Maulana Wahiduddin Khan I Misconceptions about Islam
There are certain verses in the Quran which convey injunctions similar to the following: ‘Slay them wherever you find them.’ (The Quran, 2:191)
Referring to such verses there are some who attempt to give the impression that Islam is a religion of war and violence. This is totally untrue. Such verses relate in a restricted sense, to those who have unilaterally attacked the Muslims. The above verse does not convey the general command of Islam.
