Condolences

An innocent young Muslim woman has tragically been killed on her way to buy groceries, seemingly caught in the crossfire of a turf-war.

Muslim social media erupts: another white terrorist strikes again!

Far Right agitators: probably an honour killing!

Anti-discrimination activists: Where is the media coverage? If the attacker had been Muslim, this would be all over the media.

Wrong on all counts. There has been extensive media coverage. The attackers may have been Muslim. She was a beloved daughter and model student, cherished by her family. There is no evidence she was targeted, for political reasons or otherwise.

Better to say: Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un. May Allah have Mercy on her soul.
