Everyone likes to be a rational and considerate person. Unfortunately when it comes to dealing with Muslims these higher ideals of logic and reason are often sacrificed in place of prejudice. The following are six instances where double standards are unwittingly employed against Muslims often causing Muslims to endure physical and mental hardships.
- No one abuses a Jewish man for growing a beard according to his religious beliefs. But if a Muslim man does the same thing he is labeled as a terrorist, extremist or fundamentalist!
- When a Christian Nun covers her body from head to toe it is considered as act of devotion to God. But if a Muslim woman dress like that she is ridiculed and discriminated!
- When a western woman stays at home to look after her children without going for a job she is respected for being devoted to her family. But if a Muslim woman stays at home like that she is considered as a prisoner and a woman without women rights!
- A young woman can wear any dress she prefers and enter any higher educational institute. But if a young Muslim woman wearing a hijab enters higher educational institutes she is ridiculed!
- When a Christian, Jew or anyone else murders someone their religion will not prop up. But if a Muslim did the same crime it will be blamed on Islam!
- When someone fights and sacrifices his life for his country, his leaders or his people he is venerated as a hero. But if a Muslim fights and sacrifices his life for his country or his people his family is persecuted, his house is destroyed, his mosque is closed. And he is labeled a terrorist. Why? because he is a Muslim!
- When facing a problem any solution will be accepted and considered. But if the solution is in Islam it will be rejected!
