Majority of people of all faiths should stand together

As a Muslim, I strongly condemn the attack on the French Magazine Charlie Hebdo and those behind it. These terrorists do not represent me nor do they represent Islam.

Their wicked ideology is an existential threat to Islam itself.

Part of the problem is that these extremists and Islamophobes – responsible for burning mosques and attacking women wearing hijab – need each other in order to exist. We, the majority of ordinary people of every faith, race and colour, should stand together to these extremists and say enough is enough.
