Fault lines in the domain of knowledge have become common features in the contemporary world, be it the domain of intellectual, political or mass media which are bound to develop politics of subterfuge and deception. Such epistemological declines began with the explanation of human consciousness within the water-tight circle of the naturalistic description of Aristotle’s theory of nature, empiricism and experiences. The majority of Western intellectuals, institutions and media have developed a pattern of discussion and conclusions which somehow produce narratives that are circulated worldwide.
Western leaders, media, intelligentsia and their followers were prompt in highlighting the act of terrorism in France, Canada, Austria, Afghanistan and Mozambique, in the last few weeks and their media agencies linked terrorism with Islam. They linked the crimes of individuals to the Muslim community. They failed to condemn the absolute freedom of speech. The response to terrorism extended “institutional extremism” resulting in large-scale humiliations and search operations in Muslim localities in Western Europe. War on terrorism became a common ground in the West, but they remain silent over the violation of the rule of law and political responsibility.
