Islam Has Been Hijacked by Terrorists
Despite its huge following around the world and the growing Muslim communities in the United States, the ways of Islam is unknown to most Americans. Because of the prevalence of Judeo Christianity most Americans know little or nothing about Islam and have many misconceptions about Muslim beliefs and rituals. Islamic concepts of war, human rights and especially the rights of women have been misinterpreted and misrepresented to such an extent that Muslims look very unsophisticated to non-Muslims. Prior to 9/11, Islam was more of a curiosity than a concern; now however, when lives are at stake Muslims should reach out to people and try to portray the real picture of Islam.
Post 9/11 Islam has been hijacked by a fringe group of extremists and a lot of Non-Muslim people think of Islam as being a barbaric and extremely harsh religion. This is an absolute fallacy. I feel it is the responsibility of American Muslims to rectify this.
