Ever since the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the recent attacks in Paris, people have become discriminating of every Muslim -- and generalization and stereotyping can be a bad thing. People should not discriminate someone just because they belong to a certain belief or country. Contrary to what others say, even Christians and Buddhists can be violent. The only difference is that society does not judge everyone of them in a bad light when someone from them does something violent and terrifying. So why should people discriminate Muslims? Basically, we shouldn't. Learn to accept and respect everyone, because if you don't, the terrorists have basically won by making people hate each other.
A group of pranksters from the Dit is Normaal group went to the streets and began reading verses from the "Holy Quran" or so they claimed to the innocent civilians.
However, the prank was that the group was actually reading passages from the Holy Bible, not from the Quran.
You'd think that once the pranksters read the passages, the civilians would become doubtful and ask whether or not the passages were actually from the Quran or not. But sadly, that wasn't the case and people just gullibly believed them.
After some violent and questionable passages from the Holy Bible were read to the people in the street, the people actually started condemning the Quran, since they thought the verses were from the sacred book of Islam. OOPs.
People criticized the sexist, violent, and "absolute truth" passages from the "Quran" when they were actually condemning passages from the Bible. So, what do we learn here? First, people can be ignorant of their own faith. Second, they can be really gullible. Third, they can be horribly judgmental people who criticize something without even checking the authenticity of the claim or verifying the source. And finally, even the sacred book of Christianity has sexist, violent, "absolute truth" passages that even Christians would find disturbing, if only they read the holy Bible.
