Muslim is not synonymous with terrorist

Fahad Alotaibi,
Bowling Green, KY.

I was born and raised in n Islamic country. When 9/11 happened, I had no idea that the world would turn on us as being Muslim. I was thinking that others would notice the difference between a religion and terrorism. I understand that when people get harmed, they start thinking involuntarily. As a Muslim, I’ve been taught from elementary to high school not to harm anyone in the name of Islam, anyone who does so is not truly following the teaching of Islam. Any act I do, shall be my own decision and not a reflection of my entire religion.
