There are criminals in every religious community; and they should be treated only as criminals without any reference to their religions. As in other religious populations, in the over 1.5 billion-strong global Muslim community, there are bad elements who should not be allowed to define the religion of Islam even if they shout Allahu Akbar to justify their misdeeds. The vast majority of people in all religious traditions are peaceful and peace loving. For a better world, harmony and understanding among them are inevitable. Trump has used hateful anti-Muslim rhetoric as one of his strategies to mobilise his supporters and to drive a wedge between Muslims and non-Muslims. Therefore, dispelling myths and misunderstandings about Islam and Muslims is important to help disabuse people's minds in respect of the negative perceptions about the religion and its adherents. Conscientious Muslims and non-Muslims should play their part to make sure it happens.
