Question and answer
What is the link between religion and terrorism?
Religion which should be a holy place now is accused as being the mastermind behind terrorism. It is experienced also by the recent muslim community. [ The tragedy of 11th September, 12th October in Bali and Jakarta’s JW Marriot Hotel’s bombing has dragged the muslim community into a hard position. Now, many people called as “Muslim activists” by the media are caught by police as suspects behind terrorism. Islam is not a religion of terrorism. But this explanation is unable to reduce the impression that Islam is a terrorist’s net. This ethical-normative argument is true although it hides
many facts behind, not only related to the behavior of religious community, but also related to the religious doctrine. We must admit that several religious doctrines can be used to legitimate terrorism, regardless whether it is right or not. *** Hence, religion’s involvement within terrorism is a problem of interpretation upon a fact. Explanation separating religion from its disciples is the inability of viewing the reality of a religious community’s life which is far of its ethical-normative teaching. The question is this: when should the behaviors of religious disciples be related or distinguished from its disciples? If the good behavior is accepted as part of religion, why is its bad behavior rejected? In social science studies, interrelation between doctrine and its disciples has been an important topic. Taufik Abdullah (1987) might never imagine that terrorism would be a crucial issue in Islam, hence he simply said:”… it’s not a paradox when Islam, as the universal revelation and started from the perfect and eternal doctrine, show itself in diversity painted by the history and social cultural situations of its disciples. Tension between eternal doctrine and manifestation in private and social life is the main factor in the Islamic dynamic. ]
