Is Islam a Peaceful Religion?

As a country which has about 25% of its population as Muslims, I believe this video is relevant, to not only that percentage of Malawian muslims (most of whom are probably ignorant of the stats, people and facts quoted in the above video), but also to non-muslims, in trying to provide a clearer understanding of Islam. While there were different takes on the speech, as you can see from the comments below this article here, I believe Medhi Hasan makes a compelling argument in emphasizing that the majority of muslims are peace-loving and decent people, just as the majority of Christians, Hindu’s, Jews , Sikhs, etc are peace-loving decent human beings, and that we should all strongly reject both the terrorists, and the divisive voices which are trying to create enemity and set one person against another (us, them etc).
