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.

as usual people still trying to attack a religion when that's the exact opposite of what these posts are about. Christianity has no more extremists than any other religion.

YES!!! EVANGELICALS, I believe he’s talking to you. PRO-LIFE protestors, try on your new label. Extremists are anyone that infringes upon and attempts to force their beliefs upon others. Extremists don’t necessarily need to use violence to do their work, they just need to be adamant that their beliefs and opinions are the only right ones. Sound familiar?

This is exactly what I do. Imagine how peaceful the world would be without religion. There'd be nothing for liars, killers, hypocrites, rapists and all around general scumbags to hide behind or crimes committed in the name of [insert deity name here].

I would add though. I would prefer extremist atheists. "Bombing" schools, and churches with Science textbooks and logic papers; that would be something to see!

This is especially true for those Muslim organizations masquerading in the West as "honest, good organizations supportive of democracy" but fail to condemn terrorism and when you dig into their records, you find they support terrorist groups instead. CAIR, Muslim Brotherhood, etc.. Or even individuals like Ilhan Omar. The only people she is fooling into thinking she's a good Muslim are the idiots out there. She certainly isn't as awesome as this guy!

Well, it depends on their fundamental beliefs. An extremist Jainite would literally not hurt a fly, whereas an extremist muslim/christian would.

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)

THIS is how the muslims I used to know are. Long before Isis. And this is why I (christian raised, now atheist) still defend muslims when someone around me talks bad about them... And why it hurts so much when some muslims proof me wrong.

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.

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."
