We have come up with the list of the most racist states towards Muslims. Insider Monkey’s article brings the situation of Muslims into limelight with this compilation. A major reason behind this is the spread of Islamophobia, which has gripped the country with a major role played by the alt-right movement. Due to the propaganda being spread, combined with the violent acts of a few, ( I know statistically there are tens of thousands of Muslims terrorists, but when you compare that with a population of 1.8 billion, it is but a drop in the ocean) Islam’s name has been tarnished on a national as well as global scale.
The only way to combat this is to spread the truth about Islam and acknowledge the fact that it needs to be modernized and enter the 21st century. If countries like Saudi Arabia, the self-professed caretakers of Islam carry out stoning of people for adultery and cut off hands for theft, the increasingly progressive West will never accept Islam. On the other hand, Muslims need to take strong steps to denounce the terrorist acts and distance themselves from the proponents of such acts.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked two of the most racist states towards Muslims from their list.
The first state is Virginia. It’s one thing to believe that you are superior to Muslims in any way, simply because of religious beliefs. It is another thing to attack them verbally for this belief and make them feel unwelcome or like they don’t belong. It is completely insane to actually kill someone for the simple sin of being a Muslim. A 17-year-old girl was killed while walking home from the mosque with a metal baseball bat in Fairfax, Virginia earlier this year. The next state on our list is Tennessee that used to be a safe haven for Muslims and was considered to be one of the best places for Muslims to live. However, things have broken down, and they have broken down fast. Now, it is a place where Muslims often have to live in fear, especially after a mosque was burned down in the area. Online threats and increased bullying have now become a way of life for many Muslims in the state.
