“Muslims are violent”. “Islam is a barbaric religion”. “Muslims are Terrorists”. These are most commonly heard sentences on social networking sites, blogs and TV debates. Muslims do little to counter these allegations as Muslim voice is muzzled in the ‘Free world’. Who will give platform to a Muslims in this ‘Free world’ where all the platforms are owned by those who are interested in portraying Muslims as killers? Anyone trying to do that finds himself shouted down and silenced. Muslims have been made to believe that whatever the Western and Pro – Western media tells, is true. When non – Muslims commentators claim that “All Muslims are not terrorists but all terrorists are Muslims”, a gloomy silence is observed by those who know that whatever is being claimed is not true. This is unfortunate that world is experiencing the worst kinds of dictatorships at present. This dictatorship is a manifestation of propaganda unleashed the world over against the followers of Islam. Western media outfits and its puppets in the non – Western world have become demons of falsehood. When Hitler claimed that if a lie is spoken quite often, it becomes the truth, he gave a biggest key for the successful propaganda to the world. This false notion, “Muslims are killers” has been converted into the truth by using the same Hitler method by those who play as the worst victims of Nazi Holocaust. So who is following Hitler and his doctrines? It is a paradox that the method of Hitler’s propaganda war is still relevant today and has been adopted by the victims of Hitler’s holocaust in letter and spirit.
It is painful to flip through the pages of history and find that whatever is being said about Muslims and Islam does not hold any ground. It is equally painful that Muslims themselves do not come up with figures of worst genocides with names of architects of those genocides in front of the ‘Free Media’. It may be history but whatever is happening today is all because of the past. Why should these lies against Muslims and Islam be allowed to be replicated endlessly?
It will not help Muslims to stay silent. Remaining silent makes one think that ‘silence is acceptance of the guilt’. But silence here is not the acceptance of guilt but suppression of voice. Will Fox TV or CNN ever allow a Muslim to come out with right figures? It is not any secret that most of the media sells today because of lies which they have been telling the world. Who will follow them if they start showing the true picture to their gullible audience now? Media which created all the hype against Islam and Muslims can’t tell the world that, “ Hold on ! We have been wrong, please hear the truth now”. This will dent their interests and intrigues. Dictatorships of Falsehood through Media is such a potent tool that lot of Muslims have started to accept their imaginary guilt. I being a Muslims, a peaceful one throughout my life am being told that, I am the follower of a violent ‘cult’. I am unable to find my guilt but still I am forced to accept my undone sin. Is not this the worst kinds of tyrannies? When I want to ask them few questions or want to question their claim, I am being told to stay quiet. This is hurting my soul and killing the prospects of peaceful co existence. I then think, “Since I am being considered as a radicalized follower of a violent ‘cult’ without any reason whatsoever, what is the fun of staying peaceful then. ?”
This is what ‘Propaganda Dictators” cash in on, thus get their stories developed and manufactured . It is a continuing manufacturing process. More the propaganda, more stories they get. And Media sells, intrigues become successful, occupations become ‘peace keeping interventions’, and atrocities on innocents become ‘War on Terrorism’. Civilian deaths become ‘inevitable co lateral damage’ and superpowers remain as superpowers at the expense of Innocents and their natural resources.
I believe that these ‘Propaganda Dictators’ are tools of hegemonic powers. But letting them carry on with their propaganda is equally deplorable. We should do our best to counter their offensive with whatever tools available with us. Let us fight them with their own weapons. Let us bust their myths without being hysterical. I want to put some figures before ‘propaganda dictators’ and want them to identify my guilt in these figures. I have compiled an account of some notable genocide which happened in this world since 1900 till 2011. Let us see how many people Muslims have killed in these 111 years and how many humans have been slaughtered by non – Muslims. I hope these figures shall enlighten you. Let us see how barbaric Muslims are and how peaceful non – Muslims are.

Note: (I have not included the figures of people killed in different communal riots in India since 1947 as I could not find reliable figures for it on the net or other sources. But still as per the vague estimates nearly 1.1 million people have died in communal riots in India since 1947. Most of the casualties (85 %) happened during the partition of 1947. About 80 % people killed in these communal riots were Muslims.)
Killed by Non – Muslims:
Nearly 141 Million i.e., more than 14 Crore people.
Killed by Muslims:
Nearly 2.7 Million i.e., 27.5 Lac people.
Non – Muslims have killed 53 times more people than Muslims without wars.
These people were not killed in Wars but were killings during peace. These killings happened as a result of aggression; crack down on uprisings, silencing of political and ideological opponents, crushing of freedom struggles, regional hegemony and ethnic as well as religious cleansing.
Now let me give you figures of Two World Wars fought by Non Muslims with each other:
World War I ( 1914 – 1918) : 37.5 Million people (Three Crore and Seventy Lac)
World War II ( 1939 – 1945) : 55. 5 Million (Five Crore and Fifty Five Lac) including Nuclear
Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (Japan) by President Truman of United States of America. (President Trueman, sounds funny as well as silly).
Total Casualities in Two World Wars : 93 Million i.e., 9 Crore 30 Lac people + unspecified number of people who died due to Hunger, Illness, Poverty and Radiation after these gruesome wars fought by the civilized and peaceful Non Muslims with each other.
Let us forget other wars. Just sum up with this only.
Total people killed by Muslims in 111 Years:
Non – Muslims have killed nearly Hundred times more people than Muslims in the last 111 years and still Muslims are Barbaric.
Open up your eyes and minds and hurl the truth on their faces.
“Waqul jaa alhaqqu wazahaqa albatiluinna albatila kana zahooqa”
And say: “Truth has (now) arrived, and Falsehood perished, for Falsehood is (by its nature) bound to perish.”
