"…some parts of the media and a segment of ill-wishers in the West are trying to defame Islam…": Ima...

Imam Marwan Gill

Interlitq: What is the greatest challenge for you as both an Islamic theologian and a practising Muslim?
MG: In my view, the world has become very materialistic and people have turned away from God. People are neglecting their responsibilities towards their Creator and failing to find a real purpose in their lives. As for those who do follow a religion, too often their faith is diluted and they pay mere lip-service to their so-called faith.
The other great challenge of this era is an increasing tide of Islamophobia in some parts of the Western world. I believe it is the case that some parts of the media and a segment of ill-wishers in the West are trying to defame Islam by spreading misconceptions about this faith. Sadly, some in the West attribute the evil actions of certain individuals and so-called Islamic organisations to the religion of Islam. And so the barbaric actions of a tiny minority come to taint a whole religion. Another factor here is that some questionable Muslim organisations exist who cloak their worldly and political ambitions behind the pure and peaceful face of Islam.
