Jihad, crusade, and bolidan carry same weight, meaning and intention in Islam, Christianity and Hindu religions respectively. The application or misuse of jihad, crusade, and bolidan can be traced thorough out history. However jihad is the most feared word in our century! Do we know why?
To protect one’s family and country one can fight and die honorably according to the principle and procedure of jihad, crusade, and bolidan. However no one is allowed to use jihad, crusade, and bolidan to rob or rape anyone and invade/pillage other people's countries. For example, the illegal and immoral invasion of Iraq is not a crusade. Similarly, invasion of Afghanistan based on the corporate American pipeline dream is not a crusade too.
