Islam can be a violent faith, says Queen's chaplain: Canon expresses concerns about 100 passages in the Koran that 'invite people to violence'
by Jack Doyle
There are passages in the Koran which 'invite people to violence', one of the Queen's chaplains said last night.
Reverend Canon Gavin Ashenden, the former chaplain of Sussex University and one of 35 who serve Her Majesty, expressed concern about more than 100 passages in the Muslim holy book.
But the Church of England priest declined to say whether parts of the Koran are 'evil', instead advising people to make up their own minds.
