I liked the answer of this German Muslim scholar when he was asked about terrorism and Islam:
He said : Who started the first world war? Muslims? Who started the second world war? Muslims? Who killed about 20 millions Aborigines in Australia? Muslims? Who sent the nuclear bombs of Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Muslims? Who killed more than 100 millions Indians in North America? Muslims? Who killed more than 50 million Indians in South America? Muslims? Who took about 180 million African people as slaves and 88% of them died and were thrown in Atlantic Ocean? Muslims? No , They weren’t Muslims!!! First of all, You have to define terrorism properly. If a non-Muslim does something bad, it is crime. But if a Muslim commits the same, he is a Terrorist. So first remove this double standard, then come to the point!

The aspiration of the Media Review Network is to dispel the myths and stereotypes about Islam and Muslims and to foster bridges of understanding among the diverse people of our country. The Media Review Network believes that Muslim perspectives on issues impacting on South Africans are a prerequisite to a better appreciation of Islam.
