Sometimes when people are criticizing the Islamic faith, you get someone come along and claim that people are Islamophobic. But do you actually have Islamophobia? Take this short test to find out.
1. Do you get a feeling of uncontrollable panic whenever you are exposed to a Muslim or a Qu’ran?
2. Do you feel like you have to do anything to get away from Muslims and Qu’rans?
3. When exposed to a Muslim or a Qu’ran, do you suffer the inability to function normally?
4. When exposed to a Muslim or Qu’ran, do you suffer any of the following:
A feeling of panic
Feeling dizzy or lightheaded
Hot or cold flashes
Trembling or shaking
A dry mouth
The inability to speak
Chest pain or tightness
A sense of impending doom
A choking feeling
Numbness or tingling
If not, you probably don’t have Islamophobia.
A phobia is a lasting and irrational fear of something; a real phobia of the Islamic faith would mean that you suffer from some of these symptoms when exposed to Muslims or the Qu’ran. If you are free from these symptoms than the claim that you are Islamophobic is false.
