This is How Muslims Respond To Lies The International Media Makes About Them

By Sarmad Amer | 24 Nov, 2015

One of the UK’s leading newspapers, The Sun, made false claims recently that 1 in 5 Muslims sympathize with ISIS. Unfortunately such claims by even the mainstream international media are not uncommon and after the recent Paris attacks, and an increased air of Islamophobia in the West, such propaganda against Muslims is hurtful but not unexpected.

But this time Muslims have decided not to sit back and take such discriminatory behavior silently. They have responded and what a response! Muslims began tweeting at the Sun with the hashtags #1in5Muslims and #1in5 and it became a global trend. And, it was recently reported that the false numbers by The Sun drew in record numbers of complaints against a story – 450 complaints!

Let’s take a look at what some of the responses to The Sun’s fake statistics about Muslims were:


There were some who called out the newspaper on their false claims


And others who were just surprised by how this became news


Some really knew Muslim children’s priorities

Because like all children, Muslim kids want gifts from the Santa too!


However some people had questionable music tastes


And others were clueless about Muslims’ lifestyles

Like this person who does not realize most Muslims use water instead of toilet paper


Or this person who doesn’t know Muslims only get already Muslaman pets, rights


These guys responded with truth


And this person made claims that could actually be true


But generally people were very supportive of Muslims

SubhanAllah brother!

And some really knew that in the end it is Adele that unites us all


There is always a way to respond to hate with love and Muslims know it.
