Indian Muslim leaders are doing right!

The bodies of the killed terrorists at Mumbai are not welcomed in Muslim's cemetery. I think these religious leaders are doing right. I believe that the way to counter religion-related terrorism is not by bombing their headquarters but by, ironically, religious catechism.

The Indian Muslims' rejection of these bodies is a public condemnation on these terror. The condemnation amounts to something like, "You think you are going to heaven by blowing people up? You are God-damned wrong!" Hence on another level, this is a public catechism.

"We do not want the bodies of people who have committed an act of terrorism to be buried in our cemeteries... These terrorists are a black spot on our religion, we will very sternly protest the burial of these terrorists in our cemetery," as reported in BBC News.

These leaders are to be applauded.

And to the governments around the world that think that terrorism can be countered by armies and weapons: think again.
