I’m sorry I won’t apologise for the acts of some criminals in Nice, I’m sorry I won’t apologise for the acts of similar criminals in Iraq, Syria, Pakistan, Saudi or Egypt. I can’t and won’t apologise because they don’t represent me nor my beliefs. I won’t do it because I will not give them the pleasure nor the acknowledgment they are after
I can’t apologise for these criminals who don’t represent Islam or any Islamic belief. As known to all muslims or anyone who has the slightest idea about what Islam is, that as a religion, it promotes mercy, forgiveness and humanity. As a religion, it does not accept any act of violence to the extent where the Quran clearly states that in Allah’s regard killing an innocent human being is as bad as killing of all humanity. There’s no hope for these criminals for forgiveness from Allah because they have done this deliberately, so they will not event smell the scent of Heaven.
I can’t apologise for these criminals because they are no different in my eyes to those who attacked me for wearing my muslim veil in the back of September 11th and the London 2005 attacks. They have done this in ignorance but have hurt me, emotionally more than physically, have taken away my feeling of safety and made me feel vulnerable.
I am sad for the killings last night in Nice in the same way and with that same level of heartache as I felt about the killings in Iraq, Saudi, Syria and every other place where an innocent soul is lost. All blood is sacred, all blood should not be shed, no killing of an innocent human being is excused, NONE.
