A soldier’s emotional message to people who expect him to hate Muslims after he lost his leg while serving with the British Army in Iraq has gone viral.
Chris Herbert was serving with the British Army in Basra, Iraq, in 2007  when a bomb exploded next to his Land Rover blowing off his right leg. One of his friends died in the attack, while two other soldiers were also injured.

However, even after being crippled Herbert doesn’t hate Muslims and is standing against generalization, bigotry and hatred. In his brilliant Facebook post Chris explains that he was targeted by a Muslim, but listed the huge number of Islam believers who had since helped him in his recovery.
He wrote: “Getting frustrated by some people expecting racism from me, because I got blown up. Here it is: 
Yes. A Muslim man blew me up, and I lost my leg.
A Muslim man also lost his arm that day wearing a British Uniform.
A Muslim medic was in the helicopter that took me from the field
A Muslim surgeon performed the surgery that saved my life
A Muslim Nurse was part of the team that helped me when I returned to the UK
A Muslim Healthcare Assistant was part of the team that sorted out my day to day needs in rehabilitation when I was learning to walk
A Muslim taxi driver gave me a free ride the first time I went for a beer with my Dad after I came home.
A Muslim doctor offered my Dad comfort and advice in a pub, when he didnt know how to deal with my medicines and side effects.
Contrary to that,
A white brit spat in my girlfriends face for ‘fucking a cripple when you could have me [him]’
A White brit pushed my wheelchair away from a lift so he could use it first.
A White brit screamed at my Dad for parking in a disabled bay when I was in the services coming home
(Although, alot of people helped in my recovery! I dont hate white brits either! hahaha)
Point is, f*ck off. I know who I dislike, and I know who I don’t. I know who I appreciate, and I know who I don’t. If you want to hate an entire race of men and women for the actions of a few d*ckheads feel free, but don’t push your views on me, thinking I am an easy target because one douchebag decided it was my day to die.
Blaming all Muslims for the actions of groups like Daeshe and the Taliban, is like blaming all Christians for the actions of the KKK or Westboro Baptist Church.
Get a grip of your lives, hug your family and get back to work.”
According to PewResearchCenter recent surveys, Muslims mostly say that suicide bombings and other forms of violence against civilians in the name of Islam are rarely or never justified. In many cases, people in countries with large Muslim populations are as concerned as Western nations about the threat of Islamic extremism, and have become increasingly concerned in recent years.
