Yes, I know. I'm afraid Muslims have become the new Jews. There must be some way to stop the madness.

Ina Cawl my mother tribal region which is called Ogaden and it is located in western part of Ethiopia is faceing many injustice and humility
and no foreign news are accepted thereand forty percent of the women there are raped by Ethiopian Armies
and Kashmir which is muslim region at the top of India also feeling injustice by the way 100 thousand Indian armies are located there which makes Kashmir one of the biggest region where armies are located there
and by the way let us do not forget China which makes what West wrong small compared to it
i mean Xinjiang which is located at the western part of China and mostly populated by Turkish Muslim
Beard is forbidden for Men and Hijab is forbidden for Women
even Fasting and Reciting Koran is also forbidden there
