A Tale of Two Soldiers

Abdul Waheed Majeed’s martyrdom operation where he freed hundreds of Muslim prisoners in Aleppo is condemned by Britain as ‘terrorism’. Yet there are many examples of British soldiers who undertook suicidal missions during WWII and they are labelled as heroes and receive the highest praise. One such example is James Conway, a British marine who undertook a suicide mission against the Nazis in WWII.

Britain therefore has no problem with suicide missions if they fulfil western interests. If they are performed for Islamic interests then they are terrorism.

 وَلَوْلَا دَفْعُ اللَّهِ النَّاسَ بَعْضَهُمْ بِبَعْضٍ لَهُدِّمَتْ صَوَامِعُ وَبِيَعٌ وَصَلَوَاتٌ وَمَسَاجِدُ يُذْكَرُ فِيهَا اسْمُ اللَّهِ كَثِيرًا ۗ وَلَيَنْصُرَنَّ اللَّهُ مَنْ يَنْصُرُهُ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَقَوِيٌّ عَزِيزٌ

“If Allah had not driven some people back by means of others, monasteries, churches, synagogues and mosques, where Allah’s name is mentioned much, would have been pulled down and destroyed. Allah will certainly help those who help Him – Allah is All-Strong, Almighty”

(Al-Hajj, 22: 40)
