Intelligence Squared: Islam is a Religion of Peace - 6 Oct 2010

Is the rise of terrorism and violence justifiably traced to the teachings of Islam, or is this call to war a twisted interpretation of the true Muslim faith? Most of the world’s 1.5 billion Muslims are moderates who see Islamic terrorism as a violation of their sacred texts. Is it wrong to let a radical minority represent authentic Islam? Has fear blinded us to its lessons of tolerance and peace?

For the motion: Zeba Khan, Maajid Nawaz

Against the motion: Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Douglas Murray
