French Muslims attending Catholic Mass will help denounce Islam as violence advocates but in a minor way. Although many people will see it as a positive the vast majority will overlook it as a very little gesture. It will help in a little bit of change but a lot more has to be done in the long run.
Islam has become more criticised around the world because of their small number of radical members wreaking violence and havoc across the world. After attacks, like the one in the Catholic Church, it instills more fear within the world that Muslims are a violent group of people who have little tolerance for other religions. When the group of French Muslims showed support by attending Catholic mass, they were making a statement to show that not all Muslims are violent and intolerant. They claim that Islam is a peaceful religion, and this is a step in proving that point. The more Muslims that show their solidarity with other religions, the more they will outnumber the few radicals who are dominating the headlines.
The Muslims that attended the Catholic Mass to show support for the victims of recent terrorist attacks in France should help improve the image of Islam. Many have complained that Muslims are not doing enough to denounce terrorism. By showing solidarity with Catholics, these Muslims are demonstrating that they too denounce violence in the name of Islam.
Yes, events such as French Muslims attending Catholic Mass to show support in light of recent attacks will help to denounce Islam as advocates of violence. Any events such as this where Muslims come together with others can help denounce teh belief that Islam advocates violence. More such events should be held.
