Muslims United For Manchester: The Heartwarming Compassion From The Local Muslim Community

After the Manchester carnage some people were accused of exploiting the news of a terror attack to spread fear and prejudice against ALL Muslims , but the rest of social media praised Muslims for their compassion, support and generosity.

Britain’s local Muslim community ,and Muslim leaders came out in condemnation and solidarity with Manchester City.They condemned the Manchester terror attack ,and have come together to set up a fundraiser - “Muslims United for Manchester” -for the victims and families caught up in the Manchester Arena attack .“Muslims United for Manchester” appears on LaunchGood, a crowdfunding site. The campaign is led by the British Muslim Heritage Centre , and seeks to raise at least $65,000 in short-term aid for the arena-bombing victims and their families.In a statement they said: “We wish to respond to evil with good, as our faith instructs us, and send a powerful message of compassion through action.” As part of their mission statement, the creators were asking for like-minded Muslims, mosques, imams, and community leaders to “endorse and promote” the message, providing a front of support, the sort of outpouring that makes it clear just how much ISIS’s views are universally rejected by Muslims

Harun Khan, the secretary-general of the Muslim Council of Great Britain said: "I urge all those in the region and around the country to pull together to support those affected."He added: 'May the perpetrators face the full weight of justice both in this life and the next.'

I offer my deepest condolences to the victims and their families, we will not forget your loved ones and justice will be served.He added: “We reject this barbaric terrorism, we commit to exposing the evil ideology of violence behind it and stand together with our fellow Mancunians.”

Fears of race hate attacks

Muslims United For Manchester: The Heartwarming Compassion From The Local Muslim Community

Fears of race hate attacks in wake of Manchester concert massacre as arsonists hit mosque within hours of the Manchester Arena suicide bombing. Just a few miles away from the scene of the terrorist attack,a mosque’s door was burned down prompting fears of a race hate attack in retaliation.Somebody started a fire through our letterbox. .Greater Manchester police have warned they won't tolerate hatred Also, the Bishop of Manchester rebuked Twitter trolls and others looking to exploit the terrorist attack to fuel hatred and fear of Muslims in the UK.The reality is we are a diverse society and so the only response can be to unite closer together to remove the gaps where extremism flourishes.

After terrorist attacks we see amplified mass media coverage and extreme unjustified hatred towards ALL Muslims. In reality though, most Muslims condemn violence and voice outrage at such atrocities They express their support of communities affected by a group of radicalized terrorists with their own ideologies , that’s obviously not representative of the values and religion Muslims hold so dear

Islamophobia, the fear of Islam and Muslims, is irrational. The truth is that the number of acts of terrorism committed by radicalized terrorists who are misguided —in violation of clear Quranic texts and established Islamic principles—is only a tiny fraction of the violence committed in the world.It is not based on reality, as statistics from Europe, America, Australia and the world show.

Regardless of the opinions of others , i won't be reduced to hatred towards Muslims or Islam .In the aftermath of the Manchester bombing the world has witnessed the sincere compassion and genuine kindness of Muslims within the local community and worldwide. No rational person can claim, “All Muslims are terrorists!”because this is patently false,and totally unfounded

    This is ridiculous. The reason people comment on Muslim terrorism is because the terrorists are Muslims. For some reason people want to pretend like there's nothing that links these terror attacks, pretend that it's all completely random and that it just happens to be a coincidence that they're Muslim. It's getting desperate now, and it's this complete inability to notice the real threat that is what endangers the people of Europe, and it's the reason this keeps on happening over and over again.

    When people warn that this will happen and predict that it will happen, the left call us bigots. When it happens, and when we say "see? another Muslim terror attack" they say "you don't know whether it's a Muslim yet don't jump to conclusions". When it always turns out to be true, both the prediction and the fact that the terrorist is Muslim, they go "you're just an Islamophobe using this to spread hated, he's not a real Muslim, not lets light some candles, cry, chat some bollocks about solidarity, and carry on as usual". This happens again and again, and these people act shocked as if they don't know why it happens, every single time.

    Now, AJ Singh - how many Muslims wear a Turban? They don't - Sikhs do. He's a Sikh. Those who tell you he's a Muslim are intentionally lying.

    You people want to deny reality and you're so quick to fall for the bullshit. I lived and worked in the area the terrorist came from, and where 16 other ISIS members have come from. There's a very good reason I left.

    Check out this Muslim showing her "love" for Manchester:

    How appropriate, right after a terror attack, face completely covered, wearing pictures of guns and grenades. Openly mocking us. Heartwarming right?

    Here's a guy who said the exact same things you're saying, that people shouldn't be Islamophobic, that it's nothing to do with religion. Here's a tweet from July 2016:

    He was killed in the recent terror attack:

    This is what's happening to people in the West. They're being brainwashed into believing this bullshit and attacking others who just want to prevent this stuff, and in doing so they're endangering themselves, their own people and their own children. This angers me so much.

      They call you bigots because you're being bigoted.

      One of the comments at Martin Hett's tweet: "Lol. This guy was killed in the explosion at the Ariana Grande concert! Deserved it 100%". Nice. The facts remain that ISIS kill more Muslims than Christians, and that the vast majority of Muslims are not terrorists.

      You're right that Mr. Singh is obviously a Sikh, I haven't found another place where he's described as Muslim, but he gets a lot of coverage for being a good human being.

