This take is completely based on REAL FACTS and isn't meant to discourage or offend anyone. I've seen many people saying Islam is a religion of terrorism. There people who still think that all Muslims are terrorist and vice versa. I'm not gonna debate with you but I want you to see facts about is too.
While writing this take I choose to stay unbiased and hence I'll use some counter facts too and I'll bring another side to your notice as this is STRICTLY AN INFORMATIVE TAKE.
Please note that Author of this take is NON-MUSLIM, I'm Hindu by birth and Atheist by choice.
So here are some facts about terrorism and its connection with Islam. Judging by them, you can reform your opinion and comment down below if you wish.
1) Global Terrorism Index
According to Global Terrorism Index, The countries to suffering the highest impact of Terrorism are the Muslim Majority Countries. The top six countries are Iraq, Afganistan, Nigeria, Syria, Pakistan, and Yemen are Muslim majority. Even if you take a look at top ten, these are Muslim countries too except for India but due to its population, even 13 percent population is higher than other countries.
My point in adding this fact is not to tell you that innocent muslims are getting killed you but to tell you that Muslim people are killing their own population too. The terrorist from these countries are Muslims and victims are also Muslims. by the way, our beloved US stands at Thirty-second Position
2) FBI Database for terrorist attacks on US soil 2002 - 2015
You don't need me to explain to you who is FBI. The same FBI has published its Database on terrorism 2002-2005. According to this database, Only 6% of Terrorist attacks in the US were by Islamic Extremist.
With Latino ranking top, Islam inspired attacks rank 4th on this list.
But there is counterpoint for this from my side. Islam is only RELIGION on this list. if you observe this list again, there is no other religion here than Islam.

3) EUROPOL's Data
Europol is a website which publishes an annual report entitled EU Terrorism Situation and Trend Report and much more crime based data.
Concluding from data given by them, 99.6% of terrorist attacks in Europe were by non-Muslim groups; 84.8% of attacks were from separatist groups completely unrelated to Islam. Only a measly 0.4% of terrorist attacks from 2006 to 2008 could be attributed to extremist Muslims.
4) There are More Mass Shootings Done In the US than Terrorist attacks
According to Washington post, 355 Mass Shootings took place in the US alone (2015). Please note that killing more than 4 people is considered a mass shooting.
Some Basic Statistics
Many people do call all Islamic people terrorist. Here are some statistics you need to know before doing so.
There have been 140,000 terror attacks committed worldwide since 1970. Even if Muslims carried out all of these attacks, those terrorists would represent less than 0.00009 percent of all Muslims. It is like a ball in a football stadium.
Our Take ends here. I found a funny but real Image about terrorism and how we discriminate / Judge people based on their religions or race. check it out.
So here we are. I've made my presentation in front of you. This might be confusing which side I'm on but I'm simply unbiased. I think all of the sources I've linked are legit and credible. I hope you like it. :)
