How 9-11 Had a Negative Consequence on the Islamic Culture
September 11, 2001, was a day that American will never forget. That is the day our country was attacked by terrorist. This attack claimed many lives in New York and devastated our country. This significant historical event is very important. This attack changed the way the American people have felt, looked at and viewed Muslim. The terrorist attack on September 11, 2001 is one of the biggest historical events that had happed in America and felt around the world. American society went through a great change. The impact is still very real and has had a great impact on us still.
The attacks did have a big effect on Americans the way that they felt and viewed Muslims, even though not all of the Muslims deserved the way Americans felt about them. Some statistics show that hate crimes against Southeast Asians and Muslims went up in numbers right after the attacks. The attacks made the American people so angry that many took it out on those who physically or religiously resembled the attackers. American society was more prone to feel anger against Muslims and Southeast Asians, because of the attacks. Sources state, “The American Muslim Council (AMC) strongly condemns this morning’s plane attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon and expresses deep sorrow for Americans that were injured and killed… There is no excuse that makes this ok, this type of an immoral and inhumane act that has affected so many innocent American lives” (Ali). It is wrong and inconsiderate to hate all Muslims as a group or think that they all want to kill non-Muslims, as many people have belived this from after the attacks. Many of the American Muslims strongly disagree with the use of wrong doing for the name of their religion and to be able to voice the sadness that they feel.
There are a lot of Muslims living in the world. There are as many as 1.5 billion Muslims...
