The Politiko is sick and tired of hearing people say that he doesn’t look Muslim at all.

Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) Zia Alonto Adiong recently shared his sentiments on how people perceive the Muslim community. On his Facebook, the Politiko narrated how some people think that being a Muslim has something to do with physical attributes.

“You don’t sound or look like a Muslim.” I get this kind of remark very often. People, this not a compliment. As if being a Muslim has a certain physical attributes or manner of speaking that separates one from the rest”, he wrote on his Twitter.

He further added that the remark is “of narrow mindedness bordering racism”.
