Maulana Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi (1903-1979), founder of Pakistan’s radical Jamaat-i-Islami promoted Jihad against non-Muslims. “The whole world should be ruled by Islamic Sharia law, and Muslims should not copy any Western ways of life,” he said.
Abul Ala Maududi further affirms that:
“Islam wishes to destroy all States and Governments anywhere on the face of the earth, which are opposed to the ideology and programme of Islam regardless of the country or the Nation which rules it.”
He also unashamedly adds:
“In reality, Islam is a revolutionary ideology and programme which seeks to alter the social order of the whole world and rebuild it in conformity with its (Islam’s) own tenets and ideals.”
Radicals around the world are determined to carry out their leader’s directive.
