The speaker in the video below was doing well in proving his point that most Muslims are moderate. That is, until he asked his audience how they felt about stoning. The response he got may have done more to demonstrate that there is no such thing as a moderate Muslim.
Addressing a Muslim group at a peace conference in Norway, Fahad Qureshi asked for a show of hands from attendees who consider themselves moderate — almost all hands go up.
He then asks who supports stoning as a death penalty for adultery. Again, the response is unanimous. The exact question:
“How many of you agree that the punishment described in the Qur’an and sunna – whether it’s death, whether it is stoning for adultery, whatever it is, as long as it is from Allah and his prophet – is the best possible punishment ever possible for humankind – and that is what we should apply in the world? How many agree with that?”
Fahad Qureshi is the founder of Islam Net, a Norwegian Muslim organization that considers itself moderate. The peace conference was held to address the misconceptions about Islam, but the support of stoning only reinforces many of these so called “misconceptions.”
Qureshi concluded by asking attendees: “What are the politicians going to say now? What is the media going to say now? That we’re all extremists? We’re all radicals? That we need to deport all of us from the country?
