A newsreader halted her own program to beg all Muslims to take responsibility for acts of terrorism just weeks after the ‘abominable’ Brussels bombings, THE MIRROR reports.
Nadine Al-Budair, herself a Muslim, controversially begged followers of Islam to acknowledge that terrorists are no longer a rarity, and have been created by their own people.
