We’re living in a world where hate is almost everywhere, the terrorist terrorising innocent victims, the hateful ignorant scums terrorising the innocent victims that they assumed as terrorists…
Being a Muslim with Bipolar Disorder in today’s world just gives me extreme anxiety, especially when I ‘ve been planning to move to Australia in the near future.
I’ve seen and read of Muslims being harassed, beaten and abused just because of a senseless violent group that chooses to resort in violence by putting Islam’s name in vain, when none of their shit is Islamic, honestly.
Attacking people, including children and women, for political and radical reason, with misquoting Quranic verses?
They don’t realise that they actually look like fools especially to us, Muslims.
Heck, the biggest victim of these morons are actually Muslims in the Middle East.
My heart aches when many mistook us for the ones carrying the swords, when in fact, the swords are actually pointed at us.
ISIS, Al Qaeda, JI, whatever their names will be, have a common goal: To create fear and separation between non-Muslims and Muslims.
The more separated we are from each other, the more pleased they will be, the happier and easier they will be to attack us.
But, the more united we are together regardless of race, language or religion, they can never get through us.
I’m actually grateful that I’m living in Singapore, a multicultural country with extremely tight security.
Everyone is always on the watch, and clueless youths who have been brainwashed by the ISIS’s social media platforms, have been efficiently caught by the police, especially when they were so blatant to fly to Syria to join the morons there, believing the ‘caliphate’ to be true. (Oh if only you can see how many times I rolled my eyes while typing this entry!)
If only I can shout out to the world that they don’t, didn’t and will never represent Islam. They are just rotten apples that don’t deserve to be born in the first place.
Yes, it is actually true that we Muslims are against terrorism, radicalism and extremism.
The media might not show the protest and condemnation made by Muslims against extremism, but trust me, we are sick of these idiots creating a ruckus everywhere.
So to clear everything up…
Yes, I do have bipolar disorder.
Yes, I do have dreams to be a full-time pre-school teacher.
Yes, I have hobbies, like eating, singing, reading.
I’m a Singaporean Muslim and I’m just like everyone else with aspirations and dreams.
And I’m not a terrorist.
With that, I’m going to end this post with Quranic verses that negates extremism,
“Oh People of the Book, don’t go extreme in your religion…”
-Surah An-Nisa’: 171
“There is no compulsion in religion.”
“And say, ‘The truth is from your Lord, so whosoever wants let him believe and whosoever wants let him deny.”
