The Instigator - Poem by macaulay akinbami

I am ignorant yet I seek to know.
Let them tell if this is in the book of their testament
'Now when you meet the unbelievers, smite their necks until you overcome them fully...' (47: 4) .
Bring their scholarly defense and authenticate the inspiration by a Deity
For which we died in 9/1/1
By which war persisted in Pakistan, or heated hatred in the north,
Peradventure, some defender can speak plainly for their lord.
And Lest I forget another,
O you who have attained to faith! Fight against those unbelievers who are near you and let them find you adamant, and know that God is with those who are conscious of Him' (9: 123) .
Again with mouth wide open,
Give me reason to believe that I goof, to imagine a hater of men,
Dishing out instruction to ready “to be” murderers
And many like this,
'O Prophet! Strive hard (lit., make 'jihad') against the unbelievers and the hypocrites and be adamant with them... ' (66: 73) .
This is not a Poem; it is a request to know the instigator of hatred
