      killing people is not allowed in Islam. your have to read this article... https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/islam-muslim-terrorism-islamist-extremism-quran-teaching-violence-meaning-prophet-muhammed-a7676246.html https://www.dawateislami.net/medialibrary/44410
  • Like any religion, different people interpret its messages in vastly different ways. The Quran says not to coerce religious beliefs (2:256 and 109:1-6), but it also says to kill people who persecute or attack them (2:190-191), whereas Christianity (the other dominant world religion) says to "turn the other cheek." Again, I think that the propensity for violence is steeped heavily in pre-islamic middle eastern culture. Typical traditional Muslims in places like Malaysia, Pakistan, and Indonesia tend to be much less violent than the bulk of Muslims in violent places like North Africa and the gulf of Aiden. From a common sense perspective, religion is a product of culture, so a violent culture will create a violent religion.

      The Crusades and Inquisitions were heavily steeped in religious cloaks even though "Thou shall not kill" is as basic a rule as it gets.

      extremist can be in any religion; jews, hindus, christian or Islam. we can not relate it to any one religion.

      The Crusades and Inquisitions were as much or more to do with politics than with religion. Those were more violent times in Europe. People in the USA don't typically see Shinto as a violent religion, but things were different during WWII. Or what about the Bosnian War, where Muslim Bosnians were being persecuted by Christian Serbs? No? I don't blame you - it wasn't really reported in the media as a religious thing.
