Pope Francis urge World's Muslim leaders to condemn terrorism

North Gazette News/New Delhi
Pope Francis on Sunday called on World’s Muslim leaders to condemn terror activities carried out across the world in the name of Islam.

Denouncing people who term all Muslims as terrorists, Pope Francis said that as we cannot say that all Christians are fundamentalists, same can’t be done to Muslims.

“But global condemnation of terror acts in the name of Islam would help in dispelling this stereotype,” Pope Francis said.

As per reports, Pope Francis aired these views while returning from his three-day visit to Turkey.

Pope Francis said that he understand the harm caused to Muslim community by the stereotype which links Islam with terrorism.

Pope Francis also called on Middle East leaders in Istanbul to ensure that no Christian is persecuted in Muslim countries.
