The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has declared that Islam is the most peaceful religion of the world.
In a statement released last week, the United Nations body said it had carried out joint study with International Peace Foundation to review all religions of the world and find out which was most peaceful amongst all.
After six months of study and analysis, they have concluded that Islam is the most peaceful religion.
Robert McGee, head of comparative studies wing of International Peace Foundation declared in a press conference that:
“After six months of rigorous study and analysis, we have concluded that Islam is the most peaceful religion.”
When asked about the terror attacks being carried out in the name of Islam, including the recent ones in Dhaka and Baghdad, the UNESCO official denied that it had anything to do with Islam, saying, ‘Terror has no religion, Islam means peace’.
To document this official recognition, UNESCO will issue certificates to interested Muslim bodies, which can choose to display them at various places like madarsas, Islamic study centers, mosques, halal stores, slaughterhouses, etc.
This latest finding by UNESCO, should at least serve as proof to critics who have blamed the religion for the various terrorist attacks being perpetuated around the world.
Islam was founded over 1400 Years Ago in Saudi Arabia through the Prophet Hood of Prophet Mohamed (Pbh) and has spread to all parts of the World with its current population standing at more than 2 bilion.
According to history, Prophet Mohammed had a tough time pushing the doctrine of Islam in the days when greater part of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia was populated with idol worshippers with some being Jews and Christians.
After going through difficult moments he succeeded in introducing the religion to Saudis and beyond. Today Islam is considered as the fastest growing Religion in the World as narrated by Imams and researchers in the United States, Europe, Asia and Africa.
