ISLAM AND MUSLIMS HAVE ALMOST BECOME SYNONYMS OF TERRORISM SINCE 9/11.

ABUSIVE MESSAGES, ANTI-MUSLIM COMMENTS

IT’S TOUGH TO DEAL WITH ABUSIVE COMMENTS THAT KEEP COMING EVERY DAY. THERE ARE REGULAR SUCH EMAILS AND COMMENTS ON THE POSTS. MOST OF THESE GUYS DON’T EVEN BOTHER TO READ THE POSTS AND IT APPEARS THEY ARE FULL OF HATE TOWARDS ISLAM AND MUSLIMS.WE WAS FORCED TO START MODERATING COMMENTS SOMETIME BACK WHEN I FELT THAT ALMOST EVERY DAY  GETTING SUCH COMMENTS THAT USED TO HURT AND UNSETTLE ME. OFTEN, THEY ARE FULL OF SO MUCH HATRED THAT YOU SHUDDER AND THINK, IS THIS REAL? HOW MUCH PERCENT OF PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY HATE MUSLIM AND DO THEY REALLY HATE US SO MUCH? THAT CYBERSPACE IS DIFFERENT FROM NORMAL WORLD. HERE PEOPLE WHO DON’T HAVE THE CHEEK TO SAY OR DO ANYTHING OPENLY, CAN MAKE ANONYMOUS COMMENTS OR SEND EMAILS, AND THEY ARE A HANDFUL OF PEOPLE WHO KEEP DOING THAT REGULARLY AND MAKES YOU FEEL THAT THERE ARE SO MANY ISLAMOPHOBES. KEEPS ON TELLING YOU EVERY ATROCITY WHICH BELIEVES MUSLIMS HAVE COMMITTED NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU THINK THAT YOU WON’T GIVE A DAMN TO THEM, THE FACT IS THAT EVERYTIME YOU GET SUCH A MAIL OR COMMENT, IT HURTS. SOMETIMES WHEN IT IS TERRIBLY ABUSIVE, YOU FEEL WHY NOT GET THIS GUY TRACKED AND BOOKED FOR HIS ACTION.AFTER ALL, IF SOMEONE ABUSES YOU OPENLY ON THE STREET, IT IS TOUGH TO ACT AGAINST HIM LEGALLY BUT IF SOMEONE SENDS YOU AN EMAIL OR WRITES AN ABUSIVE POST, IT IS POSSIBLE TO TEACH HIM A LESSON THAT HE WILL NOT FORGET.THE EVIDENCE IS STRONG, THE IT [INFORMATION TECHNOLOG] ACT MAKES ANY SUCH CRIME PUNISHABLE AND THE SENTENCE IS MUCH MORE BUT NOBODY BOTHERS. SOMETIME YOU FEEL YOU SHOULD TAKE THE LEAD AND GET A FEW GUYS CAUGHT. AT LEAST, THIS WILL SEND THE MESSAGE ACROSS. RACISM AND HATESPEAK AREN’T TAKEN SERIOUSLY  YET AND PEOPLE OFTEN FORGET, BUT IT’S A SERIOUS CRIME.

SOMETIMES  REALLY WONDER, WHAT COULD BE THE CAUSE OF SUCH DEEP HATE?
 TODAY THERE ARE BOMBS EXPLODING AND ISLAM IS LINKED TO TERRORISM. BUT WHY WAS SUCH A SIMILAR HATRED, 16 YEARS AGO OR EVEN BEFORE THAT, WHEN BABRI MASJID WAS DESTROYED AND WHEN MUSLIMS WERE OPENLY ABUSED.EVEN THEN, IT WAS NOT EASY FOR MUSLIM TO GET A HOUSE ON RENT (I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT JOBS OR ANY OTHER THING).
