You may be right that now is not the time for Muslims to object to being bashed over the head for their alleged hatred of freedom in response to the actions of two or three criminals…

Conversely, you might argue that now is not the time for journalists, columnists and politicians to debate the fate of multiculturalism, the place of Islam in Europe, the right to offend Muslims and the impact of immigration on civic society…

…all of which have been trawled over and discussed ad nauseam over the past twelve hours on the Radio, on TV and in the Press.

You may be right that now is the time for Muslims to be quiescent; to apologise for actions which they did not commit or condone.

Conversely, you might argue that if silence is demanded from one, it should be demanded of the other.
