Response to Punish a Muslim Day Letters

UK Terrorists Declared April 3 Punish a Muslim Day, but This Response Was Pure Love

Some Muslims in six communities in the UK that checked their mailbox over the weekend were in for a chilling surprise.

Certain neighborhoods in Bradford, Birmingham, Cardiff, Leicester, London and Sheffield, known for having residents who follow the Islamic way of life, received anonymous letters describing April 3 as "Punish a Muslim Day," stating that people would be awarded points for different acts of violence.

The content condemned the UK and other countries in Europe that had a large percentage of Muslims and migrants, reports the New York Times.

But then something beautiful happened. A replica of the nasty letter was issued but, this time, promoting love and acceptance of Muslims. Titled "Love A Muslim Day," instead of awarding points for violence, it's awarded points for acts of kindness. Instead of gaining 25 points for 'pulling a woman's head scarf' (as was ordered in the other letter) this one gives you 25 points for "buying a Muslim coffee and cake from an independent café."

The matter is being investigated by UK police, working with the counter-terrorism unit. Until it's resolved, let's kill 'em with kindness, as Islam has taught us.
