In the previous article, we studied the various similarities between the concepts of worship in Islam and in Hinduism as mentioned in their respective scriptures. We shall also examine certain similarities in the teachings of the scriptures of Hinduism and Islam. Non-Muslims as well as Muslims think that any war fought by any Muslim for whatever purpose, be it good or bad, is Jihad.
For example. It also means to strive to make the society better. It also includes the right to fight in self-defence or to fight in the battlefield against oppression and against aggression. Jihad fi Sabilillah.
Only one of the several forms of Jihad is fighting There are different types of Jihad i. One of the types is striving is fighting in the battlefield against oppression and tyranny. The first few verses of Surah Tawbah before verse 5 speak about the peace treaty between the Muslims and Muskhriks polytheists of Makkah. This peace treaty was unilaterally broken by the Mushriks of Makkah. In verse no. This verse is revealed and instructs the Muslims to fight in the battlefield and kill the enemy wherever you find them.
Any logical person will realize that verse 6 has the reply to his allegation. Now will someone ask Mr. Arun Shourie why did he deliberately not quote verse 6? Jihad i. Fighting prescribed in the Bhagavad Gita too All the major religions of the world have prescribed fighting, at sometime or the other, especially in self-defence or for fighting against oppression.
Mahabharata is an epic and sacred Scripture of the Hindus, which mainly deals with a fight between the cousins, the Pandavas and the Kauravas. In the battlefield Arjun prefers not to fight and be killed rather than having his conscience burdened with the killing of his relatives.
At this moment, Krishna advises Arjun in the battlefield and this advice is contained in the Bhagvad Gita. There are several verses in the Bhagvad Gita where Krishna advises Arjun to fight and kill the enemies even though they are his relatives.
Krishna further replies in Bhagvad Gita Chapter 2 Verse 2, 3 2. They are not at all befitting a man who knows the progressive values of life. They lead not to higher planets but to infamy. It does not become you. Give up such petty weakness of heart and arise, O chastiser of the enemy! Give up this degrading Impotence and weakness of heart and arise, O defeater of enemy. Krishna further says in Bhagvad Gita Chapter 2 verse Imagine if someone were to say that the Bhagvad Gita encourages the killing of the family members to attain paradise, without quoting the context — such a deliberate attempt will be devilish.
But within the context if I say that for truth and justice fighting against the evil is compulsory, even if it be against your relatives, it makes sense.
The only possibility I can think of is that they themselves have not read their sacred scriptures such as the Bhagavad Gita, Mahabharata and the Vedas.

Lectures on Islam have been presented by Naik and twenty other Islamic speakers. He said Naik was a "hate-monger", and that his views did not deserve a public platform.
