It is well recognised that Islam played a pivotal role in kick-starting the
Renaissance in Europe, signalling the end of the Dark Ages. In its rich
1400 year history, Islam has made huge spiritual, intellectual and cultural
contributions for the betterment of human civilisation. The Arabic word
“Islam” means “peace and “voluntary submission to the One God.” Islam
has over 1.2 billion followers around the globe.
In light of these facts is it credible that this very same faith could promote
indiscriminate terror and destruction in the modern era.
