Muslims are not a monolith. The belief system you talk about has always been like this. There are literalists and there contexulists and they have been existing since centuries.Hindus are dying in Bangladesh at the hands Islamic fundamentals and Pakistani members here are cracking jokes, it seems kafirs don't require Muslim sympathy, also you can't even pray for their wellbeing.
The agression being meted out on a minority is very evident, these kind of incidents forces a reasonable Muslim to doubt his beilef systems.. Are his beliefs hijacked by radical fundamentals??
