Why do people speak of Muslims as if they are a race? Or a religion?

When in reality Muslims are the followers of Islam or "one who submits to Allah"...I see our own media doing this as well! Or am I wrong about that??

  • Islam is the religion; Muslims are the followers of Islam. Just like Christianity is a religion; Christians are the followers of Christianity.
