Brother, Islam does not forbid donations of organs .

It is totally unfair to link the terrorist acts of few people with the whole Islamic community. Being a muslim I condemn the killing of innocent people. I' m from Pakistan. I have college mates and many friends who all do condemn these attacks. Then how come you guys can blame the whole islamic community ?

52 people died in London bombings. Yes we all do feel sorry for them, but did you ever think about those 25,000 Iraqis who have been killed in the last 2 years? They were all muslims.

I can just call it double standard policy from west

Your comments are far from constructive.

I see no double standards here, The west doesnt link terrorism to the entire community of Islam. The west in fact has embraced multi culturalism for decades. It is true that some in the west feel this is a social experiment failing.

Alot of people in the west are placing suspicion of the Islamic community, but I wonder would the same be true if bands of Terrorists conducted mass murder of civillians under the name of Christian crusades in Muslim countries? Try placing the shoe on the other foot.

Condemning Terrorism is far from enough , The Muslim community needs to confront it ,weekly, even daily starting in your Mosques.

You feel sorry for the 52 people who died in London , my heart bleeds for them ,sorry is simply not a strong enough word.
Your comparison to the 25,000 people killed in Iraq and your tone of this being the fault of the west is unacceptable. Most of these Deaths are of the Armed Jihadists and the poor souls who fall victims to these terrorists suicide bombs.

I dont want to be accused of splitting hairs but ...... You say ALL of the 25,000 Iraqi's killed are Muslims , this is statistically false, 3pc of Iraqs population are listed as of Christian or other religion so 750 of these deaths statistically weren't Muslim.

Moon you seem to be an intelligent person of high moral fibre. Your interpretation of the truth has simply been distorted.
Submitting....
