Terror attacks are mainly happening for money and inter society matters. And I believe most of the 94% attacks you are mentioning here belong to such category. But the terror attacks by Muslim fundamentalists is the only major terrorist attack based on religion and as such it attracts the attention of the people more. people died of road accidents are much much higher than terrorist attacks. But it attracts little attention as it is a normal happening due to some negligence on the particulars concerned parties. But in religious fundamentalism the sufferers are innocent people. And as such the hue and cry are justified. Bear in mind Islam is a way of life which clearly opposes any sort of violence against innocent people, however small the violence may be. It must be collective duty of our Islam friends to oppose the fundamentalist in them and pave way to remove such stigma.

100% true, It is has become very easy to brand muslims and Islam as terrorist:With all due respect this is to inform the whole world, that as it is a misconecption about muslims that muslims are spreading terror all over the world in the way of suicide bombing, which all of the non muslims has named as "JIHAD", but i would like to make it very clear to all of you that islam is a religion of peace and it teaches the most peace full ways of living, ALLAH is most beloved to his creatures in this world even more then the love of 70 mothers and our beloved prophet HAZRAT MOHEMMED (S.A.W.) was the most loving & honest person which world has ever had, so how can be their followers could be terrorist

In his time he has proved himself as an unrelentless person to every one, even with non muslims and he teaches the same to muslims to be so gratefull to all.

Because "Islamaphobia" is something that sounds exotic and foreign, and it is easier to scare people using something exotic and foreign rather than something which is homebrewn. And the more u scare off people the more u get them into accepting laws such as laws that restrict u r personal freedom.

Most of the crime in the US where fatalities happen is from racist violence and thru gang violence in the metro city's, but then "racism" is something which sounds a lot less scary than something which comes from a far off land.

I can bet as u were a child, u r own Mom prolly scared u into not going outside at night using Jinns rather than just stating the real fact she don't want u to play outside at nite :)

if someone raises an alarm about "racism" like "Joe Hicks w/a confederate flag and a bunch of guys beatin up some ethnic Mexicans" people would be like "the cops can handle it" ......

but then when u bring up something very foreign and exotic, which common folk don't kn ...more

I can understand your pain. Had I been a Muslim, maybe, I would have also felt the same way. Beyond feeling hurt, have you tried to think what the reason is for this? Why is it that every community in the world is unanimous in this fear of Islam, although, among themselves they are absolutely dissimilar and contrasting. After all monotheist religions like Christianity and Islam have more in common among themselves and logically they would have been united against the Indian kafirs and Buddhist atheists.
Please give it a thought whether it is a conspiracy (for what purpose?) or jealousy (what is there to be jealous about?).
Also please try to understand the basic difference between all the terrorist groups, which you have mentioned, and the ones whose names have an Islamic adjective attached to them.
By the way, pronouncements of leaders like the one from Libya (see todays paper) are not exactly going to help in reducing the level of Islamophobia which you have mentioned.

Whatever others do is their concern , Non mUSLIMS expect better behaviour from muslims and zero terrorism from them and they are right , Muslims should work properly to combat whatever terrorism is there as they get so much bad name
all terror done by muslim people is associated with religion , religion teaches ant terror only .
Let them not worry how much other religious gruops indulge in terror and only look inwards to make it zero percent then only they can hope to get certificate of civilised people

1% muslim groups involve in 6% crimes while 99% non muslim groups involve in 94% of crimes.So the muslim groups involve 6 times more.
