For some reason, Muslim supremacists can’t understand why the West hates them

maxresdefault-3A Muslim woman creates a photo series aimed at “changing for the better Americans’ perception of Islam.” Unfortunately, she thinks that showing Muslims lifting their asses to Allah in the most unlikely (anywhere but a mosque) of public places will endear themselves to non-Muslims.

All of the following photos were taken in Western cities around the world including New York, Paris, and London. After viewing them, please let me know the level of endearment toward Muslims you feel.

Miami New Times  Sana Ullah writes: “I can name so many locations I’ve prayed before, and maybe most of the places I’ve prayed have not been inside a mosque,” the 24-year-old photographer and Florida International University graduate says. “So I decided it’d be really fun to do a series where I could take pictures of people praying in locations outside of mosques.”

Places You’ll Pray started in January 2015 as a fun project but began taking on more weight in recent months, as anti-Muslim incidents spiked (a report by Georgetown University’s Bridge Initiative found 2015 saw the most of any year since the 9/11 attacks). Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump advocated banning Muslims from entering the United States following the Islamic State-inspired mass shooting in San Bernardino.

Now, Ullah hopes her photo series — which shows people praying at sites including the Grand Canyon, Universal Studios Orlando, and Central Park, as well at milestones such as high-school prom, a graduation ceremony, and a wedding — will help change how Muslims are viewed. She has posted more than 300 of the images on Instagram. Some are taken by her; others have been submitted by people around the world. Maybe people will look at them and see that peace is central to Islam, she says.

“If one person can see Muslims in a brighter light or in a positive way,” Ullah says, “I think I’ve succeeded.”  (Sorry, cupcake, this will only make people hate you more)
