Whilst it is difficult, relatively it would be easier to wean off the evil ideology of Islam that drive those evil acts.
I don't think islam is the root. This sort of angry-mob behavior has existed through all times and places.
The Christians used to burn people on the stake for blasphemy. If they admitted their blasphemy, they were given a quicker death by strangulation (still slow and painful), if they didn't they were burnt alive (even slower and more painful).
It doesn't matter which religion people adhere to. Even non-believers (atheists) have blood on their hands. Stalin massacred hundreds of millions of innocents, just for the pure sake of fun of it.
The root problem is humanity, humans are naturally evil. I think there is more evil to mankind than good.
In this particular case, Islam and its loads of evil element is the more significant and effective
root, arising from the main proximate roots, i.e.
- 1. DNA/RNA wise ALL humans has the potential to commit evil/violent acts and SOME [appx. 20%] are born with an active tendencies to commit evil acts. These are the evil prone people.
2. Those evil prone people [20%] are easily triggered to commit evil acts when triggered by evil laden elements.
3. A very small % [psychopaths,] commit evil acts without any external triggers/stimuli.
The point is, it is difficult to change the inherent DNA/RNA, thus the most effective solution at present is to control the stimuli that trigger the vulnerables to commit evil and violent acts.
This is why there is censorship of evil and violent laden materials in the media, news, movies, computer games, etc. to avoid influencing vulnerable children and adults.
The problem in this OP case is the authorities do not censor holy texts of Islam that has loads of evil laden element.
An approximate 20% of evil prone Muslims is a pool of 300 million who are vulnerable to be triggered to commit evil/violent acts. The reality of this consequence is so evident and the case in the OP is merely one of them.
Christianity has an overriding pacifist maxim, i.e. love your enemies, love your neighbors, give the other cheek, etc. No true Christians would dare to go against the above maxims, else they will end up in hell.
Thus Christians who commit evil and violent acts are those who did it by the very own inherent evil nature and definitely not by the commands of the Christian God.
It is more obvious with the Buddhism and Jainism which do not has any leading
evil laden elements in their texts.
In general the potential within the human psyche is 51% good and 49% evil.
DNA wise, ALL humans also has an inherent moral function in the brain which is evolving albeit slowly [thus need to be expedited] to inhibit the inherent evil potential inherent from our 'animal' days.
