On today’s episode of humans are awesome, two Nigerian developers, Timi Ajiboye and our very own Ire Aderinokun created a website (muslimscondemn.com) that contains information on all the cases of Muslims speaking up against terrorism. It all started with this tweet.
classmate: why dont muslims condemn things
me: *goes home makes 712 page long list of Muslims Condemning Things with sources*
me: fight me pic.twitter.com/sDhwUMIAK1

Author, Heraa Hashmi, was fed up with people saying Muslims do not condemn acts of terrorism and other wrongdoings wrongfully done in the name of Islam. She decided to take matters into her own hands and created a 712-page spreadsheet chronicling thousands of terrorist acts condemned by Muslims.
What’s better than a spreadsheet? A website. Ire, who’s a UI designer and front end developer, and Timi, a full stack web and mobile developer, saw Heraa’s tweet and decided to make some magic. They took Heraa’s spreadsheet and used it to develop a searchable, easy to navigate website.
The site is really sleek and loads fast. The different cases are arranged as cards with no excess frills- just easy to access information. Users can search for cases ranging from Boko Haram, ISIS, the 2015 November Paris attack and even the 2016 Brussels bombings.
Muslims Condemn can also be viewed as a full screen mobile application. All you have to do is add the website to your home screen on iOS and Android and you’re good to go.

How cool is it that people from opposite ends of the earth can come together and use technology to create magic like this?
