At a critical time charged with war-fever - when the majority Muslim Middle East is spoiling for a fight, we have mined the globe's remote realms untapped by Muslim mayhem. While everybody and their aunty are ramping up the rhetoric for regional war, and the U.S. is on the cusp of spurring the Syrian crisis by wading in, we cast a faint light in the direction of the peaceful part of the planet where Islam abounds and calm rules the roost over Muslim militancy and Islam-inspired war-mongering.
Contrary to common perception, there are Muslim pockets near and far-flung that remain unspoilt by man-made wars and conflict. There are entire Islamic nations untroubled by prospects of tear-gas, missiles and suicide blasts and apolitical Muslim populations unthreatened by Jihadist fronts and militant cells.
Some of these serene spots are already on the map for honeymooners or nature enthusiasts and eco-warriors or (more peacefully put) eco-tourists. Others are off the radar from the rabble, remaining more obscure as well-kept secrets, even from the most intrepid trekker.
Our country candidates have been screened and monitoried for past conficts as well as present protests and real-time war-risk, and still others have been disqualified for instability and violence or even violations of human rights.
It may come as no surprise but there is a positive correlation between tourism and peace! And Islamic populations are no exception. Peruse our panel of peace - across the Muslim majority corners of calm from East to West.
