The real issue is not whether a perpetrator is brown or Muslim, or whether an incident is, or should be, categorized as terrorism or not. It is instead about how these kinds of attacks are constantly used to demonize others and spread hate and racism against a whole community.
Terrorism is a complex issue where one must look into intent based on political or religious motivations. We know that it is not up to the public to decide the nature of violent attacks, but the public’s reactions do not form in a vacuum. They are socially constructed via what they are being fed from social media, news outlets, and public figures.
Canada is a multicultural society that derives its strength from its diversity and openness towards minorities, refugees, and asylum seekers. Our politicians and responsible media men and women should be wise and cautious while tackling such sensitive issues. They should get their facts straight and avoid rumors before tarnishing innocent communities.
