Terrorism

As I came back from work university, CNN is on the TV and they are blaring on the recent terror plots busted in Germany, Denmark etc…

Only a few days ago, tragedy shook Islamabad when bombs exploded killing 27 people in Pakistan.

Is this media bias?

It may not be so, but the temptation is that the news networks cannot resist is to associate Islam with terrorism. This is perhaps unfortunate.

This is perhaps one period in my life since 9/11 that both Islam and terrorism have been juxtaposed so much until tempers are raised and countries divided. In New York, a recent controversy erupted over the opening of an Arabic school.

One wonders how much of this is fear is justified,  or how much of it is an excuse just feel superior. Even in Malaysia, things are not going so well with regards to the relationship Islam has with non-Muslims. This needn’t be so. Farish A Noor tells us why.
