Content forks[edit]

Rape jihad and Anal jihad have been added to the article by User:Bryce Carmony. Can you please explain why you are adding these here? You know that these are Fringe, Content forks and a lot of other things which means they should not be here. Feel free to explain why should be included , even when one of the two is up for deletionFreeatlastChitchat (talk) 11:05, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

Sexual jihad is listed and Rape jihad would be something of interest a reader would look for who is reading an article Jihad I personally think we should merge Rape and anal jihad into sexual jihad or possible name a new article Sexuality in jihad but the way we improve articles is by linking them so readers and editors read from one to the next. Bryce Carmony (talk) 11:09, 6 April 2015 (UTC)
The natural and non POV agenda based way is to mention these in sexual jihad and as sexual jihad is linked here there is no need to link these two seperately. I have added them to [Sexual Jihad]] and that is linked here FreeatlastChitchat (talk) 11:12, 6 April 2015 (UTC)

What counts as a colonial war?[edit]

The fulani war is listed as an anticolonial war. But it involved no colonial powers? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thermocycler (talkcontribs) 22:58, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

Representation of meaning of jihad as "Holy War" in second paragraph.[edit]

Firstly forgive me if I have not done this properly, new to this.

The article states " Jihad is often translated as "Holy War",[10][11][12] although this term is controversial"

I believe it should state something more along the lines of "Jihad is often misinterpreted as "Holy War" and this term is controversial".

The citations linked (especially the news article) don't actually translate it as Holy War (as they are not scholarly) merely just call it that. Jihad is not Holy War and in that context I do not think translation is the right word as it suggests actual scholars translate it as Holy War. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.45.183.234 (talk) 12:44, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

The wiki entry for jihad seems different from my original reading. I had begun to suspect that wikipedia might be forum for anti muslim propoganda.

Your comment is certainly making a very careful distinction bases in the truthful meaning of the word.

Keep up the good work. DHorse1 (talk) 15:18, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

An issue.[edit]

It is stated: "Of the 199 references to jihad in perhaps the most standard collection of hadith — Bukhari — all assume that jihad means warfare."

This is utterly false. Here's one example. — Preceding unsigned comment added by HakimPhilo (talkcontribs) 13:55, 8 June 2015 (UTC)
