A Muslim Speaking

There have been dreadful events lately. People are being killed for no apparent reasons. And, the fingers are pointed to Muslims (as the persons) and Islam (as the religion). All Muslims must be responsible for these actions. Since no Muslims are voicing their disapproval, then Muslims are supporting those actions. That's the message that I read in many news forums. Over and over again.

And here I am. A Muslim. Confused.

In my mind there is a clear message. No decent human would approve terrible actions done by those people.

Note that I use the term "human" because it has nothing to do with religion, race, or whatever. We, human. All of us. (I always think about "human vs. nature" or "human vs. robots".)

This (the disapproval) is so obvious to me that I think I (or Muslims) don't need to say it explicitly. It's as true as motherhood.

Unfortunately, in this information age, people are too lazy to seek, read, think, and understand this. People want to be spoon fed. You have to say the obvious thing. Well, you got it.

I do not support terror actions. I condemn those actions. Let's live in peace and harmony.
