Why Do Some People Base On Bad Group On Everyone?

There are a lot of issues in the world, but one of our issues is about the travel ban that

was put on the Muslim countries. People have horrible assumptions of Muslims because of the

killing that has happened by the groups called the Taliban, al-Qaeda, and ISIS. Throughout this

administration, there is a lot of blame on the former administration. All in all, the meaning of

Islam means peace, and these terrorist are not spreading peace they are spreading hate and

disturbance around the world. There is no need for a travel ban. It is not fair that a nation gets

blamed for a small groups actions.

First off I would like to explain what Islam is. The meaning of Islam is the submission or

surrender to Allah (God). The root word Salam means peace and safety. The way these terrorist

groups is portraying Islam is in a horrible way. There is a saying in the Quran were you had

killed an innocent person. There is a verse in the Quran 5:32 “Because of that, we decreed upon

the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or corruption in the land — it is

as if he had slain humanity entirely. And whoever saves one — it is as if he had saved humanity

entirely.” That means that if you have killed one person you have killed all of the humanity. But

people think that because of what the Taliban and ISIS are doing is a part of Islam, it is not. At
Dambatta 2

the time it is sad that people do not have an open mind about what the Quran says. Just to clarify

not real practicing Muslim condones these horrible things that these terrorist groups are doing.

When people talk about the Sharia law and how they don’t want to follow it is also stated in the

Quran” For citizens, they must obey the established authorities (e.g. the courts, the police, etc.).

They must obey the law of the land as long as it does not violate God's law.” The meaning of that

is where ever you are you follow whatever law or rules and regulation there are, but the only

time that you don’t have to do that is when is goes against god’s word. So in other words that are

why the majority of the Muslims in the world are living in peace because they are following

what they are being told. Sometimes when people read the Quran then tend to misunderstand it

in the most extreme way. But when you get someone that knows and understand the Quran, it is a

beautiful thing. There is also a statistic about Muslim “:While the world’s population is projected

to grow 32% in the coming decades, the number of Muslims is expected to increase by 70% –

from 1.8 billion in 2015 to nearly 3 billion in 2060. In 2015, Muslims made up 24.1% of the

global population. Forty-five years later, they are expected to make up more than three-in-ten of

the world’s people (31.1%).”So with that being said, more and more people see what Islam is

really like. It is also said that Muslim families are one of the most influential people, and the

reason why that is being said is that they are high achievers and also where ever they are at they

don’t cause trouble. In Islam that is what is said you follow to laws of the land that you are on.

There so many things that are wrong with this travel ban. I would like to point out a

couple. This travel ban is pointed towards all Muslim countries. This travel ban is not a

representation of what this country is. This country is supposed to allow you to practice your

religion freely without you being judged or looked at some way. That is not what this country

represents. Also the safety of the Muslims American in the United States. Even when this
Dambatta 3

country was going through the elections many Muslim American were scared and are scared for

their safety .putting this travel ban makes it even worst for people traveling out of the United

States worst. Because you never know people are probably going to start attacking them for what

this administration is doing. They are not thinking of the ramifications of what is going to

happen to the American people when they travel out to do the United States, and supposedly

president Donald Trump at first he said “The administration has been goaded into replying, “No,

no, no — this has nothing to do with Islam.” It points to the 85 percent of Muslim aliens globally

who are unaffected by the orders. It stresses that the countries with the world’s largest Muslim

populations — Indonesia, Egypt, Pakistan. — Are not touched by the orders. It notes that

countries covered by the order were first cited in legislation signed by Obama, not because they

were Muslim but because they had unstable or hostile regimes that defy reliable immigrant

screening. It emphasizes that of the original seven Islamic countries, one has now been exempted

from the temporary ban — i.e., that the trajectory is to affect fewer Muslims, not more.It is was

to be looked there are a terrorist group amongst all of the religions.

What people think about this travel ban” That’s because the ban, while doing virtually

nothing to deter terrorist attacks in this country, aids the recruitment efforts of the Islamic State

and other extremist groups by substantiating their case that anti-Islamic bigotry thrives in the

United States.’ this has also affected the people who are in danger everyday living in their

country. This also affects the refugees that have applied for a visa to come into this country. To

add to that this has also affected the people that have come here legally. They can travel outside

of the country and come back in without being harassed by the TSA, and they have all the legal

documents to come back into this country, just because of where they are coming from.

In conclusion to this paper, this travel ban is not what this country represents. Almost all

of the people in this county come from another county. And it is not fair to blame one group of

people’s violence for a whole religion. If the whole religion were violent, the whole world would

be in chaos. But the majority of the Muslims that live in the world are living in peace. A lot of

times the Muslims themselves are afraid for their lives also and the reason why is because people

who don’t have the education and don’t know anything about the religion while just go off on

anyone who has a scarf or someone who has a Muslim name.
