Islam and the Genocide Against the Armenians

Western Armenia TV undertakes to maintain objectivity when speaking about Islam and the genocide against Armenians. We note that the views are opposite. It is difficult to justify the contradictions of the young turks and genocidal actions with Islamic provisions, taking into account the different interpretations of the Quran, Sunnah, and Hadiths. In Islam, there are provisions to give special status to certain communities, to be kind to them, to guarantee the safety of their lives.

It is worth quoting passages from several surahs of the Qur'an, such as: "Come, I will recite what your God has forbidden... Do not kill anyone whom Allah forbids, except by right" (Qur'an, 6:152).

According to the principles of Islam, a crime is a crime regardless of how many people are affected.

The examples are numerous, and one can draw a conclusion that Christians or Muslims, reading the same sura or verse of the Quran, can make different interpretations. The linguistic and stylistic flexibility of the Qur'an allows the same sentence or phrase to be discussed from multiple perspectives and to make polar opposite interpretations. this is evidenced by the many thousands of volumes of Quran commentaries that are still in existence.

In this case, we see the dichotomy of Islam. a phenomenon that has always existed in the Islamic society, the ummah. It is about Islam as a religion and Islam as a political phenomenon, or so to speak, political Islam. In order to achieve its political goals, the young turkish government did not avoid manipulating the religious factor.

"Every Muslim, in whatever part of the world he lives, should take a solemn oath that he will kill at least three or four of the Christians around him, because they are the enemies of Allah. Let each one of you know that his reward will be doubled from God."

On November 23 of the same year, a new manifesto was published, which required the Muslims of the world to submit to the requirements of the Koran and protect Islam and its sanctuaries. Religious fanaticism was also used during the implementation of the genocide against the Armenians, when the young turkish government manipulated the factor of religion, and it was done at the state level.
