Terror struck in the heart of Canada few days ago and you may have not heard about it on your local TV station or in your home town newspaper. The reason is: The perpetrator of this gruesome crime was not a Muslim and the victim was neither a Jew or Westerner. That is the ugly truth!

Inna Lillah Wa Inna Aliehe Rajoun.

RIP Brother Mohamed Aslim Zafis!

Thank you Islamic Information for covering this tragic event. Otherwise, people like me living outside Canada would have been in the dark about this terrorist attack.

The same old story everywhere regarding Islamophobia. If the perpetrator is a christian or a jew, he will never be called a terrorist. He will be called as an attacker or lunatic
