Double standard of media & politicians

25th Mar 2015

Sir, Your front page story on the media indifference to the murders of American Muslims is unsurprising.  Were it not for social media which not only reported on the murders, but also highlighted the double standards of the Western media and politicians who didn’t care about Muslims being murdered in cold blood whilst they go overdrive if a Muslim kills non-Muslims.

Of course, Muslim countries took advantage of this lack of concern about Muslim victims, including US President Obama. Turkish President Recep Erdogan criticised the White House for not making a statement on the murders.This criminal act has shown beyond doubt the Islamophobic nature of Western media and political leaders.

Yours,
