Last week, I saw a video of people running away from the area where the terrorist act took place.
One of those people running was a woman wearing a hijab.
She was running for her life.
She was running for her life yet some people will say that last week’s terror attack was an act carried out in her religion’s name.
I am fed up of hearing such things.
Every day millions of Muslims go to work and school and live their normal lives. They forget to get petrol on the way home and they help their kids with their homework and they fall asleep midway through a programme and have to watch it all over again. They tread on an upturned plug, have to untangle their headphones and they get crumbs in the butter. They miss work deadlines, get caught out in the rain not wearing a coat and they take their unwell pets to the vets.
They lead normal fucking lives.
Muslims are not terrorists. Muslims are people who believe in Islam.
Terrorists are morons who do not represent a religion.
No more intolerance. No more easy scapegoats. No more fear.
More love, support and unity.
