A video posted on YouTube recently showed a Muslim man, who was blindfolded, and standing in a public square in Paris, just days after the horrific attacks, with two placards. 

One said, "I'm a Muslim, but I'm told I'm a terrorist", and the other said, "I trust you, do you trust me? If yes, then hug me."

One by one, people walked up to him and hugged him, some with tears in their eyes.

After removing his blindfold, he said, "A terrorist is a terrorist, someone willing to kill another human being over nothing," he added, "A Muslim would never do that. Our religion forbids it."
