Re: Pope Says Islamists ‘Pervert’ Religion, Sept. 22.

The following letter was published by National Post, on Sept. 22, 2014.

I was glad to hear that Pope Francis invited other religious leaders to stand against ISIS, a group that kills in the name of God and he calls it “a grave sacrilege.” If the Pope and other leaders stand together, in order to preach the peace that every religion teaches, it will create a wave capable destroying ideologies that “pervert religion to justify violence.”

Mirza Masroor Ahmad, the leader of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community, has condemned ISIS on numerous occasions. He says, “The actions and statements of ISIS and other extremists who pretend to represent Islam, whilst spreading hatred and violence, run entirely contrary to the peaceful teachings of Islam.”
