I know there are peaceful Muslims. However, many countries are negatively affected by them. They include US, Philippines, Thailand, India, Nigeria, Sudan, France, Spain, United Kingdom, Russia, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, and more. In the US the 9/11 terrorists were reciting Koranic versus as the committed terrorist these acts. In many of these countries mosques and other Islamic institutions have been used as breeding grounds for terrorism. Their motivation for terrorism appear to be their religion.
There are also Muslim countries negatively affected by Islam, They include Pakistan, Indonesia, Afghanistan, Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Malaysia.
In these countries woman's basic rights are seriously curtailed.
Sharia law is restricts basic humans right including the freedom of religion. They promote cruel acts such as stoning to death, or horrific lashing for making personal decisions that are peaceful. Muslims are not free to choose are another religion. Crimes against Non-Muslims are not prosecuted with due diligence.
Pakistan is the birthplace of Taliban. It is also sponsored by the State at a senior level. There goals include destabilizing and terrorizing neighboring countries like India and Afghanistan. Here not only religion is at play but religion and politics are intertwined.
I understand many well intended segments of the Muslim populations and others believe Islam means peace. However, these Muslims seem to be too passive about rejecting acts of violence coming from their religion.
