The recent attacks in Paris that left over 120 dead has sparked blame on Muslims for the terror attack.
An open call posted on Facebook urging people not to blame Muslims for the Paris terror attacks has gone viral with over 28 thousand likes, 10,000 comments and 26,000 shares.paris-terror-attack-touching-letter-on-dont-blame-muslims-goes-viralLeigh Matthews, from Cardiff, posted his feelings about anti-Muslim sentiments on his Facebook page earlier today, it reads;

Can I just take this opportunity to remind you all that Mr Mohammed from your local shop wasn’t involved in last nights attacks on Paris. Neither was Mrs Azeer from Lloyds Bank or her family. Kamal from down the road has never been to Paris, and his brother Abdul, the taxi driver, was watching the news in horror along with everyone else.
The people behind last night’s attacks weren’t Muslims, they were extremists using religion as vindication for their cowardice.
Please, I urge each and everyone of you, do not lay blame at the doors of the innocent just because of what they believe. They are no more to blame for Paris than you are.
We are one world and one family.
Treat each other as such, because what happened last night should bring us closer together, not make us lash out against our neighbours for a perceived religion affiliation.

Very well written Leigh. Well written.

    The hypocrisy of Nigerians concerning this Paris thing is just heartbreaking. Everyday people die in the North but it’s normal, one day some people die Paris we are all showing fake sympathy. Yes fake sympathy because every life is important. The way we are praying for paris is the same way we ought to take the crisis in the North seriously. May God rest the souls of all those who have died through terrorism? AMEN.

    As much as I agree with Leigh, I can’t also forget the aggressive nature of Muslims believers. They get so aggressive when people go against their beliefs, Muslims never take any blaspheme against prophet Muhammad likely, they start what they call a peaceful protest anytime someone make a joke of their religion.
    Muslims may not be behind the Paris attack, but all the reasons I stated above is one of the causes of this attack. Their are lot of crazy people out their that takes things literally, and can take things to the next level. These so called crazy cowards by Leigh also listen to the same lecture he listened to, but they believe in action unlike those that believe in peaceful protest. They believe they can make more impact by doing this, you know create the fear and respect for their religion, because they’ve been thought by their leaders, that peaceful protest never make an impact and people make fun of them when they protest, and which other way can you take or snatch respect from people than this. This Change the game, and now a lot of media houses have been very careful since the last attack before this one.
    I don’t want Muslims around the world to have misconception about my opinion but the truth is other religions never get as aggressive as Muslims or protest anytime people joke or support their opinion. Those harmless protest they do in the name of religion, is the seed that germinate to this chaos.
    I’ve read so many articles tarnishing Christians, even a documentary on discovery channel that claim, Jesus is not real, even his teaching is said to be made up by scholars, their have been so many science discovery that contradict the time of Jesus, but have you for once seen christian on the streets protesting? They don’t mind anybody, they focus on their beliefs.

    I think it’s high time Muslims leave justice to God and just let sleeping dogs lie anytime someone go against their beliefs. We are in a world filled with laws and freedom of expression, and anyone can express himself as long as they don’t go against the law.

    My bible tells me to be still and be at peace for the Lord is going to fight my battles
    – Exodus 14:14
    If He’s so mighty and can fight the battles I can’t handle myself, who i’m I a mere mortal to fight His war. The Lord doesn’t wants us to fight for him, He’s more than capable to fight His battle in his own way, that will make people believe in Him. It’s we mortal that are always in haste for results, that we leave our duty and start doing God’s work, when he never sent us on the errands.
    I’m sure there are chapters and verses In Quran that’s about Exodus 14:14, so I don’t see the need to protest anytime people are against their beliefs . God Almighty is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, He already knows what the end to any step is, before the beginning, that’s why He’s always careful and weary of His decision, so it doesn’t affect His followers. He loves us to the extent He allowed Jesus to die for our sin, even sent the Prophet muhammad to us to direct our step, this is a sign He feels our pain and He will sort all our problems in due time, in a way it will be favorable for everyone, if we can just be patience.

Their are lot of crazy people out their that takes things literally, and can take things to the next level, just by listening to someone talk about it, those actions can be a trigger, you may not pull the trigger but your words and actions are loaded weapons.
