Religion has the power to both unite and divide people and sometimes a few bad apples are enough to ruin our perceptions of certain groups. One religion, in particular, is used to getting a bad rap - Islam. Islamophobes focus on those who have gone on the radical path, which has resulted in violence against others, but one Muslim educator is trying to change all that with his messages of peace on Twitter.

Imam Mohammad Tawhidi rose to fame in Australian media back in 2016 as the voice for Muslim reform and combatting against the spread of extremists in his religion. "When I am worried about what I see is happening from my community and religion, trust me that there is something going on," he told the Seven Network's Today Tonight program on February 27, 2017. Since then he has used Twitter to not just talk about his own religion but shout out love and support for members of other groups. There have been disputes over Tawhidi's educational qualifications as an Imam, and his past ideologies, however as of now it appears he wants to use his platform for positivity.

Every Muslim woman should have the free choice to either not wear the hijab (without discrimination from other Muslims) or wear the hijab (without discrimination from non-Muslims)

wish I could upvote this more. People ignore true homophobia to get offended about the smaller things. I'm bisexual, and dont really care about a comedians jokes. This is what deserves out attention.

In fact, any hate based on religious (or even more general, spiritual) believes is absurd!

It'd be cool if we could all celebrate major holidays together, to some degree. Not to make light of any religious holiday, but I feel like it would help bring us all closer together.

That is actually a really great way to say it and think it. Basically not wishing harm on them, just that they stop coming around the real humans.

WHAT A GREAT MAN! A true voice for peace, love and understanding among all people, and against hypocrisy and hatred. I'm not on Twitter, but I do browse the Internet every day; I'm shocked and saddened that I had never heard of Imam Tawhidi. He should be a lot more famous. He and his messages of truth should be spread all over the world. If he's well-known on Twitter, the mainstream media must have heard about him. It looks like they've CHOSEN to ignore him, because they'd rather publicize negative stories. It's the old saying in journalism: "If it bleeds, it leads."
