  1. They taught that by hurting innocent people, they are pleasing Allah and fighting for their right. Why do they have leaders? Why do their leaders folded their hand, doing nothing to reign their people? The world also back terrorism. If not they supposed to come out categorically that violence is not part of settlement.
