London bombings (1)

AN forwarded the text of the Friday sermon of the head of the Ahmadiyya Community in the form of a press release condemning the attacks.

We mustn't forget, however, that the same disasters are a daily occurrence in Baghdad. We are living in the same world and should condemn equally brutality wherever it occurs. The USA continues to refer to 9/11 even though they have since far exceeded it in terms of slaughter of the innocents.
We are right that these monsters are defaming Islam with their atrocious acts. I do feel uncomfortable, though, at excessive reaction.
Fifty lives lost in Baghdad merit hardly a mention, whereas in London it is an international outrage. There is no minute's silence for them. That upsets me. We only care for our own.
Wasalaam
