This September 11th Muslim Americans are planning to celebrate their sacrificial festival while the rest of the country mourns one of the most horrific days in United States history. This Festival honors the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice his son, as an act of submission to Allah’s command.
Some believe This festival is offensive to those 2,996 people who were killed and over 6,000 injured on September 11, 2001 when radical Muslim terrorists hijacked four commercial airliners and flew them into the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, destroying the Twin Towers completely and severely damaging the headquarters of the US Department of Defense.
This might not have looked as disrespectful as its now, if it wasn’t sacrificial festival celebrated on the day when thousands of lives were taken by the man who said that it was Allah’s will to take all those innocent lives. Obama administration hasn’t made an official statement about the matter but sounds are coming out that president is going declare that it’s every Muslims right to celebrate the festival even on this day and he will most probably join the celebration with Muslim community.
