    After reading the threads on here I have to wonder do any of you know any Muslims in real life? If you do how do you act with these people that many of you believe are a part of a barbaric religion? As a Muslim I've never come across a person criticise my religion irl but on here it seems to be a we hate Muslims party.

    One is opposing an ideology, which is reasonable; the other is disliking people simply because they follow that belief system, which is unreasonable.

    Sadly, most ignorant people here act like lions but in real life they're pussy cats who wouldn't converse in such a manner.

    Yes

    No different, as I see the Qur'an as wrong, which is very very different, as very few people listen to every part.
    As a Muslim I've never come across a person criticise my religion irl but on here it seems to be a we hate Muslims party.
    It just goes to show the level of free speech irl, however the majority of people on here are criticising a religion, which is a good and healthy action, not muslims. However, you are right, some go too far, and believe that all muslims follow everything litterally.

    Yeah I'm Muslim but my family aren't really. They say they're Muslim but make stereotypes about Muslims and disrespect the religion. There is a lot of hate out there, I can't escape it even at home!

    Not really. I certainly don't have any as close friends.

    A lot of people forget that Muslims are concentrated into lower class ghettos of cities and therefore most British people would never properly meet a Muslim person. There are places in the devolved nations where seeing a Muslim or Black is unheard of.

    In contrast, Indians and East Asians tend to be more spread out into towns and villages.

    Yeah I kinda have a crush on a Muslim guy and I will not believe he is part of something barbaric... To me Daesh are not Muslims and just bloodthirsty killers

    I will not believe ANY Muslims I know are evil and barbaric like ISIS as I know they are good people (I'm a Christian btw)
