Since our childhood, everyone of us has been studying Islamiat and the first thing we know about Islam is that it is the religion of peace and humanity. It teaches us to live with harmony and tells us that you cannot be a fine Muslim if any other Muslim gets hurt by you; in any form. Religion is to be purely followed for Allah but not other people. You are answerable to Allah and no one else. So, whenever you show off your feelings towards common people that you are a religious person, it means you are in a showoff purpose and doing it to be noble in front of people but not your Creator.
Islam is already facing an extremely bad reputation in the world and in turn, Muslims are facing hate and blamed them to be terrorists because ultimately they follow Islam. Although, it is quite easy to blame a religion for someone’s bad doings and specially by those who use the name of religion to make everything wrong but it is never the religion which is wrong and teaches people to do wrong.
“Fight in the way of Allah those who fight you but do not transgress. Indeed. Allah does not like transgressors.” [2:190]
At another place Allah says:
“…To each of you We prescribed a law and a method. Had Allah willed, He would have made you one nation [united in religion], but [He intended] to test you in what He has given you; so race to [all that is] good. To Allah is your return all together, and He will [then] inform you concerning that over which you used to differ.“ [5:48]
Hazrat Muhammad ﷺ is the Prophet of Allah who was sent to preach the religion of Islam which is the last and complete religion with Muhammad been the last Prophet. Our faiths on Islam are not completed until we love and follow Hazrat Muhammad ﷺ more than our parents, children or any other thing in the world. And we cannot be Muslims unless we admit that Hazrat Muhammad ﷺ is the last prophet of Allah and the Holy Qu’ran is the last Sacred Book. Whenever someone will say anything against his dignity and personality, we will feel that in person and want that person to not be the part of our lives anymore.
When someone talks against our Prophet, he/she hurts us. So, we never want someone to hurt us. A couple of days ago, there was a verdict case of a Christian woman Aasia Bibi who was accused for the crime of talking against our Prophet, nine years ago. She was in jail for those years and now Supreme Court of Pakistan releases her by saying that she is not guilty by every mean. Islam works with witnesses and there were just 3 women who gave their witness and then one of them stepped back. Other two had a major opposition in their statements which was an alarming situation that if someone has not done this why he/she get punished for that. Will not we be answerable in that case.
The SC decision was based on complete Quran-o-Hadith sources and there was a complete decision which was made public including Quran and Hadith references which were made base to release her of the accusation.
Right after the decision was summoned, many of the so-called Molvi parties came into action on roads for the protest against the decision where they started calling every other person who wasn’t on roads are not Muslim and asking to hang Aasia Bibi to death. Instead of being happy that she wasn’t proved guilty of degrading our Prophet, they want to prove that degradation was done one way or other.
The situation didn’t remained the same as these protesters started doing some intolerable stuff. They started burning people’s bikes and cars. Blocked all roads, railway lines, burnt public transport buses. People are stuck on roads or in houses. All business, educational activities stopped. They started destroying people’s properties and shops. And this is not what Islam teaches.
A guy posted in some fb group *dha say airport konsa raasta milay ga* i told him the safest route . After a few mins he replied 'thanks kal aapko ye raasta bhi band miley ga'.
He was a TLP guy #Protest #gamekhelgyaboy

تاریخ گواہ ہے کہ اسلام کو اِتنا نقصان غیر مسلموں نے نہیں پہنچایا جتنا مسلمانوں نےپہنچایا ہے۔

Moreover, if you are thinking that it will ruin the image of Pakistan then don’t worry because it happens in everywhere. Where there some conflict comes up, people protest until unless the protest is peaceful but not this type. Right now, Google employees are out for a walk but that is peaceful.
But for the image of Islam, it is a bad thing as right now the image is in the hands of those who are ruining it. May Allah guide them and make us a proud nation.
And one last thing, I think this could be a golden chance for Dr. Tahir Ul Qadri to come up against those who are doing this stuff in the name of Islam and he could become a hero. But alas, we are lacking such scholars.
