Are Muslims safe in the USA and Europe?

Letsdiskuss


When I came to the States this past August I felt safe... the airports were not exactly friendly, nor convenient, but I never felt unsafe.

After four months mostly on a college campus, things have mostly been fine.
Perhaps today right now things may be different?
Thankfully some folks are always opening and welcoming to the new person. Some people never want anything new.

It's valid. Outside of oil and gas ventures and a couple of explicit foundation ventures (ports like Jebel Ali and airplane terminals like Dubai), far less genuine financial improvement has occurred in the oil-rich parts of the Arab world than would be normal dependent on their incredible gift of human and regular assets. The Islamic world isn't solid, and it's presumably advantageous to address moderately stable oil-rich states independently from Iraq, Iran, and Libya, again independently from other Islamic states absent much oil independently from Asian Islamic nations like Malaysia and Indonesia. How about we take a gander at the steady oil rich Arab Islamic states for the time being. I'm not a scholastic financial analyst, political researcher, or social master, however I lived in the locale from 2004-2010, maintained a few organizations there, and have involvement as a tech business visionary in the US and Europe, so I can remark specifically on a portion of the difficulties.

Since I a Muslim middle eastern and lived in many parts of the US I think I am qualified to answer this question. (Oh and I study politics too)

Some places will discriminate against Muslims and middle eastern people in general more than others. I live currently live on the west coast which is very mutli cultural and I have found so racism towards me so far,(Mahsallah) Though when I lived in a average white majority city there was a lot of racism.
Generally the smaller the population the more racists there are, the higher the population and more multi cultural(not white) there are less racists.
Also areas with more republicans are racists than areas with more democrats.

I too can't speak from experience but the one thing I can say is that the USA is more multicultural, multi-religious, and multi-ethnical than Europe. Meaning regardless of your religion you will not stand out in the society as it's already multicultural.

This does not necessarily mean a better place though. Most of the issues about immigration and whether somewhere is a good place to move to or not are not related to one's religion. Europe can very well be a better place to move to than the USA based on one's expectation and circumstances.

France and Germany have the biggest Muslim populaces in Europe (characterized as the 28 current European Union pe (characterized as the 28 current European Union part nations in addition to Norway and Switzerland). As of mid-2016, there were 5.7 million Muslims in France (8.8% of the nation's populace) and 5 million Muslims in Germany (6.1%). The EU nation in which Muslims make up the biggest offer of the populace is Cyprus: The island country's 300,000 Muslims make up around one-quarter (25.4%) of its populace, and are for the most part Turkish Cypriots with profound roots in Cyprus (and not late transients).

It depends from region to region and what kind of government and population does that particular country, state has.

Racism against Muslims has always been prevalent across the world. (Not that people of other race/religion don’t experience such discrimination, by the way!) However, 9/11 played a major role in shaping the Islamic world and how Muslims are looked at in the western countries. And that ripple is felt even till this day.

The countries where the right wing politics is more prevalent, the threat against Muslims are more evident. USA is a great example of this. When Donald Trump was elected the President of USA, he banned Muslims of selected countries to enter the country. Countries like Sweden and UK has right-wing governments. And there, the political scene is largely influenced by Muslim-related topics. Meaning, this is a rather sensitive issue that always put Muslims – especially the lower-end Muslims – at risks. Racism is common. Mosques are vandalized occasionally. And the saddest part is that such news doesn’t make it to the mainstream.

With that being said, one should also not let go of the fact that Muslim community has always gotten the wide support from people of other races. When Donald Trump banned Muslims from entering the country, there was a huge backlash not just from Americans but from around the world. The number of liberal leaders is more than right-wingers. Even amid Islamist terrorist attacks, we have seen on social media that Muslims – along with hate – receive mass support.

So yes, with the growing time, the threats for Muslims, not just in western countries but around the world, is increasing. But there has been just as much support for them from the media, government (or opposition), non-profit organizations and of course the common people…

I have lived as a Muslim in the USA for a long time, and just every so often visited and interfaced with Muslims in a couple of European nations (Italy, Germany, UK, Switzerland, Slovenia).

In view of my encounters, the USA is a superior spot for Muslims when all is said in done, yet it changes from nation to nation in Europe. Muslims in the UK have it better than state Muslims in France. For the accompanying reasons, I think the USA is better for Muslims:

The United States isn't as unyieldingly common (as in the French thought of laicite) thus you don't wind up with idiocies as you do in Europe with hijab being restricted in schools in France, state.

The historical backdrop of the Muslim people group in the USA is distinctive to that of Europe: huge numbers of the Muslims that verifiably went to the United States were college understudies and henceforth had more elevated levels of training contrasted with the Muslims in Europe. They are hence progressively prosperous, and - again to talk in sweeping statements - assets and offices (mosques, establishments and so on) for the Muslim people group appear to be more grounded in the USA.