      The woman in the costume? I saw a man dressed as bin Laden outside Buckingham Palace a day or two after the September 11th attacks. Some people are just stupid, and probably trying to stir up shit.

    • englisc


      I don't care if I'm called bigoted for speaking the truth just because it isn't politically correct, so fuck off with that shit. This is why people keep on getting killed, because people care more about being PC and defending people who despise you than you do defending your own people.

      I agree that some of the comments to Martin's tweet were disgusting - I never tweeted against him. I think it's sad that people are so brainwashed that they can't or refuse to notice such an obvious threat and an obvious pattern and it's getting them killed. They've become suicidal. They'd rather be dead than be called a bigot or a racist.

      Yeah he's a Sikh. Nobody here has a problem with Sikhs, and for good reason - they aren't blowing people up, they aren't forming paedophile rape gangs that are raping thousands of young girls like the Muslims did in Rotherham and elsewhere, they aren't creating no-go zones where normal British people and even police can't go without being attacked.

    • @Englisc: Some people just are hell bent on turning a blind eye to real Islam to their own demise, space and country.

      No matter how much you present facts, it just won't matter to these his fools who refuse to see the truth for what it really is.

    Taxi driver was a Sikh, Not Muslim. Sikhs were also out all of the following days giving out free food and drinks to people, And free taxi rides etc etc, Theyre a genuinely lovely and amazing people.

    Stop confusing the two. Sikhs and British people get along very well, Have done for centuries, They fought alongside each other in many wars and shared an empire together. Whereas Islam and Britain has done nothing but fight for nearly 1,400 years.

    Words. That's all it is, words. Action is what's needed. And unfortunately that is going to mean bloodshed. If anyone thinks words will solve anything, they won't.

    They can talk about the "religion of peace" all they want, but it's just more words. Nobody has been given the option of peace. Until someone goes in and wipes out the radicals, then nothing will change. Ideally that should be done form the inside.

    Repeatedly saying religion of peace does nothing. Put some teeth into it.

    Also, it's nice to hear that at least some Muslims in Britain aren't actually cheering for what happened. Even so, that's no excuse for the Brits to have such low vetting standards on immigration, that they can't separate the garden snakes from the rattlesnakes.

    "My peers are blowing your kids up - but at least I offer you free taxi rides. We good?"

    There is a problem with terrorists being mainly muslims. Yes, not all muslims are terrorists - but most terrorists are muslims. So something is fundamentally going wrong there. And I would think that once children deaths are involved, people would take their political correct head out of their ass. Apparently they don't.

    • But whats the problem? Its not islam. Otherwise we would see Turkish terrorism and we really don't, we would see terrorist from indoneisa, but we don't. Its not islam that is the problem, its the middle east. If you look back at photos and videos you will see that the middle east was peaceful and in fact looked not unlike the western world in the fifties/60s but now its completely different. Its not islam that is the problem its that the middle east had their political, economic and infrastructures destroyed, they had power hungry people put into power, they even had democratically elected presidents over thrown simply because they where socialists. This is in part because of the fall of the ottoman empire which left them disorganized and created a power vacuum but its also because of the cold war between (primarily) the US and the soviet union which used the middle east as its battleground manipulating groups in the area to gain power over their adversaries.

    in my opinion you can't let the good muslims represent all of islam and you can't let the bad represent it all either. but what you can do is study the main part of the religion which in this case is Muhammad whos last words were "MUHAMMAD: "May Allah curse the Jews and Christians for they built the places of worship at the graves of the prophets." Bukhari, Vol. 1, #427 [Muhammad had been poisoned years earlier by a Jewish woman whose husband was killed by the Muslims and the poison had slowly worked its effect. He said this while dying in the arms of his wife Aisha]. ". now many of you will bring up the crusades because lets be honest your too stupid to realize that your wrong. Jesus last words were "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do." Luke 23:34. i have many muslim friends that i love to death but the facts stay facts you cannot stand for a group of people just so you can act "accepting" my recommendation is move to saudi arabia for a bit and come back to tell me how wonderful sharia law is...

    • @Iraqveteran666 No, that's just it, the reporter from Cosmo KNEW he was a Sikh and not a Muslim because the picture she asked permission to use said on the CAPTION that he was a Sikh.

      It's not like some innocent mistake, forget that Muslims don't wear those Indian-style turbans, forget that he clearly has more Asiatic features and doesn't look Semitic, this reporter passed off this "mistake" to her readers because fuck them, they're too stupid to confuse them with facts, she needs to just tell them what to think and what to believe and make sure the facts support her agenda, not the other way around.

      Cosmo has even deleted this story because of all the backlash (Oh, it's not like Sikhs and Muslims HATE each other or anything...) but that won't stop millions of retards from reposting it and retweeting it and hashtagging it and whatever else people do to shit.

    Obviously not Muslims as a whole are to blame, but the problem lies in that his family and mosque KNEW he had ISIS sympathies and did nothing about it, and also he traveled out of the country to receive ISIS training in the Middle East yet was let right back in.
    That's why people get upset at Muslims as a whole. It's rarely just a lone wolf acting out, they are usually either supported by or at least not stopped by the local family and local Muslim community, and it has been found at least time and time again around 20-40% of Muslim communities have sympathies for terrorists.

    THAT is what people are upset about. We can say "not all Muslims" and it's true, but the Muslim community just wants to apologize after, not actually stop it from happening.
    And yes, Zionists want this to keep happening.
