According to the Pontiff, every religion, not just Islam, is capable of violence.

"I don't think it is right to equate Islam with violence.

In almost every religion there is always a small group of fundamentalists. We have them too.

If I have to talk about Islamic violence I have to talk about Christian violence. Every day in the newspapers I see violence in Italy, someone kills his girlfriend, another kills his mother-in-law, and these are baptised Catholics", he added.

The Pope called on everyone to avoid violence by focusing God, adding that "terrorism... grows where the God of money is put first" and "where there are no other options".
