Oleh : Leiny Nadira


Crisis understanding in diversity religious has been spread over the world. Especially in the judgment of the Kontakt terrorism actor towards Moslem civilians in any country, it has been formed since large scale attack in 9/11 and increased until now, supported by the existence Cheap nba Jerseys of ISIS movement in Syria and Iraq. This judgment has been provoked by media oakley outlet which promoting the paradigm to hate Muslims and create some alert towards nations about the existence of Moslem. Moslem is considered as a killer, Islam then seems as a bad belief which supports the existence of violent in its worship.Watch movie online The Transporter Refueled (2015)Streaming Beauty and the Beast (2017)

Any actions to counter this paradigm has been done through interfaith dialogues on youth program over the world, discussions, seminars, campaigns to build an understanding towards Moslem who also against the existence of violence and rejected the idea of ISIS movement and Al-Qaeda in killing innocent people. Moslem leaders and imams in the west such as Feisal Abdul Rauf–American Imam of Masjid Al-Farah in New York City–, Nihad Awad –executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relation–, Yusuf Qardawi –Qatar Egyptian Imam– tried to deliver message that “This is not Islam” and condemned all violence and terrorism plaguing the world today. But along in reality, this paradigm has been turned into an action which considered Moslem as a peace hater. Bullying, discrimination, racism named Islamophobia towards Moslem – even it has been taken as a lawful action in France – is undeniable. Take PEGIDA (Patriotic Europeans against the Islamisation of the West) as one of examples.

This judgment action towards Moslem actually can be solved trough 3 ways. First, all nation leaders should be gathered continuously to condemn all terrorism activity and differentiate what is should be considered as terrorist, Moslem or extremist. It has been done by Barack Obama who conducted White House Three-Days Summit, this February, to invite all nations Cheap Jordans Sale for fighting against violent extremism. He said, “Groups like al Qaeda and ISIL promote a twisted interpretation of religion that is rejected by the overwhelming majority of the world’s Muslims. Oakleys Outlet The world must continue to lift up the voices of Muslim clerics and scholars who teach the true peaceful nature of Islam. We can Cheap Jerseys echo the testimonies of former extremists who know how terrorists betray Islam. “

Second, asking the media to shift the naming of Moslem as a terrorist, but name it as extremists. It is needed because the influence of media has formed mindset in society. Moslems are considered as terrorist because they are termed by media as terrorist. From this term, it then creates a rejection action in society towards Moslem existence in their country. This action can be done by support from any government over the world. Such as, U.S Department which stated in media, “we are not at war with Islam, we are at war with people who have perverted Islam. We fight against violent extremism.”

Last, continuously uniting people mindset to understand each other and promoting human right in wider society are meant as an action to alter Non-Moslem people mind in accepting Moslem existence in their country. Along with this, Moslem also should open themselves to diversity in their environment. Simple action such as Christians and Moslems leader can walk together to Church and Masjid, teachers do not considered Moslem students which wear hijab as conservative people, respect Moslems when walking around in public places as a part of society, should be conducted together. Campaigning to stop racism should be done continuously in large scale, such as what have been done by UAF (United Against Facism) in UK and CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relation) in US.
