The maximum damage done to the image of Islam today is by the international media which is bombarding misconceptions about it day and night using an array of strategies.
This was affirmed by renowned Islamic scholar Dr Zakir Naik on Thursday night, June 16, as part of his lecture 'Media & Islam
"International media, be it print, audio, video, or online, use a number of strategies to malign Islam by first picking up the black sheep of the Muslim community, and portraying them as though they are exemplary Muslims."
Media is the most important tool rather the most dangerous weapon in the world. It converts black into white and a villain into a hero, he added. "It is, therefore, the duty of Muslims to remove these fallacies and spread the message of Islam."
Hundreds of movies were made in Hollywood to malign the image of Islam that a non-Muslim gets scared when he heard a Muslim saying 'Allah Akbar', thinking that he is going to kill him, Dr Naik explained. "Hitler, who was not a Muslim, is the biggest terrorist in the world as he incinerated 46 million Jews."
If anyone really wants to know how good Islam is, he or she has to study its authentic sources; the glorious Quran and Hadith rather than looking to its followers as is the case with a motorist whose reckless driving should be blamed for an accident rather than the latest Mercedes car he was driving. "The best exemplary Muslim is the last and final messenger Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)."
Islam is also labelled as intolerant, and it is indeed, but towards corruption, discrimination, injustice, adultery, alcoholism, and all evils, he pointed out. "Islam is the most tolerant religion as far as promoting the human values is concerned."

Oh brother. This is like when the mayor of Atlanta brushed off the spike in violent crime as “perception” a few years ago.
The truth hurts when the “religion of peace” is exposed, don’t it.
Incorrect: Islam is being damaged by its own actions. Hell the media, Facebook and Google are helping Islam and Hillary by removing the unfavorable news articles, blogs, and posts. Found that out the last few days when I did searches to find things I had seen online about both previously. Of course they are. Make no mistake about it.
Nothing damages islam like the quran and the hadiths. Just read what their “prophet” wrote - that’s all you need to know about islam.
I don’t supposed you have a source?
Muslims blowing people up on behalf of Islam does nothing to tarnish the Muslim image though.
Is this asshat crazy or just another run of the mill Muslim terrorist himself?
Where? Even Orland was not the result of Islam. In fact no one in the media seems to know what set this good man off. Mental illness perhaps?
Hitler was fan of mad mo...
And killed 6 million jews
Islam stunts this natural growth in the human being, leaving individuals at the emotional level of a spoiled 13-year old.
Perhaps the media should more gracefully cover atrocities. There should be a much nicer way to cover people who subscribe to an entity that advocates killing and raping people who don’t believe the same.
What he really meant is “Islam is being harmed by increased public awareness of its true nature.”
The sad truth is, there are no purer practitioners of Islam than ISIS, who practice Islam in the exact same manner as the ‘perfect man’ of Islam, the ‘Prophet’ Mohammed.
Islam is as Islam does. It is a serial murderer of entire peoples and cultures.
They already do by omitting facts about the perps. Perhaps instead of doing that they should just out-an-out lie that they are white christian males, from privileged families of course.
DISTORTED? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? IF ANYTHING OUR MEDIA AND GOVERNMENT HAVE GIVEN ISLAM A PASS. ISLAM NEEDS TO BE OUTLAWED AND ALL MUSLIMS AND THEIR SUPPORTERS - DEPORTED.
It doesn’t need to the media to damage it. It is fundamentally against human nature, and is a failure.
Your time will come, muzzies.
But you will not like it.
To the contrary, Islam is showing its true face of brutality and raw power to subjugate and utterly destroy.
Muslims who talk about being “moderate” just cannot bring themselves to be honest about the direct commands contained is the Koran.
Zakir Naik is a clown. Refuses to debate “infidels”.
