Comments on: French religious leaders warn against divisive Islam debate http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/2011/03/30/french-religious-leaders-warn-against-divisive-islam-debate/ Religion, faith and ethics Sat, 23 Apr 2016 23:25:07 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Umme_Ammara http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/2011/03/30/french-religious-leaders-warn-against-divisive-islam-debate/comment-page-1/#comment-30172 Thu, 31 Mar 2011 21:58:32 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/?p=20508#comment-30172 This is a great opportunity for Muslims to engage in the debate and explain to French public the beautiful teachings of Islam.

It will be wise to remove various misconceptions about Islam and explain the peaceful message given in the Qur’an.

For example the verse 60:9 commands Muslims to extend virtue to those who do not bear enmity.

The verse 5:9 enjoins to be just and fair even to the enemy and not to respond to his foul act with a foul act.

The verse 4:37 commands good treatment of everyone, from one’s parents to every human being, so that peace is established in the world

So please instead of protesting, this this opportunity to explain to everyone the message of peace given by Islam.

I wholeheartedly agree with the protests against this debate and am delighted to see members of different faiths uniting to protect religious freedom.

If the search asks questions for which there are uncomfortable answers and contradictions, then who has the problem? Why does the left-wing media make the interrogators look like criminals instead of the criminals they are interrogating. Is it because it upsets the media’s delusions about Islam and it’s too uncomfortable for them to face up to it, no matter how many times they chant the tired mantra “Islam is a religion of peace”?

Based on the news, it seems Islam is the “religion of pieces” as its purported adherents go around the world, blowing themselves and everyone around them to pieces.
