Post 9/11, Islam got portrayed as a religion of violence
Shuja Nawaz , Director, South Asia Center, Atlantic Council is anxious and sad. The Pakistan-born strategic analyst and author is worried about the huge price people around the world pay everyday due to the 'big fear' that has crept in following the 9/11 attacks.
"Yes, it has left us imprisoned mentally and physically," says the author of works as celebrated as Crossed Swords: Pakistan, Its Army , and The Wars Within and Fata: A Most Dangerous Place. He regrets that the cost of living in cities has multiplied with countries adding new layers of security.
Looking back at the 10 turbulent years after the 9/11 attack , Nawaz says he is saddened by the way Islam has been portrayed as a religion of violence, which, he says, it is not. "9/11 offered a chance for radical extremists in the West to portray Islam as a religion of violence," he notes.

A few words from the Mister Big behind islam:
"So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful." (Sura 9:5)
"Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection." (Sura 9:29)
