When something bad happens, an attack or shooting, the first blame would be on the Muslims. Without even looking at the facts, people just assume, this had to be the work of an Islamic terror group. The only thing is, they’re right. Not saying all Muslims are terrorists, but of course the ones who are, keep the religion high on the hatred list.
And we Muslims always wonder why we’re hated.
It’s because of idiots like these who carry on the name of terror.
A nightclub in Orlando was terrorized with 50 people dead on scene as 53 others are still in critical condition. Why? Because one person hated gays. Omar Mateen, 29, a security guard for a Florida court, who was actually licensed to bear arms, also bought rifles to shoot up a gay nightclub. Mateen’s father said it had nothing to do with religion. Not only was he homophobic, but he was also a Muslim. Coincidence, isn’t it? But does that really justify the fact that he killed 50 people? And of course the news will dig deeper into this. Mateen was also in an Islamic terrorist alliance. Again, not really a coincidence. This was definitely known as a terror attack, as it should be. But terrorizing in the name of Islam is just causing more uproar than trying to even the odds.
No matter how much we try to show that we’re not all bad, someone has to go and ruin our name. We can try our best to be the best out there, but because of people like him, Muslims are looked down upon.
There are many people out there who are homophobic and against LGBT, but they’re not going out taking innocent lives. Gay or not, a life is a life. We’re all entitled to our own choices and we’re definitely not in charge of who we like. Every life matters, no matter the race, religion, or sexual orientation.
Blowing out someone else’s candle won’t make yours shine any brighter.
RIP to all the innocent victims who lost their lives in the shooting. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un. (We surely belong to God (Allah), and to Him we shall return). May your souls rest in peace. ♥
