    Why aren't you sure. What do you think will happen?
    I'll get attacked/ racial abused or something. Not at church but on the journey.

    Where do you live. I don't see why racially you'd be more likely to be abused today than yesterday. If you were wearing a hijab or long beard maybe.

    People should just watch their mouths before mouthing off at Muslims or Asians - we're clearly not all the same

    Are you British first and Muslim second or the opposite.

    Would your loyalty in war to Britain or your/your families Muslim homeland.
    I can't help myself, so,

    'Muslim' isn't an ethnicity so I'm pretty sure you can be British AND Muslim first?

    For those of you who aren't Muslim or brown , don't try and patronize those who are fearful. It's common a occurrence to receive some form of abuse from ignorant scum and we have to live it with due to the actions of a few.

    My parents don't know I'm Muslim and they're constantly saying horrible things about Islam, and about the Prophet (saw), thanks to these attacks and other past issues. Yes it's horrible, so I can't imagine what it must be like being directly insulted for being a Muslim.

    I'm not a Muslim, I'm a christian and I'm half indian, half english. I have dark skin though and have gotten a bit of abuse before.

    I gotta go church tomorrow which is a long journey so I don't know If i should go.

    For some reason this thread makes me feel at home for some reason.

    No, not for a long time. Maybe when I get married inshallah. Who knows what would happen if I did, so better safe than sorry.

    i'd imagine it would be very scary for those that live in areas that aren't particularly culturally diverse.

    I think that people are stupid to think about muslims in such a way. If the Qu'ran teaches muslims to be murders, why is it only about 1% of them who actually terrorists? And why aren't the rest of them like that? What has happened is that islam has become what (excuse me) people of a dark complexion were in the 90s and 80s. They have been dehumanised because of what a tiny population are doing. And why? Because the media need a punchbag(!). It doesn't make good news without a good old-fashioned villain. If you are scared because of those people think like that (especially your friends), then you shouldn't be their friends. Full-stop. I may be an agnostic, but I can definitely see what is happening to Islam. It's worrying.
