I have also some muslim friends, they are very good to me. I think only a few are those who should be branded as terrorists, and not the community as a whole. The problem is, others(both parties) are still having a hard time to co-exist with each other. Every each and one of them are competing for some worthless superiority, to sometimes I think why shouldn't we just learn to appreciate each other and live in harmony, for our country to move forward.

kamusta sahira, i think media has the biggest responsibility on branding muslim as extremist or terrorist...i don't hate muslims, actually we are all alike...muslim and christians have been in war since the beginning of time, it's so sad to see that even up to now they some still hate each other...
