Punish a Muslim Day By Bashir Lucas Samson Lukman
Days ago, letters encouraging recipients to take part in “Punish a Muslim Day” have reportedly been sent across the UK. Mama UK which monitors anti-Muslim activities in the country says it has received reports of people living in Bradford, Leicester, London, Cardiff and Sheffield getting the letters. The letter reads;
“PUNISH a MUSLIM day – 3rd April 2018
They have hurt you, they have made your loved ones suffer. They have caused you pain and heartache. What are you going to do about it? Are you a ‘sheep’ like the vast majority of the population? Sheep follow orders and are easily led, they are allowing the white majority nations of Europe and North America to become overrun by those who would like nothing more than do us harm and turn our democracies into Sharia led police states. Only you can help turn this thing around, only you have the power. Do not be a sheep!
There will be rewards based on action taken. These are as follows:
10 points – Verbally abuse a Muslim
25 points – Pull the head-scarf of a Muslim ‘woman’
50 points – Throw acid in face of a Muslim
100 points – Beat up a Muslim
250 points – Torture a Muslim using electrocution, skinning use of a rack
500 – Butcher a Muslim using gun, knife, vehicle or otherwise
1000 points – Burn or bomb a mosque
2500 points – Nuke Mecca

Obviously, this letter is a propaganda against Muslims just to incite hatred. The fact that Islamophobia exists is no longer debatable. To put things straight, I think those who came up with this letter are deliberately ignorant or just misinformed. They wrote,
“They have hurt you, they have made your loved ones suffer. They have caused you pain and heartache. What are you going to do about it?”
Accusing Muslims of these is fallacious. Muslims had no hand in WWI and WWII. When the church in England was killing people and burning them at stake, how did Islam contribute? Do these people even know the definition of hurt, suffering, pain and heartache? I think they need to revisit Iraq Invasion of 2003 to know what it is to see a loved one suffering.
They need to ask the definition of pain from the orphan of Gaza, the deformed of Iraq, the violated of Afghanistan, the bombarded of Pakistan, the tyrannized of Kashmir, let them go from Syria to Yemen to know those needing freedom. it is these people who blame Islam for the activities of terror groups like ISIS, AL-QAEDA, BOKO HARAM etc but since these letters have been in circulation, there is no single statement from these terror groups warning them against it making one think if they actually serve the interest of Muslims, worthy to note that Muslims have suffered more from their terror than non-Muslims.
In an effort to diffuse the racial and religious tension, people on Twitter suggested Love a Muslim Day as an alternative to the hate crime. However, Love a Muslim Day as an alternative to Punish a Muslim Day has got the wrong idea. Read from Faima Bakar:
According to BBC, the letters are being probed by terror police and we hope they do better to secure the lives of people and prevent a day that would lead to more hatred and killings. We have had enough. It is this hatred that has created terrorists, are we going to breed more? Had they left Iraq, Afghanistan and others, would these terror groups exist? We hope the Punish a Muslim day is stopped as no one can predict what would follow. We all know it is okay for hundred Muslim Arabs to die but when one white non-Muslims die, we begin to shout terrorist attack.
Muslims in the UK are urged to be careful. who knows if where the letters were sent to are just mere distractions. Allah’s aid is sought!
