyst tells Press TV in an interview.

“These people (militants)... are committing so many atrocities in the name of Islam, this is like a big Public Relations campaign to smear Islam,” Kevin Barrett told Press TV. 
 
He said Takfiri groups have hired “only the naïve, credulous, often young, excitable Muslims.”

  • Increasingly, the rest of the Muslim community has seen correctly that this is not real Islam,” said Barrett.

He added that the al-Qaeda, claiming to be following Islam, enjoys only a “20 percent approval in the Muslim world.”

The analyst said Muslims have seen “that these Takfiri extremist groups are not real Islam.”

Barrett said the Takfiri groups were created following the “infiltration of the Islamic world by the West during the time of imperialism.”

He said Britain made “common cause with the Wahhabis of Saudi Arabia” to establish Takfiri groups.

Barrett also said Boko Haram Takfiri militants are painting a wrong picture of Islam in Nigeria by banning education.

  • All forms of knowledge and education are not forbidden, they are mandatory in Islam,” he said. “This notion of running around, burning down schools, burning all the books, except for those your own particular narrow sect of Islam says you should read, is absurd and it’s completely unIslamic.”

Boko Haram abducted more than 200 girls from their school in Chibok, northern Nigeria, in mid-April and threatened to sell them as slaves in the market.

The group has claimed responsibility for a number of deadly gun and bomb attacks in various parts of Nigeria since 2009.

  • None of this is part of Islam. This is all a modernist heresy and it’s been encouraged and funded by the enemies of Islam to create these public relations operations like the one in Nigeria today,” said Barrett.

Several regions of Nigeria have been hit by deadly violence in recent years. Over the past four years, violence in the north of Africa’s most populous country has claimed the lives of 3,600 people, including killings by security forces.
