A short comment on #CharlieHebdo and the Media

1 Comment

After #‎CharlieHebdo tragedy mainstream media screens were flooded with “Muslim speakers”. They were all brought just because they were Muslims.

That, by itself has an underlying racist message.

No matter what they say on screen, “Islam doesn’t represent”, “Islam is a religion of peace”, the core of their presence on primetime is to defend Islam, because Islam, as a whole is guilty of this crime.
