Thank Muslim Who Aided Civilians During Paris Terrorism Attacks


Target: Lassana Bathily

Goal: Thank Lassana Bathily for his bravery in saving civilians during a terrorist attack.

The city of Paris was under siege for three days when terrorists, armed with guns, killed civilians and harbored hostages. A Jewish supermarket became a target for attacks, but one man, a practicing Muslim from Mila, protected several civilians by hiding them in a refrigerator. He has been hailed as a hero for his actions, and thanks to overwhelming support, Lassana Bathily has been granted French nationality. Please sign this petition and thank Bathily for his actions.

Paris was under attack by terrorists for three days, where 12 people from satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo were killed, along with a police officer, and four hostages whose lives were taken at a Jewish supermarket. After the attacks, citizens and world leaders participated in a march to show solidarity and support for freedom of expression and for the lives that were lost. Since the event, security has been heightened in the entire country. The attacks on Paris have ended, but the healing will take years to complete.

Bathily played a huge role in protecting citizens during a terrorist attack on a Jewish supermarket. When he witnessed clients and employees running away, he knew something was wrong. As an employee, he knew the layout of the market and he hid several civilians in the cold storage room. He turned off the refrigeration system, and fled to find police officers. Bathily gave the officers information regarding the layout of the supermarket, allowing them to rescue the hostages. While four civilians were killed in the event, Bathily’s actions helped save many innocent lives from being lost.

Bathily is a practicing Muslim who believes that all humans are his brothers, regardless of religion. As Paris mourns over the lives that were lost, it is crucial to remember that all human beings are both capable of cruelty and compassion. Please sign this petition and thank Lassana Bathily for his bravery and kindness.


Dear Lassana Bathily,

The world knows of your courageous actions during the terrorist attacks at a Jewish supermarket, and it is thanks to your bravery that you were granted French citizenship. Your actions are extremely noteworthy, as the terrorist attacks were conducted by Muslim extremists.

I hope that everyone knows that not all Muslims are capable of such violent acts, and that the terrorist attacks conducted in Paris were done by those who were cruel and heartless. Your actions serve as a reminder than humans are as varied as the colors of the rainbow. There are generous people, evil people, and indifferent people. I am merely grateful that you were there to save those who were in harm’s way. You prevented the loss of innocent lives and were crucial in saving those who were trapped.

    Thank you, what you did was brave and means some families were spared awful news that day

    I wish that good Muslims like Mr. Bathily could convince their extremists to stop giving all Muslims a terrible stigma in the world, just as I wish decent Christians could do the same with Christian extremists, and decent Jewish people could stop what the Zionist terrorist state of Israel is doing to the stigmatizing of all Jews. Isn’t there enough hatred in the world anyway, without religious extremists spreading more and more? Imagine?

  3. Dear Mr Bathily,
    ( pls pardon my spelling)
    Salaam Alechem!
    Shurkirerron my friend for being a man & wonderful human being!!
