Stirring racism very dangerous

FOR generations we have been plagued by sectarianism and the recent election results show most people still vote tribally, thinking in terms of "them" and "us".

Now racism is worsening. Tensions are heightened when racial hatred is stirred by public pronouncements from those who do not understand the Muslim religion. To denigrate a whole religious faith over the extremism of a small minority is unjust and could have serious consequences.
