Unfortunately, terror attacks happen every day all over the world and the press doesn’t save any effort to write about them, but if the offender turned out to be Muslim then it’s time to press charges against Islam and call it a violent religion.
Earlier this week, we woke up to the news of a 17-year-old American Muslim, Nabra Hassanen, being found dead in a pond.
News have circulated about Nabra being abducted and murdered. According to Fairfax County police spokeswoman Julie Parker this is a case of “road rage” rather than a hate crime. Police have been investigating if Nabra was also sexually assaulted before being murdered.
The American Muslim girl and a group of her friends were confronted by a 22-year-old man who started to shout insults at the teens who ran back to the mosque except for Nabra who was struck with a metal bat.
Darwin Martinez Torres, 22, has been arrested and charged with the murder of Hassanen however Parker said there was no proof that the attack was related to race or religion in any possible way. Police said there was no sign that Martinez was motivated by hate towards Muslims during th attack.
After the news broke out, many tweets and Facebook post showed support and sent prayers to Nabra’s parents who lost their daughter on Father’s day.
Another terror attack happened last week but this time in London when a van struck a group of pedestrians after they departed late-night prayers.
Terrorism is terrorism no matter what religion or race does the offender or the victim belong to. May all the beautiful souls rest in peace.
