- “If you don’t use your voice, then you’re giving your consent. This video gives Islam a more human face. Islam is not terrorism. Non-Muslims want to believe that, so we need to hear it from Muslims. No deep hatred is going to change overnight, but it’s a step in the right direction.” Lilorchid82

It’s more than I can even describe, this feeling of knowing there are others, from my nation, my faith that are doing more to represent us in a truer light, true to who we are as a people.

- You’ve put together a great list of artists here, with such simple but very emotional lyrics that within a space of a few minutes, tell people who we are and how much its hurts to be labeled in this way. I couldn’t help but see myself and my family in all the various depictions, in the schools, the ruck shah driver, the waiter, the elderly gentle men motioning with both his hands saying “This Is Not Us” reminded me of my Dad.” Imran Siddique
- “Beautiful ensemble of one the most beautiful young voices of the East. And the message is clear, we are all human beings and strive every day for peace. Very well performed.

- “The melody is lovely and if the majority stands behind the meaning of their lyrics, perhaps there is hope for everyone to live in peace.” Phantombucketmouse
- “I weep in empathy with these good folk, who so clearly show their anguish at what the terrorists do in their name.” Patientfaith
- “I can only hope and pray that this song gets international viewing. Yeah it’s sappy – along the lines of John Lennon’s “we are the world” stuff – but HEY it’s a START to see these young Pakistani’s willing to put THEIR NAMES AND FACES to what can be viewed around the world as a repudiation of Al’Qaida’s view of radical Islam.” Peskemon
- “This should also serve as a message to the western world as well. Muslims saying “This is not us” to try to stop terrorism should remind us that most Muslims are innocent.” Ndchriste

I am really proud of your compgain and please do not give up. it is very important for the sake of our future.
Inshallah every Pakistani will say “Yeh Hum Neheen.
Congs to your whol team for your excellent work.
Dear Mr. Wasim
I came across this interesting idea of condemning the terrorism and bringing an awareness among the Pakistani masses about the terrorism and making them to stand up against it. I just loved it. I cast my vote on the website but as soon as I came on the website my first feeling was that this website is addressing Pakistani public in general , so why is it not in URDU . I know you can toggle it on the to Urdu from English and vice-versa but I think it would be far more effective and appealing if its primary language was urdu firstly and then one could change it around to English as per one’s choice and ease of reading. Although I am from UK but that’s how I feel about the website and I felt like sharing my honest and sincere thoughts about it. Rest is just brilliant … It’s a brilliant concept and InshAllah it will bring its output very soon.
