Letter to the editor Questions about Islam and the Koran Thank you to Aruba Mahmud ( Observer, Dispelling myths about Islam, June 27) for drawing attention burberry eu to the Islamophobic experiences encountered in and elsewhere.

I sorry she faced so much anti Muslim sentiment. ns know the local Muslim community consists of peace loving Muslims known for their involvement in the city for their charitable acts. Since she says she willing to answer questions, allow me to ask a few. Is it really true the terrorist attacks she refers to go fundamentally against the teachings of Islam and even, as she puts it, all the tenets of our [Muslim] religion wonder about this since I remember reading the Koran Surah 9 entitled (verse 5): when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolators wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush the burberry us store previous Surah ( Spoils of War, verse 12), Allah is quoted as saying, will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them. it be that the violence described in these Koranic verses in the Muslim holy book is the source and inspiration for the attacks by ISIS? I think of other statements I read in the Koran. when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, smite the necks until when you have overcome them.

(Sura 47, verse 4); for the fornicatress and the fornicator, flog each of them (giving) burberry suit a hundred stripes and let not pity for them detain you in the matter of obedience to Allah (Surah 24, Light, verse 2). What am I to think of other deeply disturbing words in the Koran, words like crucifixion (Surah 5 Food verse 33; The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His apostle and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified sure none of our local Muslims are in favour of engaging in violence. It appears that to burberry premium outlet claim that Islam is a religion of peace can be maintained only by denying the violence prescribed in the Koran.
