    and what point was that? now I went through the posts in this Thread and it seems Mr. Iqbal wanted Moderators to change
    ISIL (disambiguation), ISIS (disambiguation), Daish (disambiguation), and Islamic state (disambiguation)
    to "Daesh" or what??

    once I'm at it ... what's the difference between "Daesh" and "Daish" ??

    Yes I realise that but like I said that is not the point here
    Yes so what? I did and that's why I brought the point up but after seeing and thinking it's clear folks do distinguish between the two asking for that point is my right

    Daesh and ISIS is same coin but adding in islamic part is the issue, in the West then it seems like anything that is "islamic" is bad when in fact that is plain false knowing rich islamic history

    Anything something bad happens media through around things like "Muslims or islamic" somehow trying to attach muslim religion to everything and in West this can causes issues obviously in middleast that is not a issue

    It's like saying here in the UK the IRA are Christian Catholics fighting the Protestants but they are known around try world as IRA, so we can stop the separation between Catholics and Protestants

    See this is why you have people saying oh why don't Muslims Condemn ISIS and the attacks they carry out why are Muslims staying quite ? Well why would we ? Cus you can't distinguish between ISIS and Islam ? No, no apologises for someone who is bigoted

    If you keep saying a uninformed person "islamic islamic islamic" then follow it up with attack attack attack then not before long any attack will be automatically linked to Islam, you get my point ? And this is what is happening

    And then you ask the question why I bring this point up

    I mean, for you Mr. Iqbal, would "Daish" by OK, or just "Daesh"?

    Dear Asif, what difference does it make as to what they are called. A pig remain a pig whether you call it a Horse or a Moose.

    If you are more keen as to what they should be called and what would be more politically and historically correct, then the term "KHAWARIJ" would be more correct than DEASH or DAISH or ISIL or ISIS.

    Now i know another round of discussion would be on KHAWARIJ. ;)

    I guess it doesn't make any difference but I just wanted to raise the point just to be sure

    I think we can call them by whatever name we see fit on a personal basis knowing the indifferences or differences for that matter
