Society must not demonise Muslims

It was disturbing to read several audacious comments on social media calling for Muslims to leave the country in aggressive, threatening, abusive and offensive tones.

Why should we single Muslims out in everything?

Muslims are human beings.

Many have categorically condemned these dastardly and inhumane attacks.

They remain at the forefront of efforts to combat and defeat international terror.

They are obviously devastated by the few in their midst who twist and distort the teaching of their religious scriptures and many who were present by chance at the time of the London attack rushed to help and save the injured.

Islam is an ocean of compassion and humanity, but a drop of venom can contaminate the whole well.

It is imperative we stand in absolute solidarity in these trying times.
