Selective Grieving! – #IstandwithShariifahYunus
3 days ago, Muslims were killed in a mosque attack in Mubi, Nigeria. Today, it happened in Arish (North Sinai), Egypt. We have seen a few headlines, but where is the mass coverage?
Why isn’t “terror” on screens? Is it because “we” are not the victims? Why do we selectively grieve? – Dr. Craig Considine
Even though we Muslims do not support the actions of ISIS, Boko Haram etc, we are made to apologize for their actions. What evidence do we need again to prove that the media is totally anti-islam?
Stories of crimes against Muslims are being downplayed. Is it surprising that people have to stand with Paris, London when there is a ‘terrorist’ attack but no one seem to care about Syria when what happened in Paris happens everyday in Syria?
The media is silent over Hate Crimes against Muslims. One Kemi Ilori yanked off the Hijab of a Muslimah (Shariifah Yunus). What is the media saying about it? Nothing. Who is talking about it? Who is writing against the hate crime? Read about the hate crime here :
This Kemi Ilori denied immediately! Who cannot play the game of denial? Someone who denied but on her Facebook timeline is a post that calls for learning Swahili as an African instead of Arabic Language.
We are calling on Muslims to day away with the pictures of the Kemi Ilori we know. The face of the culprit is not hidden but we should not post the picture on Social media since she denies. Let us keep writing on this till the end. If she keeps denying, we also cannot say which Kemi Ilori we are writing against.
The case is in court and we need the support of all Muslims (especially those in various media houses) to stand with Shariifah Yunus. By the grace of Allah, Kemi Ilori will regret except she confesses and ask for forgiveness from Sister Shariifah Yunus and all Muslims.
We are not raising tension but doing what is right. It is not the Niqob they hate but Islam hence this is about everyone one of us.
A Kemi Ilori out there wants to hate you for having beards, wants to oppress your daughter for having the Hijab on, your son for holding a copy of the Qur’an. One way or the other, one Kemi Ilori is out there and we are all victims.
Are non-Muslims against this action? Can you be be peaceful enough to join the #IstandwithSheriffahYunus campaign?
Even if she escapes in this world, Allah says;
Surah Al-Burooj, Verse 10:
إِنَّ الَّذِينَ فَتَنُوا الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتِ ثُمَّ لَمْ يَتُوبُوا فَلَهُمْ عَذَابُ جَهَنَّمَ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابُ الْحَرِيقِ
Those who persecute (or draw into temptation) the Believers, men and women, and do not turn in repentance, will have the Penalty of Hell: They will have the Penalty of the Burning Fire.
Please, repost and share. Freedom for one is freedom for all!!!
