Some of our media is also using the term ‘Islamist Militants’ coined by the West. It amounts to linking Islam with militancy. This is an important factor in creating hatred for Muslims in the West.

Both media and government should avoid using this term, and also try to convince the West that militancy has nothing to do with any religion and using name of religion to identify militants glorifies them. Let militants be identified by their groups or locations.
