Capital shouldn't kill off Snapper

Barbarians hide behind religion

Words can't express the disgust at the Isis and Boko Haram treatment of prisoners and women, or the horror at what happened in the school in Peshawar in Pakistan. As a Muslim, my heart bleeds to see such atrocities being carried out in the name of my religion. The people who belong to Isis or to TTP (Tehrik Taliban Pakistan), or Boko Haram in Nigeria, are not Muslims by any stretch of imagination. They are barbarians hiding under the cloak of religion, butchers slaughtering innocents, carrying out personal agendas of power and control. My only hope is that the misguided souls who actually think that these institutions represent Islam will realise these cowards deserve no understanding, sympathy, support or allegiance.
