I am a Muslim,not ‘THE MUSLIM’

I am writing this blog with a broken heart.The Orlando Incident is very shameful .Before that The Paris Incident was also very heartbreaking.But is this right to judge the whole Muslim nation by these incidents? Wherever we go,people narrow their eyes at us as we are Muslims.One of my friend changed her school and in her new school,she had to face the question for a several times that ‘You are a Muslim?’Every nation has some bad and some good people.So why this difference?

Muslims are blamed every time a terrorist attack is carried out anywhere around the world. Ever since the 9/11 attacks on American soil, the meaning of terrorism has been directly associated with Muslims and Islam.

Following the Paris attacks of November 13 and the San Bernardino shooting in California, bigotry, hatred, discrimination and violence against Muslims has risen to a dangerous level.

However, according to the FBI, there have been more acts of terrorism on American soil perpetrated by Latinos and Jews than by Muslims.

Moreover, Europe has suffered over 1,000 terrorist attacks in the last five years, in which less than 2 percent of the criminals have been Muslims, according to the Huffington Post.

Blaming Islam – an entire religion – for acts of criminals drives a wedge between Muslims and non-Muslims, increasing hatred and violence.

 It’s very sad to hear that ‘Is he the Muslim?’from some horrified voices.
