Jihad الجھاد

Jihad is "to strive, to struggle", it could be against 'selfish, evil desires' or against 'oppression' , tyranny, injustice' but killing, beheading of innocent people is not Jihad. It is against teachings of Islam. It is an old practice in history to use religion to justify wars for political gains. USA used Jihad in Afghanistan in 80s against USSR. The practice continues in Middle East and elsewhere.
