The nearly two-minute video features five Pakistani Muslims expressing their empathy for victims in Paris while also citing their own country's experience battling terrorism. It was posted on November 15 by Pakistani Comedians and now has more than 60,000 shares and over 25,000 likes on Facebook.

"As you know may know, on the 13 of November the French capital saw barbaric acts of terror. And we'd like you to know that we are just as shocked and horrified as everyone else around the world. And we're constantly praying for your safety and security. We are actually one of the few nations who completely understand what you guys are going through. Why? Because incidents like these are really common in Pakistan.

ALSO: Anonymous Has Begun its Attack on ISIS

The comedians reference the 2014 Taliban attacks on a school in Peshawar, Pakistan that left 141 students and staff dead, according to BBC. The attack, which became known as the Peshawar school massacre, was one the worst displays of violence in the country's history.

Terrorism and Islam

The comedians explain that they, as Muslims, should not be apologetic for the attacks in Paris.

We can't be held responsible for the actions of a few deranged individuals who somehow claim to be like us. Let me put that in perspective for you. That's like blaming all Germans for the actions of Hitler. Or for that matter, blaming all Chinese people for the actions of Mao. Or blaming the Russians for the actions of Stalin.

The video also states a surprising statistic: Muslim nations are victims of the most terror attacks. And this is true. Seven of the top 10 countries facing terrorism are Muslim, according to the Independent. Therefore, the speakers plead with viewers not to generalize Muslims or hold reservations about accepting refugees in their countries.

"Now it's easy to blame those refugees who are coming to Europe en masse. But you have to understand that they are running away from the same people who are carrying out these attacks," one speaker says.

However, despite their pleas, a new surge of Islamophobia is apparent around the world. In the U.S., more than half of state governors have openly stated that Syrian refugees are not welcome, including Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal.
