Not Omar Mateen !

As a Muslim person, one hopes it isn’t a Muslim. And when it turned out to be a Muslim, one knew that a certain playbook was going to come out. When there is a Muslim behind…they represent Islam and for any good damn cause when there is a Muslim, they represent individual. In Orlando , there happen much more, which was not commonly known and shown. This post is for Orlando.
I and Islam mourn for innocent killing. Our religion never permits any innocent killing on any basis.

This Post By A Muslim Who Donated Blood To Orlando Shootout Victims During Ramadan Is Heartening.

50 people were killed in a mass shooting incident at a gay nightclub in Florida, Orlando, on Sunday. The accused, Omar Mateen, himself took responsibility for this terror attack by calling 911. Since then, a lot of support has poured in from around the world for the survivors, injured and deceased. 

A plea was also made on social media for people to donate blood for the same cause, and many people came forward. One of them was Mahmoud ElAwadi, a resident of Florida, who posted the following on Facebook: 

This attack was yet another opportunity for certain people to blame and shame the entire Islamic community.

Mahmoud isn’t the only Muslim to have donated
blood to the victims of the Orlando shooting accident. And considering that it’s the holy month of Ramadan, when Muslims are fasting and cannot eat or drink, donating blood is one mean feat. But kudos to Mahmoud and others who put the lives of their countrymen over theirs! 

It’s time to stop stereotyping and focus on the real problems. Blaming and hating a community or religion will not stop these attacks on humanity.

Let’s together pray for the people of Orlando!
