Muslims in Holland Start Online Campaign against Paris Attacks

A group of Muslims in Holland started an online campaign titled Not My Islam (Niet mijn Islam) which received 11 thousands people's support on the very first day.

Group members who identify themselves as “the silent majority who respects Holland's democratic system” said murder and barbarism could not be linked to Islam.

The group also extended it support for all protests across the Netherland censuring the Paris attack.

Abdurrahman Akbulut, one of the leading figures of the campaign, said they could not accept the using of Allah's name for an act of murder, referring the killers shouts during the shooting.

According to Akbulut, attributing terrorist attacks to Islam raises the Islamophobia, especially in Europe.

At least 12 people were killed on Wednesday when masked gunmen stormed the Paris offices of the weekly satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo, and opened fire. The French authorities have called the incident the worst terror attack in four decades.
