In Pakistan, a December 16 militant attack on a
school that killed 150 people, mostly children, stunned
the country. It made many Pakistanis question any
empathy they felt in the past toward militant groups
---the attitude of "even if they re wrong, they re still
"Now I hear more people talking openly against
extremism and militancy," said Hasan-Askari Rizvi,
an independent political analyst in Pakistan.
When people ask "why Islam?" much of the answer
has little to do with the religion itself.
The Arab world has seen decades of bloodshed and
foreign intervention unlike any in any other region---
long entrenched dictatorships, regime suppression,
two Iraq wars, the Syrian civil war and Libya s tur-
Those conflicts have stirred up hatreds---against
the US, against the West, against Shiites and other
communities---that rebound back into religion. Some
youth angered by the conflicts find the answers in
the version of "true Islam" touted by extremists like
al-Qaeda and the Islamic State group and promoted
on the Internet.
Those groups tell them Islam requires them to use
violence to defend the faith, then provide whole net-
works to make it easy for them to do so.
Notably, Cherif Kouachi, one of the French brothers
behind the Charlie Hebdo killings, appears to have
been first radicalised by hearing of abuses of Iraqi
inmates by American guards at Abu Ghraib prison.
The attack on Charlie Hebdo prompted condem-
nations from across the Muslim world---and fueled
voices in the West contending that Islam fuels violence.
Social media feeds bristled that insults to other religions
do not tend to spark murders.
That frustrates many Muslims who tire of apol-
ogising for an extremist fringe they view as distorting
their religion. Still, Muslims are also turning inward
for change in the community.
The most prominent call came days before the
attack, when Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-
Sissi gave a speech to Muslim clerics saying inter-
pretations developed over centuries have made the
Muslim world a "source of worry, danger, killing and
destruction in the whole world." He called for a "reli-
gious revolution" to modernise the faith.
The Paris attack added a complication to the debate,
because of the magazine s extremely broad lampooning
of Islam s Prophet Muhammad. Muslims who
denounced the killings were often clearly discomfited
by the content and defended their right to be upset
over cartoons even some Western critics said crossed
In Egypt and Lebanon, political cartoonists published
cartoons expressing solidarity with Charlie Hebdo,
with images of pens standing up to gunmen. (AP)
