There appears to be confusion among Muslim communities over the horrific episode in Woolwich.
A segment of the Muslim communities suggests Muslims ought not to show their feelings of disgust about this cowardly attack. I suggest an alternative view.
Any public condemnation only highlights the feelings of solidarity Muslims hold with the victims and is a show of defiance to the radical ideologists who try to hijack their religion to further their agenda of hatred and division.
