Why did they do it? and who are they?

a lot of suspects have been arrested in connection with bombing of the sultan park but we havent heard about the reason why we did it. they say the people in custody have confessed to doing it and they have told why they did it but the police still says they can't publisize why they did it yet. they say they can't say yet if and whether the bombing is connected to any organisation yet. but according to news reports all the people arrested do have long beards and are beleived to be following strict islamic fanatic beliefs. and last night they raided a place where a grouop of muslim fanatic uses as a mosques and according to the news report the police took a some IED's. the police havent confirmed this.
why did maldivians want to blow up places?. and why should they target the industry we are so musch depended upoun?. it cannot be linked to any islamic belief cause islam stickly forbids harming others for no reason. and just because they have beards and turbans they cannot be linked to muslims cause islam is not represented by something you wear or how long your beard is.so whatever their beleif is and for what ever reason they did they could be best described as psychos who needs serious psycological help. hmmm

I disagree with your following view -
"it cannot be linked to any islamic belief cause islam stickly forbids harming others for no reason.
The Qur'an:

Sura (2:191-193) - "And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-believers]...and fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah." There is a good case to be made that the overall context of these verses is defensive war, however, there are two worrisome pieces to this passage. The first is that the killing of others is authorized in the event of "persecution." The second is that fighting may persist until "religion is for Allah."

Sura (3:151) - "Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority". This speaks directly of killing Christians, since they believe in the Trinity (ie. what Muhammad incorrectly believed to be 'joining companions to Allah').

Sura (5:33) - "The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement"



Sura (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"

Sura (8:59-60) - "And let not those who disbelieve suppose that they can outstrip (Allah's Purpose). Lo! they cannot escape. Make ready for them all thou canst of (armed) force and of horses tethered, that thereby ye may dismay the enemy of Allah and your enemy."


Sura (9:29) - "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued."

and on and on....
Do not be surprised that those who believe Islam are those committing terrorism ..

Dear Mr. Ibrahim Rasheed,

Could you give the source from where you took the meaning of the verse 2:191-193?

It appears you have only pasted the meaning of only a single verse (2:191) ignoring the previous verses, especially 2:190. The meaning appears to be taken out of context.

My reference:
http://www.usc.edu/dept/MSA/quran/002.qmt.html#002.190

/======/
002.190
YUSUFALI: Fight in the cause of Allah those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for Allah loveth not transgressors.
PICKTHAL: Fight in the way of Allah against those who fight against you, but begin not hostilities. Lo! Allah loveth not aggressors.
SHAKIR: And fight in the way of Allah with those who fight with you, and do not exceed the limits, surely Allah does not love those who exceed the limits.

002.191
YUSUFALI: And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have Turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; but fight them not at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (first) fight you there; but if they fight you, slay them. Such is the reward of those who suppress faith.
PICKTHAL: And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter. And fight not with them at the Inviolable Place of Worship until they first attack you there, but if they attack you (there) then slay them. Such is the reward of disbelievers.
SHAKIR: And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the recompense of the unbelievers.

002.192
YUSUFALI: But if they cease, Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.
PICKTHAL: But if they desist, then lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
SHAKIR: But if they desist, then surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

002.193
YUSUFALI: And fight them on until there is no more Tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in Allah; but if they cease, Let there be no hostility except to those who practise oppression.
PICKTHAL: And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah. But if they desist, then let there be no hostility except against wrong-doers.
SHAKIR: And fight with them until there is no persecution, and religion should be only for Allah, but if they desist, then there should be no hostility except against the oppressors.

Please visit http://www.usc.edu/ for the above.

So, I hope this is enough to remove that verse of your list.

I hope to comment about the other verses later. But the meaning you are portraying is reason enough for people to do their own research.

From your comment:

It should be noted that all those who believe Islam don't do acts of terrorism. It is only a minority who do it. And not all terrorists believe in Islam.

I believe in Islam. I don't know where you got the meaning for those verses but that's not going to make me a terrorist.
