Minneapolis: “Islam means peace”, Nobel laureate Kailash Satyarthi said as he decried the backlash against Muslims and made a strong call to nations to welcome refugees, particularly children, and not generalise them based on the actions of a few who have “tarnished” the image of Islam. “Islam means peace. There are hundreds of references) in the Quran where peace, justice, freedom and equality are taught,” Satyarthi said at the opening of the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize Forum held under the auspices of the Norwegian Nobel Institute in Minneapolis recently. Satyarthi said it was unfortunate that a “handful of people” were “manipulating” Islam and bringing a “bad name” to the religion for their selfish “political” ends and sometimes “emotional” reasons, when Muslims across the world have been ambassadors of humanity and peace and people from Muslim countries have shown courage to speak out the truth.
