Maz Saleem

Islamophobia, anti-racism & anti-war campaigner - daughter of the late Haji Mohammed Saleem - 'Surely we belong to God and to him we shall return'

My deepest sympathies and condolences go to all those who lost loved ones and were injured in the attacks in Westminster last week. I feel very strongly about such incidents because my father was murdered by neo Nazi-fascist terrorists and I am still struggling to cope with this tragic loss in my family.

My father Mohammed Saleem was a Muslim and he was murdered by the same far-right terrorist who bombed mosques in the West Midlands and became known as “The Tipton Bomber.” Quite rightly we do not equate all white people with this terrorist, but why are all Muslims treated as potential terrorists?
