The Shooting that Happened in Christchurch, New Zealand, at Al Noor and Linwood Mosques was not about Religion, it was sheer inhumanity – Sanusi Yahuza, Esq

Spread the love

All humans should cherish and guard the life of one another. It’s only mad humans who laugh at the suffering of others. Did I not make sense?

Basically, to kill at any religious place be it a Church, Mosque, any Shrine or Temple — is an act of inhumanity, immorality, illegality and a disdain to entire setting or essence behind the creation of man. Thus, of all the gods that live and that have ever lived, none of them has ever preached men to be so nefarious to fellow humans unless that god has gotten her origin from a ludicrous devil. Meanwhile, the essence of existing is for man to serve that One Inventor and at the same time to love all those humans and other living creatures around him.

On the mass killing at the Al Noor Mosque and Linwood Mosque by a 28 years old Brenton Harrison Tarrant,  many people are actually sad as some people are busy applauding the terrorist, going by assorted social media comments. However, this I know might be the upshot of diverse religions or simply put how strong one’s religious belief is.

Obviously, looking at what has already happened, a Muslim might dread some Christians only because the purported killer has happened to be an anti-Islamist… But, that is actually wrong and so pointless. Now, considering the said online comments, some Christians, especially the white ones have now happened to be so pretty cheerful only seeing that some Muslims were futilely killed… But that is also wrong and pretty pointless. Well, however, despite all that, one thing I used to tell people is, a true Muslim or a true Christian would never kill any person carrying in mind the Beloved Jesus Christ (PBUH) or the Beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH’s) postulation that:

_‘Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you, this is the essence of all what is taught in the law and the prophets.’_

— Jesus Christ, as reported in Mathew, 7:12

_‘If you show mercy to those who are on the earth, He Who is in the Heaven will show mercy to you.’_

— Prophet Muhammad (SAW), as reported in Sunan al-Tirmidhī 1924

Thus, from the above assertions, everything is not about religion but about compassion. And if any Christian should hate and kill a non Christian; he is not a true Christian, and if any Muslim should hate and kill a non Muslim; he is not a true Muslim. Therefore, should we find ourselves taking pleasure in agony of others, that’s when we should seek intelligence and wisdom to know that that since God has created us together, He did so in order that we should live jointly and that the hate that runs through some irrational people, could never have a right to emanate any love – as it is only love that can bring peace and nonviolent coexistence.

Are we not humans only when we have good manners?

On legal view point, the heinous shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand is an International crime which is targeted at ridiculing jus gentium, an international law, as Article 3 of Universal Declaration of Human Rights goes that: ‘Everyone has a right to life, liberty and security of person.’Therefore, once a person is luckily born as human being, it doesn’t matter that the person is born to be a refugee, migrant or an orphan; but what matters is seen in Article 6 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to wit: ‘Everyone has the right to recognition everywhere as a person before the law.’
