With Islam being in the news for all the wrong reasons, an anti-Muslim sentiment seems to be growing day by day in the West. This is a bothersome trend, one that inhibits social harmony and mutual respect in diverse societies. Unfortunately, some Muslims living in the West have to put up with discrimination and bigotry due to the actions of a few extremists.
When will people stop generalizing?
In any case, today I would like to bring your attention to a rather inspiring moment captured in the following video. It was heart-warming to see Stacey Eden, a young Australian woman, standing up against outright bigotry and defending a Muslim woman who was being verbally harassed only for wearing a Hijab.
Hats off to her moral courage!
