If not now, then when?

By Maskwaith Ahsan;

These are the darkest days and nights for Muslims, and they alone bear the blame. People of other faiths have gone through the same darkness of savagery, but then they accepted responsibility for that darkness within their society, fought back and brought home peace and harmony.

Muslims will have to do the same; the minimum of denial will swallow any ray of hope.

Muslims must accept that it’s Muslims who are committing Muslim genocides, no one else. Finding escapism in conspiracy theories will no longer help, pillow-passing this responsibility to unknown enemies will instead catalyze more massacre.

Muslim societies around the globe no longer have the luxury of time; complicated justifications will simply not cut it anymore. They need to jerk themselves out of denial, fight back and restore sanity within their ranks.

The attempt by Muslim terrorists to destroy the resting place of the last Prophet (pbuh) should be the last straw and the final call for Muslims to wake up and take charge of their destiny. If not now, then when?
