Ghana's Moslems Must Spare A Thought For Victims Of Religious Extremists - And Condemn Terrorism

As the world's mostly-peaceful 1.6 billion Moslems celebrate Eid al-Adha, the barbarism of extremist Islamic groups such as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), Al-Shabab and Boko Haram ought to be condemned by peace-loving individuals worldwide.

ISIL's brutal murder of innocent civilians  captured in the areas where it has been involved in fighting is unspeakable, cowardly and unforgivable.

Their murder of innocents is sinful and abominable - and will earn them a place in hell as sure as day follows night.

In sharp contrast to the bloodthirsty Islamic extremists of the world, Ghana's Moslems have always chosen the path of  peace - and long may it remain so, insha Allah.

They must be commended for the way they have coexisted peacefully with Ghanaians of other faiths over the decades. They are a shining example of religious tolerance to the world at large.

The whole of humankind must unite to fight religious extremists who murder innocents. They represent a clear and present danger to all of humanity. Their horrific crimes against humanity cannot be justified under any circumstances.

 As they celebrate Eid al-Adha today, one hopes that Moslems in Ghana will spare a thought for the victims of religious extremists around the globe - and condemn their brutish co-religionists engaged in terrorism, who murder innocent people,  in the strongest possible terms.
