The Islamic Jihadists involved in fighting for ISIS in Syria are in no way indicative of Islam.
I am not Islamic myself and there is one basic reason for that – my dad is the world’s most devout Hindu.
However for 55 years his best friend was the world’s most devout Muslim – uncle Azam.
When it was Eid, my Dad would always go and celebrate with Uncle Azam.
When it was Holi or Diwali Uncle Azam would always come over and for 55 years they were the closest of friends, so I can’t see any reason why other Hindus and Muslims can’t get on.
Nowhere in the Koran does it tell them to behead anyone. Nowhere in the Koran does it talk about forced marriages, let’s think about it… grooming, honour killings, holy wars, or harming any other person.
In fact in the Koran women must be given respect and given their rights.
All these things you see in the media about Islamic terrorist, they are not Islamic terrorist, they are just terrorists. It’s as simple as that.
I am quite proud to say I have some very good Islamic friends.
So please don’t think that these people are in any way indicative of Islam, they are not.
I am what you call a second generation Asian. In other words I was born and bred in the UK.
I am about as English as anyone else here but these people you see on TV who you see in the press are in no way indicative of Islam.
I can assure you the majority of Islamic people, and I am talking in excess of 99.9 per cent of them are very decent law-abiding people and they will abhor the beliefs of this very tiny minority who give them a really bad name.
