I am not part of any religion nor I believe in anything. But I can see from other people they always think Muslim are bad people or they all have some kind of terrorists access. I know and most people do that it's not true.
Even in T.V, they always show bad side of Muslim. It's very hard to believe western news T.V says.

Maybe some people don't appreciate seeing women hide (in fear) behind a burqa...or it might have something to do with the way women are oppressed and suppressed at every level.

Muslims like to blow up innocent folks, bomb jets, buildings etc. That might be one reason they think Muslims are bad. I don't see Christians or Hindus or Mormons doing this.

And I don't see all Muslims doing it either. Good Muslims, and there are many, are given a bad name by the few that do indeed harm other people in horrible ways.

Personally, I do not see any Muslims as bad unless they have been found guilty of a crime. Muslims, like Christians, are victims of their own religious indoctrination. For many Muslims the end result is subservient women, often voluntarily subservient, and lesser time-consuming religious practices. For many Christians the indoctrination can mean bigoted views of gays, and for some, missionary trips to increase church membership.

No,not all. But many provide support for Muslim terrorist either through money channeled through charities or by making excuses for the attacks. Muslim terrorist have committed attacks on nearly all continents in the name of Islam.

Islamophobia and to a lesser extent racism. A muslim commits a crime and it is indicative of all Muslims. A Christian commits a crime and they were just a bad person. Similarly, a black person commits a crime and it is indicative of all blacks. A white person commits a crime and they are just a bad person.

EX:
If an abortion clinic is bombed or a Mosque is shot up they blame they person, but if a cafe is bombed they blame Islam and demand ALL Muslims to take accountability.

It helps when bad stuff happens, most people and or religions step up and denounce such violence. With Muslims not so much. Sometimes you hear excuses but mostly crickets. Rest assure if my religion was under attack by extremist, we would be marching in the street denouncing them and their actions.
