Says Qu’ran is book of peace

1 Dec, 2014

Pope Francis says the Islamic holy text is a book of peace and that extreme actions by fundamentalist Islamists should not be held as representative of the faith itself:

The Qur’an is a book of peace. It is a prophetic book of peace. You just can’t say that [extremists represent the entire faith], just as you can’t say all Christians are fundamentalists. We have our share of [fundamentalists]. All religions have these little groups.
