Anti-Islam activist Pam Geller has put out a series of ads in New York City implying that all Muslims are terrorists. Muslims around the world have been denouncing ISIS, saying the group doesn’t represent their religion, like with #notinmyname. But others are sick of being expected to apologize for the actions of others just because they share the same religion. We asked a group of you what you think about this debate.
A group of young British Muslims launched a campaign to reject the Islamic state, whose acts of violence in recent weeks has sparked international denunciation.
Following the murder of David Haines, the latest in a series of violent murders committed by the Islamic state, the campaign was launched to urge Muslims in Britain to denounce the acts of ISIS carried in the name of Islam.
Led by Active Change Foundation, a foundation for charity based in London, the campaign #NotInMyName is launched to raise awareness against the brutality and dangers of the ISIS, calling on Muslims to stand against this group, which is “damaging Islam and Muslims”.
On the campaign’s promotional video posted on YouTube, a veiled girl said, “The ISIS does not represent Islam or any Muslim.”
