Letter: The name should not matter

If a person with an Islamic sounding name commits an atrocity you hear: “Radical Islam, terrorist, jihadist.”

If a person with a Christian sounding name commits an atrocity you hear: “Demented, deranged, racist.”

Murder is murder and terrorism is terrorism no matter how the name is spelled.
