Ramadan Bombathon Scorecard – Day 23, 2016. Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and the month in which the Quran was revealed. Fasting during the month of Ramadan is one of the Five Pillars of Islam. The month is spent by Muslims fasting during the daylight hours from dawn to sunset. This year it runs from 6 June to 6 July inclusive — still a week to go.
Muslims often insist that other religions are just as violent as theirs and that the bigger problem is “Islamophobia.” We put that narrative to the test each Ramadan with a running count of ALL terror attacks, categorized by motive.
It’s far easier to act as if critics of Islam have a problem with Muslims as people than it is to accept the uncomfortable truth that Islam is different.
