Scrolling news:

Why should Muslims apologise for someone else’s crimes?

26th Jul 2013


Sir, I fully concur with Masuma Rahim (The Muslim News, June 28) that why should Muslims always apologise for crimes committed by a small number of criminals in our community.

No other communities apologise for their criminals. Nor do the media and politicians demand of them on this.

As she beautifully put it, “I don’t want to spend most of it [my life] trying to prove my humanity and my decency. I have nothing to prove; I have committed no crime.”

How come our leaders cannot think like her? Why are they always apologetic?

We need leaders like Masuma.
