Stop negative media coverage of Islam

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Islam is a religion of peace. I have spent years reading about the religion and have travelled to Islamic countries to see the true Islam for myself.

Muslims, and many non-Muslims alike, have had enough of watching, hearing and seeing the media, particularly the news, represent Islam negatively. The news has made non-Muslims become fearful, anxious and paranoid in public as they are represented as bad members of society.

Islam is the world's fastest growing religion, and there is a reason for that. It's beautiful. For one example, the percentage of terrorists in the international Muslim community is almost insignificant.

The news is not an accurate source of information, but unfortunately it has a lot of power and uneducated people believe headlines before or instead of checking facts and figures before commenting.

Together, we must stand to fight against the unjust and unfair portrayal of Islam in the media, and work to promote the religion for what it truly is. It's a religion of peace, brotherhood, loyalty, devotion and obedience. Women ARE treated fairly too, much better than some non-Muslims treat women. Every country has its extremists, but the Muslim community is undoubtedly one of the kindest, most giving, genuine community in society today.

True followers of the religion do not commit crime, break a promise, force others into the religion or treat people badly. The true Islam must be recognised by the media and must stop using negativity against Islam to produce custom.

I hope that as a community and good people we can stop the attack on Islam, and concentrate on getting facts right before journalists produce this content. Let's stop dividing this world's cultures, and bring people together to love one another.
