As an independent journalist and therefore a part of the much-despised “mass media” to which Seidu Malik, of the RTP Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, disparagingly referred in his Dec. 9 Point of View “Don’t let massacre divide us,” I am offended by his ridiculous assertion that the “mass media” are somehow unable to “give a balanced representation of Islam.”
No member of the media I am aware of is gunning down people at holiday parties, concerts and cafes, blowing up airplanes, staging mass public beheadings or burning captives alive.
Sorry ,but it is Malik’s fellow Muslims who are committing these barbarous acts, and no amount of blaming the messenger will change that disturbing fact.
