R036 - A gesture of courage

CORSERA – 24/7/2016

My Muslim friends draw their faith from the Koran, from their sermons, from their personal effort and the environment in which they live. The “jihadist” terrorists also draw on the same sources, Koranic preaching and incitements to live the “true Islam”. Therefore, the courageous gestures that I feel I can ask of all Muslims, is a condemnation expressed with greater firmness especially by civil society, religious movements and the vast world of mosques.

In my opinion, terrorism can be defeated through the support of the majority of Muslims who love peace and who condemn terrorism. Only in this way you can start a process of rooting out radical Islamic sentiments, where hatreds and resentments towards an enemy and colonizing west are fueled.

Hopefully Italian Muslims or those residing in Italy will accept religious and gender differences and aspire to build, together with civil society, the foundations for creating a long-term partnership in full respect of the Italian constitution without exception.
