I have no education on how Muslims are bad. I think that all religion is good religion. Instead of singling yourself out because your Muslim try other approaches to make friends. If your interested in certain music, hobbies, or whatever you do for fun bring those things up in conversation. There are a lot of classes you can take that help make friends.
I have nothing against Muslims. The global issue being faced is not so much "Islamophobia" as it is the world getting fed up with religious violence in specific, which religion is irrelevant; be it a Muslim radical, a Christian radical or an insane member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, people are sick of people hurting and killing each other in the name of religion.

You may be surprised to find that you can make many friends in the secular crowd; atheists are very accepting of believers as long as they are peaceful. There are "angry atheists", but avoiding them is much the same as avoiding angry believers.

If you'd like to discuss this further, my inbox is always open.

I can only speak for myself, but religion never mattered to me in my friends. Maybe you are looking in the wrong place? Focus on things you like and hobbies. And then try find people with similar interests.Just be yourself. Good luck!
