    One has stopped the other from mass shooting just before entering a Mosque. Make a guess who is the terrorist here?
    90% would be with wrong answers because of false image of terrorism in their minds just because of fabricated Media.

    I think we Muslims are responsible as well. How effectively we have fought our case internationally!!
    How vocal we had been to change the perspective which had been allowed to be generated and created because of few incidents, which in most part were reflective!!

    How many write up we see in International media from Pakistanis for example on Kashmir and Kashmiri Muslims plight!!

    How many people on Pakistani media can hold a proper conversation in English for international audience!!
    How many TV big personalities can hold an interview with a foreigner in English without embarrassing us!!

    Try to publish something sensible in English Pakistani media, i.e. Dawn, The News, Express, Tribune.
    While Cyril Almedia would get a say promptly.

    We are our own enemies, lets' face the truth.

    I saw this so many times. But the thing is, we Muslims are responsible for the image created. Had ISIS or Taliban never came to be, this image problem wouldn't be a thing.

    No, the real problem is people who pretend to be Muslims, who hide under the title of Islam, and have absolutely nothing to do with Islam in their behavior, in their conduct, in their life.
    These people are responsible for everything Islam is blamed for.

    So finally they let you to believe in this too then why are we blaming white for calling us terrorists.
    with this new belief system, you would also believe that
    - 9/11 was planned and executed by muslims
    - Sadam was a terrorist and had weapon of mass destruction and 2 million Iraqi death was right.
    - million dead in Afghanistan was a just war.
    - ISIS is really Muslims
    - Alqiada was such a sophisticated terror organization and they planned and executed WTC attacks.
    - TTP is Pakistani terror organization
    - Hafiz Saeed planned Mumbai attacks

    Even if someone who has never heard anything about terrorism still he would consider a clean shaven person more trustworthy than someone with long beard if faces of both clean shaven person and bearded person are a similar

    Stop acting dumb and unaware. ISIS claim to be Muslims, they dress like Muslims, so what do you expect? Of course, the typical Muslim image (turban, beard, loose clothing) will get a bad image.

    Let forum member decide who is being dumb and stupid

    then why are we blaming west, why are we trying to portray Pakistan's soft image
    we are terrorists and we should firmly believe it
    we should help Indian control Kashmir, and endorse their RSS activities, we definitely deserve it

    Neither Pakistan nor all Muslims can be held responsible for the actions of some nutjobs. Similarly neither can all Christians and the West be held responsible for the nutjob in the picture posted above.

    By the way..TTP is a Pakistani terrorist organisation which terrorises Pakistan

    It is essentially the muslim image that embodies fear and unapproachability due to our “brethern” in the terrorist organizations.

    However, it’s not all black and white since after these recent incidents people see any man approaching along and wearing non standard military garb as a threat in certain areas too.

    Media perception is what matters.

    Life is about perceptions and reputation. Muslims are lacking in a lot of fields nowadays and the great Muslim scholars mathematicians Chemists Astronomists are a thing of past.
    Current situation is we are living in countries which have corruption, extremism and lack of tolerance and lack of education.
    We cannot put our point of view across without being angry or emotional. We seem helpless in our counties and cannot do anything about corruption lack of town planning.
    This gives the others the chance to plunder the wealth through the corrupt leaders.
    We hate West but seek their help in difficult times.
    Let us be realistic, a lot of good people live in Muslim countries but because of above reasons and some bad people we are not only getting a bad name but also we are not projecting Islam as it should be.
    When I say we I mean all Muslims including the good the weak, the ones who need help and also the one who are full of hatred for everybody.
    Nobody will fix it and nobody can but us.
    The first step is to identify and accept the problems within.
    Let us see who will get mad at this post
