What do you think of the word terrorist? what image crops into your mind? Something along the lines of a man, with a beard, dark skin, angry complexion with a weapon and possibly kissing the Qur’an. Would I be accurate?
This is because the Media and The government of the Western countries promotes Islamophobia. They convince you to believe that there is a Muslim V non Muslim war which does not exist.
Terrorists aim is to ‘create terror.’ Humankind has to stand together and realise that this minority of people are radicalized and need psychiatric help more than anything else. They are not Muslim, they do not follow our faith, they do not represent Islam in any way and if Islam promoted terrorism or murder of any kind and considering there are 1.7 Billion Muslims around the world – there would be a lot higher deaths reported.
As humans, we should have empathy for one another… “if any one killed a person, it would be as if he killed the whole of mankind” Surah 5 Verse 32; Holy Qur’an. When the Parisian people were attacked, the world united and Facebook was full of French Flags in support. The same people who attacked Paris also attacked half the Middle East but the same moral conduct isn’t displayed for those victims. #SelectiveOutrage. It’s not about making small changes to save humanity it’s about humanity; all lives matter; we are all victims and will be affected in different ways.
In 2015 alone, US dropped 23, 144 bombs on muslim-majority countries. The current death toll in Syria is 250,000 including 30,000 children. Let that sink in.
There are 6 Million Muslims in France. If even 1% of those were ‘Radical Terrorists‘ that would mean 60,000 attacking Paris. If one tenth of 1 percent were radical maniacs, that would be 6,000 terrorists. The fact is there is a handful of radical scumbags who are the lowest of society out of a Muslim population of 1.6 Billion people i.e 0.0000001%.
The same thing in America, 12 million Muslims live in America, you can do the Maths…
I’m from Britian and I’m Muslim. Not all Muslims are from the Middle East. Infact 1 Billion are from Asia. Similarly, not all Muslims are Arab. Considering an Arab is one who speaks Arabic, this means only 21% of Muslims worldwide, fall into this category.
And NOT ALL MUSLIMS ARE TERRORISTS!
If someone in your family committed a crime, should you be blamed also because they are related to you?
If someone with the same Nationality as you killed someone, should you be held responsible?
If a Christian starts quoting the Bible and then gets radicalized and murders innocent people from another country, should you be to blame because you’re Christian?
Stop blaming the majority for what the minority (0.0000001%) do to others.
My advice? If you are scared of Islam/Muslim people then get to know some. You will see that 1.6 billion Muslims in this world are good people who only care about making sandwiches and getting their kids to school on time and praying to God. It’s really as simple as that and there is nothing corrupt in our faith. I know first hand.
Pray for Paris, Pray for Syria, Pray for Egypt, Pray for Lebanon and Pray for Japan. There are lots of tragedies in the world right now and we are all affected whatever your religious beliefs.
There is no Racism in Islam. All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action. – Prophet Muhammad Sall Allāhu ʿalay-hi wa-sallam.
