The recent terror attacks have led to a lot of discussion about Muslims in Britain and the true nature of Islam.

In the wake of incidents like this, certain groups like to claim Islam is synonymous with these acts of hate. Of course, we know that the cowards who carry out these attacks are not real Muslims, but people who have been brainwashed by a distorted corruption of the faith.

Real Muslims tend not to make the news because, like the vast majority of the UK population, they’re just ordinary people; who, along with pretty much everyone else, go to work, spend time with their families, and hang out with their friends.

“I’m incredibly proud of our team at The Royal London and Barts Health. The response to the call was outstanding from all. There is something the world should know about that team. 3 extremist with warped views of the world committed horrific acts of hate. 100s of Muslims were part of the amazing teams that responded to this incident, doctors, nurse, technicians, receptionists, police officer, paramedics and so many more. When You think of the word Muslim I want you to think of the Muslim nurse that ran our casualty triage area, the Muslim surgeon who operated all night, the Muslim technician that helped arrange transport home for discharged casualties, the Muslim security officer that ran out relatives reception area, the Imams from our Muslim chaplaincy that stayed all night to help comfort the casualties and so many more.”

Ahmad wrote the post to – from our perspective anyway – reclaim the word Muslim and take it back from people who insist on associating it with the awful actions of a tiny minority.
