‘Stop saying ISIS has nothing to do with Islam’ blasts Archbishop of Canterbury
“A theological voice needs to be part of the response, and we should not be bashful in offering that.
He added: “This requires a move away from the argument that has become increasingly popular, which is to say that Isis is ‘nothing to do with Islam’, or that Christian militia in the Central African Republic are nothing to do with Christianity, or Hindu nationalist persecution of Christians in South India is nothing to do with Hinduism.
“Until religious leaders stand up and take responsibility for the actions of those who do things in the name of their religion, we will see no resolution.”
Mr Welby, who in spite of voting to remain in the European Union, also levelled a scathing attack on the transnational bloc.
