Last three decades have been the worst as for as negative projection of Islam is concerned. Globally the US Empire, after the decline of Socialist block, was on the lookout for unhindered control on oil resources. In order to dominate West Asia for the sake of oil wealth, it designed mechanisms to demonize Islam as a cover for political control in the region. These attempts of Empire peaked after the 9/11, 2001 when US media coined the word Islamic terrorism. The political-economic phenomenon leading to terrorism was presented as a religious one. During the same time in India the Hindutva political forces asserted their political assertion by targeting Islam. In nutshell a religion which had come to establish peace in the region came to be presented as religion of violence. Popular perceptions about Islam as religion and its various aspects were so modulated to present them as if the followers of this faith are moving around with bombs and swords.
