‘Love a Muslim Day’ list in response to hate letter

Source: BBC

The man who created a ‘Love a Muslim Day’ list in response to letters promoting hateful acts hopes his idea will “bring people together”.

It was sparked by reports that ‘Punish a Muslim Day’ letters had been sent out in several cities, calling on people to verbally and physically attack Muslims.

Four MPs from South Asian backgrounds have also received packages containing anti-Muslim letters in recent days.

Shahab Adris, from Leeds, said he was disgusted at the content of the widely-reported letter and had a “brainwave” on Saturday.

“I thought, let’s turn this letter on its head, keep the points system and turn it into something lovely,” he said.

“Some of the responses I’ve seen from the Muslim community have been really positive, but the most remarkable thing has been getting responses from people who are not Muslim, saying they will do something with a Muslim colleague.”

  1. What do you expect from the so called civlised Brits? Native Brits must learn to respect and tolerate those who are different.

    Stop treating foreigners like garbage and they will stop ruining your precious country. Why did you let them in in the first place if you didn’t want them here? They left everything in their countries because of your promises. Are you so anxious to please that you can’t say “no”? I would love to see you go to a foreign land where you don’t have any friends, you don’t even know anyone and you don’t speak the language, and start from scratch.

    The shocking level of targeting of the Muslim community of Birmingham is indicative of the normalisation of the dehumanisation of the Muslims of Britain. Under the pretext of “extremism”, criminal undemocratic and unethical abuse of public institutions and the Muslims of the UK can occur without much accountability. This pervasive attitude, especially amongst officials like Michael Gove needs to change. Our schools are truly trying to develop our children to do well at schools so later in life they are able to stand on their own two feet, but if we stop our schools from doing this than our country will have up rise of unemployment, benefit issues, crime levels high, I think it’s time for you apologize and allow practitioners to do their job right.

    Muslim community in all western countries need Masajid, state funded Muslim schools , Halal meat and Muslim cemeteries. West must learn to respect and tolerate those who are different. Don’t these hypocrites idiots know what their ancestors did to Native American Indians they slaughtered 150 millions of Native American Indians! and also do they know that Great Britain invaded 80% countries around the world? They should call them terrorist first and as well call their ancestors terrorist! British did the same to Native American Indians and sadly they still treat Native American Indians badly! So Americans Indians know how you Muslims feel! They stolen Indian land and killed 150 millions of Indians the British did! They were forced to go to the white man’s school and learn the language, culture and faith of the white man. Inspite of that, they are still the under dogs of the American society.

    The native Brits must learn to respect and tolerate those who are different. You have failed to respect and tolerate Black community, who speaks your language, share your culture and faith. English, Irish, Welsh and Scott hate each other, sharing the same culture, faith and language. It is difficult for you to accept, respect and tolerate Muslims with different culture, languages and FAITH. You have no choice but to accept them for your own survival. The number of Muslims is on the increase because of immigration, high birth rate and conversion. By the end of this century, nearly 50% of British population would be Muslim.

    This paragraph is emotional—not wise at all— it is provocative—you pour fuel to the flame— it is dangerous for all Muslim whi live in the Western countries—
    I suggest Muslim to stop wearing Hijab— close halal restaurant—close halal grocery—close Islamic Bank—etc


    • how many times do we have to hear the same thing? You told us already and we acknowledged your view. Some of us have different views. We appreciate our ladies who wear hijab and we appreciate halal groceries and restaurants.

      • Dear Rafiq— because you respect the halal grocery, halal restaurants and hijab have caused Islamophobia grow and they hate not only who appreciate hijab, halal grocery but also all Muslim who against hijab, halal grocery. All Muslim will be targeted by islamophobia.

        Whereas if you do not do that Allah will forgive you all, because all muslim will be save from islamophobia. Think other Muslim too Rafiq.

        All love ❤️

      • Come on. Lots of Hijab ladies look very feminine and fashionable and modern and everyone, except Somi and a few other radicals, appreciate all of them.

  3. This is a nice way for the Brits to gain some redemption for the fatal attacks on Muslims due to the “ Punish a Muslim” contest. I hope and pray that it spreads like a wild fire and goes viral so good deed take over Britain and people show compassion and gratitude and make new bonds

  4. “Love a Muslim Day”.
    It’s an appreciable effort to promote peace and love among the people of communities And peace is so important In Our lives in recent time.
    I like it ,well done.

  5. The only way peace of the society can be ensured is through acknowledging and respecting diversity. Focussing on differences will create friction in society.
    Love for All, Hatred for None is the only way to live peacefully.
