Washington D.C., Nov. 19 : In the aftermath of the deadly Paris carnage, the people across the globe have taken to the social media to condole the 13/11 deaths and remove Islamophobia from the western world.
A lot of Muslims across various social media platforms are using the hashtag, #NotInMyName, as a part of the campaign to eradicate Islamophobia.
“I don’t see ISIS as Muslim. I see terrorists when I look at ISIS,” Philistine Ayad, a Muslim feminist, told CNN.
Ayad said that ISIS is using certain aspects of the religion and distorting them in order to justify their gruesome actions.
She hopes the #NotInMyName campaign will help remove Islamophobia from Western culture.
“Using #NotInMyName is a way for me to not only condemn the terrorist attacks, but to also spread the message that ISIS does not represent Islam. It is a way for me to have a voice and break stereotypes, rather than stay silent,” said Dania Saltagi, a student in an American university.
Along with numerous other Muslims, Ayad and Saltagi continue to participate in the campaign. (ANI)
