Wisdom is being neglected from both side. Analysing cases like this show us one thing, hard-work has to come from the Muslim community and nurture the idea of Wisdom behind any action. The Noble Quran and the path of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم   are the two main sources when studied transform the etiquettes of people into excellence. Yet we cannot not simply forget the bizarre scenery of the malicious joy upon the death of Osama bin laden in America.

Logic tells us both cases are the same depending on how one may perceive the death of the individual’s, and the reasoning behind it. The preference of the parties will create biased view and will determine whose death is a triumph. Deceased Lee Rigby fought in a war believing to be on the right site. The question undoubtedly “who will judge justly those without any strings attached”.Morally we are also looking at Two dimension. Historically people experienced a sense of joy upon the death of people they perceived to be deserving of that punishment. This was demonstrated during the French revolution upon the execution of King Louis XI. The crowd that witnessed the beheading ran forward to dip their handkerchiefs in King Louis’s blood that dripped to the ground.

The historian Jules Michelet argued that the death of the former king would lead to the acceptance of violence as a tool for happiness. He said, “If we accept the proposition that one person can be sacrificed for the happiness of the many, it will soon be demonstrated that two or three or more could also be sacrificed for the happiness of the many. Little by little, we will find reasons for sacrificing the many for the happiness of the many, and we will think it was a bargain.”

Both groups whether they celebrate the death of a solider or the death of a believed terrorist both will have arguments and their justification for it, who really can dismiss one or the other ? A question that we must ask to understand the essence of this battle we seemed to interwoven with our prejudice and misconception. However even in this plot perpetrators and heroes do exist on both sites.

One thought on “Muslim couple accused celebrating death of solider

  1. Islam is pure evil. It’s all about terror, hatred, and the killing of non-believers. All over the world muslims are killing themselves and others, in the name of “allah”, but what God would want his people to do that? NOTHING good has come from islam only death, murder, hatred, and terrorism. You and your religion disgust me to the very core.
