2). Is islam a violent religion? In the Quran it is told that one should kill the ones that don't believe in God, but many believe that it is a peaceful religion as they should give the word of God and send them on their way. The military believe in killing those who are not of your religion. They believe that killing others and yourself is strictly prohibited.
3). Are women forced to wear the veil as apart of their religion? The Quran shows that women should wear clothing that is modest and conservative but some women choose to wear the veil or because they are enslaved in the their status and is sometimes choose to wear because they don't want to look like objects.
