5 ways how WTC affected the Muslims in America

9th September 2001, a group of Muslim extremists called Al-Qaeda crashed planes into the northern and southern towers of the World trade center. Over 3,000 people died, including rescuers, as the world watched in horror. As the largest buildings in the world collapsed, so did the lives of Muslims living in America. After the downfall of the world trade center, life in America completely changed for the Muslims, and had become one of the most targeted communities in our society. Here is how the Muslims were affected in America

Interrogations

After the 9/11 incident, the Muslims were primarily targeted and were subject to interrogations. Over 100 Muslims were interrogated every single day, some of them even multiple times. They were kept in specially made cells under harsh conditions, and would use strict measures if the person had no answer to their questions, such as water boarding and solitary confinement. Due to this, many Muslims in America had now become traumatized, and some of them even developed mental disorders. They were given no medical treatment for overcoming their disorders or trauma.

Deported

One of the things that increased rapidly after the world trade center attack was the number of deported people from the country. Even when some of the Muslims were engaged in helping the victims they were considered terrorists who were supposedly trying to gather information. Such controversies were the cause of deportation of around 500,000 people, where the majority of them were Muslims established in America. They were now forced to leave their country for helping the citizens in need.

One of the many things that Muslims suffered after the 9/11 incident was unemployment. Almost every Muslim who had a job in an American company was either demoted to the lowest rank in the company or was fired from his/her job. Many people who tried to get some sort of a job were either given the jobs of a janitor, or were forced on the streets as advertisers of a particular firm. Their wages were minimum, and the people who were not able to get any jobs were forced to live on the streets owing to the increasing debts they had to pay since they had no money left.

Religion

Muslims used to worship their religion freely bit it became nonexistent after the incident. In fact, any Muslim found practicing their religion was considered a terrorist, and were detained for several days if found worshiping even in their own homes. This made practicing religion for Muslims almost impossible, and many of them were even forced to convert to other religions. Life was truly unfair to them.

Deaths

A lot of Muslims died following the 9/11 incident, not because of natural reasons, but were rather killed or tortured to death. Muslim Americans were not even safe in their own homes, as unidentified people would force their way into their homes, killing all men, women and children residing. A Muslim person would usually be found dead in their own car, as a result of a stabbing from a knife. Over a thousand Muslims were killed within 1 week of the 9/11 incident.

Why 9/11 Still Breaks Hearts? Here are 5 Reasons!

The 9/11 incident was certainly a big tragedy, whether you are one of the victims or some person living thousands of miles away. The incident has broken so many hearts, to see the giant buildings fall to the ground and you can do nothing about it. Indeed, 9/11 was a dark day for the whole world, and to this day it still breaks millions of hearts whenever the term “world trade center” is mentioned. After all these years, what is it that brings even the toughest to tears when they hear of the horrific incident? Here are a few reasons why the term 9/11 still breaks many hearts.

Deaths of the Victims

There is no greater moment of sadness when you see someone die in front of you. And for people to witness the deaths of thousands of people, many of whom were hard working people, is just heart breaking. Among the people who died during the 9/11 attacks, a number of young people, as well as children were involved, who had their life ended without even seeing the world. Having so many people die in such a short time is very painful to watch, especially when there are over 2 billion people watching, and yet no one can do anything about it.

Deaths of Rescuers

Even greater tragedy than the deaths of the victims was the deaths of the people who died while helping the victims, many of which were people from the armed forces, the police and the firefighters, who suffered the most deaths during the rescue operations. An even greater tragedy is that some of those firefighters died as a result of tripping and getting trapped under the rubble and being crushed by the weight during the final moments of the operation, but since they died after the incident, the government decided not to give their families any aid.

Conspiracy Theories

It is sad how one of the most tragic incidents took place in America, and yet is bombarded with controversies from all around the area, and the government itself is not able to make a clear statement as to what happened. The affected families who are waiting for an answer are yet to hear from the authorities, but still have received no word from the officials.

Wars

As many of us may have known, America began wars with several Middle Eastern countries right after the 9/11 incident. So, whenever someone hears about the death of their loved one in one of these countries, they go back to the memory of the WTC incident, and wonder how the situation would have been so much different if the incident wouldn’t have happened, and how their loved ones would still be with them.

Muslim Community

As the 9/11 incident was primarily blamed on the Islamic extremist group Al Qaeda, many people in America, and other countries, have portrayed a bad image for the Muslim community in general. Muslims in America have much less civil rights than the normal citizens of the country. The Muslim community has truly suffered as they cannot live freely. This is very heartbreaking for them because none of them actually had to do anything with the event, but are still being punished for something they did not do.
