(CNN) A splinter group of the Pakistani Taliban has claimed responsibility for a deadly attack on Easter Sunday, saying it intentionally targeted Christians.

The suicide blast in the eastern Pakistan city of Lahore killed at least 67 people, a local government spokesman told CNN.

More than 300 others were injured, police official Haider Ashraf said.

The explosion ripped through the heart of Lahore on Sunday evening, at a time when many families were at the city’s Gulshan Iqbal Park to celebrate the Easter holiday. Many women and children were among the victims.

  1. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ISLAMIC TEACHING TODAY?Islam (al Quran, ) teach ; peace, love, compassion, tolerance, forgiveness, justice for all, equality, human right, liberty and freedom of religion, speech, expression, and prosperity. Islam is mercy for all mankind. QS.21:107.

    Those who follow Islamic teaching correctly, Muslim will be a good Muslim, lovely Muslim, tolerant Muslim, rich Muslim, generous Muslim, treat all people equally, fairly, and the will be rewarded by Allah TWO Paradise. One on earth, second Hereafter. this Muslim will be named a the best Creature on earth.

    Al Quran create peace, happiness and prosperity.

    THE BOOK OF HADITH is not the word of Allah, but men’s word. Those who follow the book of Hadith blindly will go astray and fall into sinful Syrik.
    Extremist Muslim use the book of Hadith to justify to kill innocent people like blasphemer, apostasy, Heresy, gay-lesbian, infidel etc.
    So the book of Hadith create violence, conflict, poverty.

    Millions innocent people around the world have been suffering, displacing and killed by Muslim’s hands. Nauzubillah,
    I am so sad,pity, heartbreaking and embarrassing too.
    We educated Muslim around the world have to speak up to refuse / remove the violent Hadith from the book of Hadith, otherwise Extremist Muslim will continue to kill innocent people.

    Most of Muslim around the world believe in Holy Quran and Hadith.

    I would like to ask Muslim Ahmadiyah;

    Why do Muslim Ahmadiyah believe in Imam Muslim-Bukhari and so on–?
    Whereas Allah never mention these names in Al Quran.
    Allah has warned;
    CHECK OUT YOUR FAITH; YOU MAY FALL INTO SINFUL SYRICK !

    Verily, Allah forgiveth not that partners should be set up with him; but He forgiveth anything, else to whom He pleaseth; to set up partners with Allah is to devise a sin most heinous indeed. QS 4:(48).

    Believe in Allah plus believe in Muslim, and Bukhari = Syrik.
    Believe in Al Quran plus believe in the Book of Hadits = Syrik.

    They associate Allah with Muslim, Bukhari and other narrators are sinful Syrik. In other words, they believe in idols (Imam Muslim, Imam Bukhari, other narrators)

    Allah warned; Do not believe in man, scholar, clerics, but believe in God(Al Quran).

    Do not believe in Imam, leaders beside Allah or Al Quran. As Allah warned; and They have taken their imams and their monks as gods beside Allah,QS 9;31.( such as Imam Muslim, Bukhari, Hanafi, Maliki, Safie, Hurairrah, Osma Bin laden, etc etc )
    
    O humankind,) follow what has been sent down to you from your Lord, and do not follow any masters (idols; ( such as Imam Muslim, Bukhari, Hanafi, Maliki, Safie, Hurairrah, Osma Bin laden, etc etc )) other than Him. Little you heed to advice! (3) How many a town We have destroyed! Our punishment came upon them at night or when they were having a nap at midday. QS 7;(3-4) .

    It has proved in Syria, Iraq, or Middle East, those Muslim who believe in ISIS, Taliban’s scholars in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, etc will be punished and live in disaster or misery or Hell. Nauzubillah.

    These Golden Verses also found in Christianity and Judaism;

    There is no one in this earth who does what is right all the time and never makes a mistake.Ecc.7:20

    It is better to trust in God (His Books),than depend on man.( sch. Muslim )
    It is better to trust in God ( His Books),than depend on human leaders.Psalm 118:8.

    Allah forbidden and cursed if Prophet Muhammad (saw) add anything to His law. Syariah Law or Islamic law.

    That this is verily the word of an honoured messenger; (40) It is not the word of a poet: little it is ye believe! (41) Nor is it the word of a soothsayer: little admonition it is ye receive. (42) (This is) a Message sent down from the Lord of the World. (43) And if the messenger were to invent any sayings in Our name, (44) We should certainly seize him by his right hand, (45) And We should certainly then cut off the artery of his heart: (46) Nor could any of you withhold him (from Our wrath). (47) But verily this is a Message for the Allah-fearing. (48) And We certainly know that there are amongst you those that reject (it) QS 60:(40-49)

    Can Zia, and CS respond my question honestly.?

    This is my opinion and belief base on Holy Book.

    Was Salam–with love
