Yeh hum naheen – this is not us

“Yeh hum naheen” means “this is not us.” The song is a statement that the violence of terrorism is not Islam. Terrorism and violence are not simply Islamic issues. They are issues of humanity. So maybe we should see the video and hear the words as a reminder that any violence is not us, regardless of our ethnicity, race or religion. To act with violence is to act contrary to our true nature, our human nature. Authentic humanity is nonviolent. So why do we live as less than who we truly are? Why do we see others as less than who they truly are?
