The Australian Muslim community should not feel any guilt for the Sydney hostage drama…

Social comment:

The Sydney hostage drama yesterday where three people died was caused by a lone wolf nutter, not by an organised terrorist group. Police and support authorities all performed well and the situation could have been worse.

The two hostages who died in the Sydney siege have been named as Katrina Dawson, 38, and the manager of the Lindt cafe Tori Johnson aged 34. The gunman at the centre of a 16-hour siege at a cafe in Sydney’s CBD was also killed.

HUNDREDS have taken to an online forum to comfort an Australian who unnecessarily apologised for the Sydney siege yesterday.

One Redditor, username Adorkable95, created a Reddit post headlined, “As an Australian Muslim, I just wanted to say I’m sorry.”

“I just wanted to say that I’m really sorry about the situation in Sydney,” the post read.

“Just know that every single Muslim I know is disgusted by this and we stand with you all against these atrocities.”

The user wrote how it was necessary to speak out against evil and shared their love for Australia, along with the grim realities of growing up elsewhere.

“Australia is my home, I’ve never even been to any other country and I’ll always want what’s best for Australia.
