“I used to actually hate Muslims”.
John Dutcher, 61 of Omaha, Nebraska has admitted in an interview with KETV, that he used to hate Muslims.
His hatred even led him to the extent of him desiring to “put a pig’s head on a mosque”. This was however all to change after a group of Muslim refugees moved into his apartment building.
He never used to like his previous neighbours due to their ill behaviour, however he says his Muslim neighbours were a surprising relief.
“They took the hatred out of me. I never knew how badly someone could hate someone they don’t even know”.
This is an amazing example of how hearts can change through simply interactions.
As Allah says in the Quran, “Perhaps Allah will place friendship between you and those whom you were once enemies. Allah is all Powerful and Allah is Forgiving and Merciful” (Quran 60:7).
