Maybe misusing the name of God isn’t so much about saying the shallow words, “Oh my God,” as it is about using the name of God to justify discrimination, oppression, injustice, racism, slavery, xenophobia, poverty, sexism, islamophobia, ableism, homophobia, war, & the list can go on.

The Muslim community is mourning the passing of Nabra, a 17 year old young woman from Sterling, VA. Nabra was beaten to death with a baseball bat and left in a pond after going missing while walking to a mosque with her friends. Hate crime against Muslim Americans is at its highest point with more than 67% increase since 2016. Nabra is another example of the escalating violence towards Muslims Americans. Activists gathered at Union Square to hold a vigil for Nabra and her family and to stand against violence against Muslim Americans.

This is a very heartbreaking story no one deserves to go through. 

Resham Khan and her cousin are victims of an acid attack, a vicious crime that is rapidly growing in the UK.  Not only are they victims of acid attacks, but this was also a hate crime and a blatant act of Islamophobia. The people of the UK fear that white supremacists will make acid their primary way of attacking minorities. Unfortunately, anyone in the UK is allowed to buy acid without a license….even minors. A petition was implemented to call for the attention of the Home Office (UK’s government) in order to put an immediate stop to reckless purchases of deadly acids. 

Resham and her cousin’s lives are gonna change forever…. they were just trying to celebrate a birthday when some disgusting racist sabotaged their night and life. Hopefully by signing the petition, the UK government will realize this is a devastating issue that needs to be fixed immediately. 

Okay so I cant find anything about this on tumblr being shown but I was just ranting about this earlier.

Letters above have been dropped in peoples homes in England announcing a “Punish a Muslim Day” for the 3rd April, and the contents of it is really disgusting and frankly horrifying. Clearly by the introduction of the letter you can tell these have been created and distributed by far right white supremacist groups.

The letter shows a table of scores given for each hate crime, such as pulling the headscarf off a Muslim woman, burning or bombing a mosque, throwing acid, torturing, as well as verbal abuse. The highest score is ‘nuking Mecca’.

Please spread this round, because this should be causing a global outrage. It’s already been covered by various news outlets in the UK, including Pakistani news channels making it a prominent headline. Muslim families are calling in scared and worried that they should stay indoors on the day, Muslim communities are fearing their lives.
