Al-Shabaab, like other similar radical organizations, carry out their bloody attacks for the sake of a supposedly "holy purpose and a supreme ideal," for the sake of a heretical and false ideology that they think is religion. For the sake of an ideology that has no connection to the Qur’an, has no place in the Qur’anic Islam, and is composed of superstitions, fictitious hadiths and bigoted beliefs. The militants are fighting and shedding blood because they think they are right. They believe that religion requires them to act in this way but religion never calls for bloodshed. Religion is the way to invite people to goodness with kind words.
