    As for changing the minds of ignorant people who tar all Muslims with the same brush, I can't speak for anyone else but personally I've given up on that. It's been over a decade since 9/11, we've had Mosque open days, harmony days, marches, leaders on TV denouncing terrorism (which rarely even gets media coverage) but enough is enough, some of us are tired of having to constantly apologise for something that isn't our fault. Some of the things I see on social media and in the real world have convinced me that there are people who are so full of hate towards Muslims I doubt anything would change their minds; and that's their problem not mine, I can't take responsibility for having to change their narrow minded views.
    Just wanted to say I'm sorry. It's such a frustrating thing to have a voice that is never really heard.

    Why not? I'm sure other people had mentioned him to the media, highly doubt he went running towards them shouting 'I'm a hero!' He deserves to be praised and the article should be shared a million more times to help spread the message to other extremists and those who believe the whole religion is to blame, that quite simply it's not. There's good in most people and sh*t are the minority.

    I am guessing that @TwiddleDiddle would choose to keep a low profile for fear of repercussion from these crazy nuts terrorists?
