You might be a Christian, Jew or Hindu, but for the following example let’s consider you are a Christian and construct a simple summary of Christianity.
Let’s say Christians follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. Now for our example let’s take three of his teachings and say they are the core of Christianity, Let’s say; Compassion, peace and charity.
Now imagine a gang of hoodlums came and converted to Christianity, Imagine they are sons of rich and influential families and they don’t care so much for the three rules of Christ but instead try to find loopholes in the bible and then construct their own creed and name themselves “Ass-kickers for Christ” and start pillaging, warring and suing chaos. They make their own churches and places of assembly and beat up anyone that goes to churches not owned by them. They get a lot of media coverage and due to their active effort to sideline the actual Christians, the actual Christians are so obscured that whenever someone tells another that he/she is a Christian people say, “Ahhh so you are one of those ass kicker guys”.
Now the entire world thinks that Christianity stands for; warring, pillaging and chaos.
If anyone of the actual Christians tries to defend their values they are forced by the asskickers to shut up, if they don’t then they are declared heretics and liable to be killed by any asskicker who can manage it.
That is how my religion got hijacked.
I am a Muslim.
I hope this post helps you to understand our true struggle ,We are in a constant JIHAD against the ass kickers while the ass kickers call their chaos JIHAD.
(Just substitute Christianity for Islam, hazrat Issa ‘Jesus’ AS for Hazrat Muhammad PBUH, and Asskickers for Saudi oil princes and Wahabism).
