Murder in the name of false gods

The latest is in Kyrgyzstan

Those worshipping the false god of ethnicity have unleashed a reign of terror which has left more than thousand dead, by eyewitness accounts. More than a 100,000 have taken refuge in neighboring Uzbekistan.

That is not the only place where false gods are being worshipped. The US worships the false god of "our way of life", and thinks that entitles it to wage wars against hapless civilians worldwide.

The Israelis worship the false god who they say gave them the land now called Palestine, and think this gives them the right to blockade , starve and even directly murder those not serving their god. Their god is not YHW, but Israel, or Zionism.

Many Indians (Hindus, Jains, Buddhists and Sikhs) worship a variety of false gods, almost everything under the sun, and most of their own making. Chief among these is being "Bharat Mata", which allows them to call the Muslim state of Kashmir as "an atote ang (unbreakable part) of Bharat Mata". This, of course in their opinion, gives them the right to rule Kashmir militarily.

"My country, my nation, my tribe, my sect, right or wrong", declare the modern-day worshipper of false gods.

Look at the Christians - most of them worship a Prophet of God as God Himself, declaring him as God's son, separate yet part of Him. In addition they have the holy ghost, a partner in the Trinity. Why three gods, why not five?

And this is where the Shia step in. Many of them worship five gods - panjtane paak. The Ismailis have a living god - the Agha Khan.

The Catholics have a multitude of saints to worship). Are Muslims behind? You find shrines to "holy" men and women, where all acts that can be described as acts of worship take place. Where the injunctions of God and His last Prophet (saw) are openly defied.

Then there are gods of secularism - nationalism, ethnicity, class, way of life, money, pursuit of happiness, carnal pursuits, enjoyment - in fact the worship of one's desires, are all false gods.

Giving in to one's desires is one thing, not repenting, making it a way of life, finding excuses, or denying there will ever be a reckoning, is another.

May we all repent and come to the One and Only God.
