In the name of Islam: Why ISIS using Islamic Shadow for terrorist activities?

The so-called Islamic State (IS) has released a video it says shows two men who murdered a priest in France, pledging allegiance to the group. The two men are filmed speaking in Arabic and referring to IS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. One holds a piece of paper on which the IS flag is printed. Fr Jacques Hamel, 86, had his throat cut in the attack on Tuesday at a church in a Normandy suburb. Both attackers were shot dead by police after taking hostages. The video was posted by Amaq news agency, the media arm of IS, which has posted the group’s videos and statements in the past. It has not been verified by French police. Reports on Tuesday said the men had filmed the attack, but it is not clear where the video posted by Amaq was recorded. This is not the first time ISIS has supported or carried out attacks against Christians as they have been the target of ISIS atrocities in Iraq for the most part. And while ISIS’ claims for responsibility in attacks on other countries may not be backed by solid links between ISIS and the perpetrators, it would not be unreasonable to suggest that this wave of terrorism has behind it inspiration from calls for “jihad” by ISIS. Terrorist attacks in Europe are on the rise. The attack on Brussels airport, the 2015 Paris attacks, the Nice carnage, and Orlando shooting to name some, have left the continent in a state of fear and paranoia. The presence of enemies both within and without has initiated a debate over the dialectic of violence that is giving rise to these attacks. The perpetrators are not simply militant Islamic extremists, as the Munich attack was a clear case of racial targeting and far rightist bigotry, which had a link with a similar attack in Norway five years ago. The fact that these two polarised camps, that of the far right and militant Islam, are manifesting their violent tendencies through the same barbaric means calls for a nuanced approach towards the issue, which shuns the binaries that these militants themselves create. Labelling entire Muslim communities as bigots and terrorist is falling for the trap of these terrorists as they wish to create a world that is divided along their own supposed binaries. Amidst all this it must not be forgotten that Muslims are the biggest targets of terrorist attacks throughout the world. This is no surprise since radical Islamic terrorist organisations operate in a dialectic of purification in which all those deviating from their supposed “true” teachings of Islam are declared infidels and thereby deserving death. The recent attack in Kabul, which left around 80 dead and more than 30 wounded, is an example of the scale at which Muslims are the victims of terrorism. All these terrorist attacks need the most vociferous condemnation from the Muslim world so that the narrative of terrorism can be effectively countered. For this Muslim clergy would have to come forward and denounce terrorism in all its forms, and distance Islam from these barbaric acts. It must be realised that this religious space that the terrorist have taken over needs to be reclaimed by peaceful Muslims so that the world can be rid of this menace.
