Letter to the editor
As a practicing Muslim, I am both appalled and outraged by the latest series of bombings in London, all supposedly done in the name of Islam. The monsters who perpetrate such crimes in the name of this lovely religion CANNOT and SHOULD NOT be called Muslims.
Islam does not teach us violence. Allah says in the Quran "Kill one innocent and it is like you have killed the entire humanity, save one life and it is as if you have saved the entire humanity."
I request that people of the world realize that these terrorists who call themselves Islamic Jihadists DO NOT speak for over 99 percent of the 1.2 billion peace loving Muslims around the world.
