"I went to the mall, and a little girl called me a terrorist.

My name is Ela. I am seventeen years old. I am not Muslim, but my friend told me about her friend being discriminated against for wearing a hijab. So I decided to see the discrimination firsthand to get a better understanding of what Muslim women go through.

My friend and I pinned scarves around our heads, and then we went to the mall. Normally, vendors try to get us to buy things and ask us to sample a snack. Clerks usually ask us if we need help, tell us about sales, and smile at us. Not today. People, including vendors, clerks, and other shoppers, wouldn't look at us. They didn't talk to us. They acted like we didn’t exist. They didn't want to be caught staring at us, so they didn't look at all.

And then, in one store, a girl (who looked about four years old) asked her mom if my friend and I were terrorists. She wasn't trying to be mean or anything. I don’t even think she could have grasped the idea of prejudice. However, her mother’s response is one I can never forgive or forget. The mother hushed her child, glared at me, and then took her daughter by the hand and led her out of the store.

All that because I put a scarf on my head. Just like that, a mother taught her little girl that being Muslim was evil. It didn't matter that I was a nice person. All that mattered was that I looked different. That little girl may grow up and teach her children the same thing.

This experiment gave me a huge wake-up call. It lasted for only a few hours, so I can’t even begin to imagine how much prejudice Muslim girls go through every day. It reminded me of something that many people know but rarely remember: the women in hijabs are people, just like all those women out there who aren't Muslim."

Perasaan campur aduk ketika membaca cerita ini, sebegitukah besar fitnah untuk umat Islam ini, sampai anak2 umur 4 tahun saja mengira bahwa wanita yang memakai jilbab saja di sangka teroris, masyaAllah

Rany ZU said...

karena mereka diajarin dari kecil arab=teroris...
saya punya adek n dirumah ga pernah diajarin agama mana yang jelek...dia belum berpikir dan taunya "boleh dan ga boleh" walaupun mungkin dia juga belum ngerti sepenuhnya..

moerad qrad said...

Amimomio said...

ckckckck,,,media berperan besar dalam memberitakan sesuatu yang tak benar.sampai2 anak kecil sudah di tekankan pada pikirannya kalo yang pake jilbab itu teroris.

moerad qrad said...

semoga tidak ada sesuatu yang lucu di sini ya Amimomio :D
karna ini adalah PR serius kita bersama, untuk melawan fitnah keji pada agma islam ini.

A kicking epilog which every nonmuslim should read!

moerad qrad said...

yup Kang...every nonMuslim should know about this,,,islam is not terrorist and the women in Hijabs are people, like the others

Bang Arbi said...

itu artikel pake bahasa linggis yak. artinya apa sih kang moerad? hihihi... :p

ini menunjukkan bahwa memang "ide" islam teroris telah ditanamkan di benak non-muslim sejak kecil. makin kuatnya ya sejak peristiwa nine eleven (911) itulah... fitnah keji yg dilancarkan ke ummat muslim. termasuk yg saya lihat di film : TAKEN 2, SWORDFISH, THE A TEAM.
