Turkish protests and police response - compared with...

Check out the pictures of how Turkish police responds to protests and media headlines about it

And then compare it with what I'm about to show you!

And then think!

TURKEY Mine Disaster protest pictures in the media:

Some headlines from media regarding Turkish protests at the mine explosion:
Now, some pictures from the Egyptian protests which were forcibly cleared up by the Egyptian army under the orders of Gen. Abdel Fatah Al Sisi:

And then check out the media headlines regarding these pictures:

All ordered and approved by: -

The reaction of the media outlets on the brutality you witnessed above?

Have a look:

The point to be noted here is the gentleness with which media reports show the bloodiest of massacres. If you want more examples of those, I could have posted the barrel bombing of the Syrian regime and how gently reprimanding the media and western officials are.

And when it comes to a kick by the aide of a PM in Turkey, or water cannons shot at protesters (which doesn't kill anybody by the way), the media goes crazy and all hyper about Erdogan and how cruel he is, and how unpopular and what not.

It's just their own desires and wishes being manifested through their actions. If only the Muslims would open the eyes, see through the facade of "civilized responses" and be active about reporting injustices fairly - and reporting justice fairly.

Unfortunately, we close our eyes and follow the mainstream - and start condemning what the mainstream is condemning. Why are we so afraid to challenge the status quo?

A hadith comes to mind:

Indeed, it has been authentically narrated from the Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu ‘alaihiwasallam) in the Saheeh Hadeeth [Ibn Maajah, kitaab al fitan 3986] and also [Sahih Muslim :The Book of Faith (Kitab Al-Iman): Book 1 : Hadith 270], who said:

Bada Al-Islamu ghariban (Islam began as strange)
Wa sa ya-’udhu ghariban (and it will return strange)
kama bada`aa (as it began)
Fa tooba lil ghuraba (so tooba [glad tidings] to the strangers)

« بدأ الإسلام غريبًا، وسيعود غريبًا كما بدأ، فَطُوبي للغرباء »
Bada Al-Islamu ghariban wa sa ya-’udhu ghariban kama bada`aa fa tooba lil ghuraba
(Islam began as something strange and it will return strange as it began, so glad tidings for the strangers).
