Waging jihad for peace in Papua


My perception of jihad is mostly shaped by the mass media. I used to think jihad referred to the use of physical force or war. I thought engagement in jihad was restricted to the Muslim community. My view of jihad has now changed. I have been convinced the authentic jihad in Islam is related to peaceful coexistence in society and that jihad is not the monopoly of Muslims. While I do not embrace Islam, I have started exercising this authentic jihad through my involvement in an interfaith peace campaign in Papua - Fr Neles Tebay
