Imams for peaceful Islam rally

Bringing a message of peace, a group of 60 Imams from several European countries have started a bus tour throughout the continent, visiting cities that have been affected by terrorist attacks.

The move came after the widespread criticism of Muslim community, ‘not doing enough’ to prevent the radicalization of youth.

Condemning extremism and religious fundamentalism, the imams seek to share their message of a peaceful Islam, according to Deutsche Welle.

The bus tour, called the “March of Muslims against Terrorism” departed from Paris on Saturday (8.07.2017) with prayers at a site on the Champs-Elysées where a policeman was killed, and a pedestrian wounded, earlier this year by an Islamist militant (Photo: illustration)
