Muslims from around the world expressed their condemnation to the Paris attacks by taking to Twitter, saying there is a difference between Islam and extremist belief.
On Friday, 13 November several organised attacks by the ISIS that occurred in Paris and its northern suburb of Saint-Denis left 129 people dead.
French President Francois Hollande called the incident an "act of war" that was organised with "internal help". He also declared "state of emergency" in the city and ordered temporary controls in France's borders.
An eyewitness at the Bataclan concert hall, which was the worst scene at the shooting night, said that before starting the mass shooting one attacker shouted "Allahu Akbar" (God is Great), The Washington Post reported.
The shooting in the concert hall killed 89 people itself.
The incident invited criticism from every nook and cranny of the world, including Muslims who felt the need to defend their religion as one that is against violence.
There are over one billion Muslims in the world. If they were all terrorists, everyone would be dead by now. Muslims are not terrorists.
