A woman who shares a name with San Bernardino shooter Tashfeen Malik says she's getting slammed with anti-Islam threats -- and that's AFTER she made it clear to all ... she's not a terrorist.
Malik tells TMZ after the shooters were identified Wednesday night, she was blasted on Twitter with hateful messages like "glad ur dead u whore."
She tried to quickly clear up the confusion and tweeted, "unfortunately the woman in the San Bernardino shooting has the same name as me ... I would appreciate if you all would stop with the hate mail."
That only made matters worse -- Malik says people angrily responded with anti-Islam sentiments ... "all Muslims are terrorists" and "you're still a terrorist because you're Muslim."
She stands firm, saying she won't change her Twitter name or privacy settings.
