A recent survey by the US-based Pew Research Center found that 75 per cent Muslims feel there is still a lot of discrimination.

Yet, many of them identified as proud Americans. Thus, it was heartening to come across a Twitter handle, The Muslim Marine, whose goal is simple - ask a question about Islam, and you'll be educated.

Tayyib Rashid, a veteran of the United States Marine Corps and an Ahmadiyya Muslim who invites his followers to engage with him via Periscope, runs the account.

Some of the questions include, 'Why does the Qur'an advocate killing people who don't agree with its philosophy?' to 'Am I a bad person if I love that my kids have Muslim friends mostly because I know they won't be drinking?'

His responses are clear and precise, with no hate or humour, and he usually redirects followers to websites or articles in answer. We applaud the effort.
