Fighting islamophobia can be an uphill battle considering the rhetoric against the religion but sometimes witty comments can prove to be the best way.
There has been a spike in Islamophobia since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan following the withdrawal of US troops from the country. Many are using the Taliban as an excuse to target Islam despite no substance in the terrorist organization's archaic and patriarchal interpretation of the Quran. The 9/11 attacks that triggered the Afghanistan war, also ignited the spark for Islamophobia in the United States. Islamophobes often target Muslims at the drop of a hat, but sometimes they are shut up with a witty reply. Here are some of the best clap backs we've come across and we'll certainly be needing more of these to call out Islamophobes time and again.

Sweetie everyone’s already washing their hands five+ times a day, covering their face, not shaking hands + avoiding bars. Not only are we already here, you’re all Muslim. Salam brother. https://t.co/m6MDbyRrWs— Johana Bhuiyan (@JMBooyah) April 2, 2020
