The September 11, 2001 attacks were the most deadly international terrorist attack in history and the largest attack on United States territory since the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. 9/11 attacks was about series of airline hijacking and suicide attacks committed by 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda who had targeted some territories in the United States of America. First effect
Discrimination of some Muslim people in USA Specific research support: (Quote from the article) Since Muslim Americans are part of American society, negative attitudes and discrimination would have detrimental effects not only on the recipients of the negative expression (Abu-Ras & Suarez, 2009: Rippy & Newman, 2006; Kira et al., 2010), but also on society at large.
According to me 9/11 attacks really had a bad impact on Muslim people in the USA as well as all over the world. Muslim people experienced a lot of discrimination 9/11 and still experiencing it.
Second effect: Most of the Americans started thinking that all Muslims are terrorists and American Muslims had to face a bad time. They had to prove that they were not terrorists but wise citizens of the United States. Specific research support: (Quote from article)
Analysts note that many Muslims have made efforts to prove their loyalty to the United States. ADDITIONAL SUPPORT: Some Sikhs who wore Turban were also mistreated because they resembleed like Muslims.
Third effect: The 9/11 event changed the way Americans looked at Muslims because the terrorists who attacked were Muslims. Jihadi people were responsible for the attacks and not all the Muslim and Muslims in the United States experienced humiliation because of the same. Many Americans thought that Muslims are not trustworthy people and therefore adherents of the Muslim faith were harassed all over the United States. Specific research support:
“The 9/11 attackers were labeled “Muslim terrorists” and evil personified was given a Muslim face.”
