I have always been proud of being a Muslimah and not once seen it as a reason to hurt others, As much as it pains me to say this, it is in moments like these that i am pained to be Muslim, pained to be painted with the same brush as these barbaric, inhumane scum that claim to be Muslim,
whatever their mission or cause, this could or should not be tainted as a Muslim or Islamic war or cause, Islam looks down upon and does not condone this kind, or any kind of violence,(because it is a Muslim group it does not mean it is a Muslim thing!)
these “soldiers” find it so easy to commit crimes under the claim of it being righteous and Islamic, but they must certainly be a different kind of Muslim than that I, my Family and the other Muslims i know are.
A religion that preaches calamity, unity, pure cleanliness, humility and peace is being tainted and destroyed by those who knows nothing of what our teachings say,
I know many, many readers are going to ignorantly disagree with me, but that is alright, we tend to fight and disagree with what we have limited knowledge about, that is our natural human instinct.
Yes our views may differ, but i plead and beg with everyone not to blame an entire religion because of the misleading and error ridden way of destructed lost group of subhuman scum claiming to be righteous Muslims.
These individuals did this on their own accord, this is no noble, religious or Jihad inspired violence, it is selfish, cruel and unacceptable, and as a fellow Muslim, I stand up tall and proud, and condemn these actions publicly as many of my fellow brothers and sisters in faith should do!
Our silence right now speaks volumes to the outside world and are just adding fuel to the flame that the world believes is a barbaric murderous culture and religion, all based on the actions of terroristic groups using a religion the world has turned against as their cause and reasoning for violence, disruption and barbaric ways,
Yes, these terrorists claims to be Muslim, but please don’t let this taint the entire Muslim demographic. These terrorists may be Muslim, but not all Muslims are terrorist, don’t let that an entire generation or group suffer and be painted as evil and as coward Muslims because what these extremist do, yes they are evil, coward, barbaric (and the list is endless).
I appeal to the open-minded people that have known Muslims and live with them in peace not to view us any differently for our views, beliefs and dress codes, not all that glitters is gold and not all that is black is tainted.
I stand proud as a Muslim woman ( who admittedly could be a much better person and believer), but no, I do not plan on Bombing the church closest to my home, I do not plan on strapping a bomb to my body and detonating it in a mass gathering of people and I most certainly do not plan on being a wife at home that is oppressed uneducated and have no say about my life, these are traits recently associated with being Muslim, but could not be further from the truth.
It is truly sad how a minority can change the views of the entire world, It is time we as Muslims and up and speak up against not only this massacre of our religion , but against these individuals who claim to be doing this for our religion and fellow Muslims globally...
My fellow Muslims take a stand, let your voice be heard and condemn these heinous acts, its time our voices be heard we have been silent for way to long.
And now let the hate and judgment begin, i know plenty will disagree with me and hate, but that’s ok, as a Muslim I’m used to it by now....
I guess its safe to say let the argument and judgemental views be spewed, shred my views and standpoint to pieces ...it doesn’t change the fact that I am a proud Muslimah and condemn the acts of these scum
