[28 June 2012] Should Muslims show concern for occupation of Afghanistan during Olympics - Islam And Life - English Contrary to its official mottos, modern Olympic Games have been very much politicized. Governments used it as a propaganda tool for their political ideologies, most notably nationalism. It has been used to propagate Euro centrism, fascism, communism, racial superiority and of course as a marketing and advertising instrument. Anti-racist and human right activists have used it as platform for their ideas. In 1980, to protest Soviet Union's invasion of Afghanistan, more than 60 countries followed the United States to boycott the Moscow Olympic Games. Many Muslim countries joined the boycott, among them Egypt, Turkey, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Pakistan. In a similar way, the host nation of the 2012 London Olympic Games has invaded at least two Muslim countries. It still has military presence in one of the, Afghanistan. This week's Islam and Life asks: Should the world be worried about the emerging "total war ideology" against Islam
