“If Anyone Kills A Person It Would Be As If He Killed All Mankind” – The holy Quran, Surah 5:32
Islam has received a lot of attention in recent years however not the good kind. The acts of radical groups who claim to be Muslim and claim to make sacrifices for the sake of God have dragged the peaceful religion through the mud. It has transgressed into a religion condemned by many across the globe, especially in the west.
There have been horrific terror attacks erupting occasionally in western countries that have led to the rise of a lot of controversy and has further enhanced the negative image of Islam. People across the globe have shown their solidarity with victims of such attacks through multiple methods, the most common being social media. Hashtags have been circulating the internet of #prayforlondon and #prayforparis etc. however it surprises me that countries in the middle east, suffering from terror attacks much worse and much more extravagant are ignored. People turn a blind eye. This goes hand in hand with the manipulation of the media. In the summer of 2016 a harrowing bomb exploded in the central city of Baghdad, the capital of Iraq. It was so large that over 350 people died and many were wiped off the face of the earth due to being burnt alive to the extent where they were either unrecognisable or were burnt to ashes. So let me ask you, who showed solidarity to Iraq then, name me one celebrity who helped raise awareness on such a mass terror attack.
It saddens me to see people falsely convicting Islam and claiming shocking accusations of the religion as well as the prophet which is slowly becoming more acceptable therefore resulting in the rise of racist culture.
Let me sum this up quickly: The USA and The UK intervened in middle eastern war, they increased division between Muslims and made the situation nothing but worse. This war drove inhabitants in the middle east to the west to seek asylum in order to live in safety. And now those Muslims living in the west are facing harsh racism and hatred and being driven out. So let me ask you, Where are they supposed to go? Back to the countries your leaders destroyed and risking their lives?
Lastly, is it not surprising that with every new American president there is a rise to a new terrorist group?
THINK ABOUT THIS. STOP BEING IGNORANT. STOP SLATING ISLAM WHILST BEING COMPLETELY UNEDUCATED AND OBLIVIOUS TO THE TRUE PEACEFUL TEACHINGS OF THE RELIGION.
