Pope Francis urges Muslim leaders to condemn terrorism
December 1 , 2014
Pope Francis has called upon Muslim leaders from around the world to condemn terrorist actions being carried out in the name of Islam, according to media reports.
The pope, who concluded a trip to Turkey, said he was aware of the harm that was caused due to the stereotype which linked Islam and terrorism.
But he indicated that a "global condemnation" of such violence would be helpful for the majority of Muslims in dispelling the stereotype.
