Hello all, I posed this question to a few forums, including a gambling forum, and a Muslim forum. As to the poll results , I noted that Muslims agree and disagree that Islam is a religion of peace. In addition, the majority of those on my gambling forum disagreed that Islam is a religion of peace, and did so by a wide margin.
I ask posters to give their honest opinion. Additionally I’m not Muslim, so I will ask the poster to imagine hearing the statement of “Islam is a Religion of Peace” from a Muslim in the live world as opposed to on this internet forum.
The following is from a transcript of a Oxford Union debate about Islam being a religion of peace
“Ladies and gentleman, let me just say this to you, think about what the opposite of the motion is, if you vote tonight opposition’s motion (Is Islam a religion of peace?), Islam isn’t the religion of peace,it is religion of war, of violence, of terror, of aggression but the people who follow Islam me, my wife, my retired parents, my six-year-old child but one point eight million of your fellow British residents and citizens of one point two billion people across the world, your fellow human beings, are all followers, promoters, believers in the religion of violence? Do you really think that”
Many blessings to all
