Pope Francis had visited Tirana, Albania Sunday to address the media and the people of the Balkan nation on the rising violence all around the world. While addressing the media Pope Francis stated how the extremists all around the world are perverting their religion to justify their wrongdoings and the violence that has been erupting because of it. Once Tirana itself had witnessed much brutality between the Muslims and Christians that had resided there during Communism.
Every time Pope had visited Albania before, he had made sure to interact with all his followers and deliver as much as possible. However, after threat of militants from Iraq and Syria imposing on the Pope, the visit had been shortened where most of his followers got to see only Pope’s bodyguards who were either perched on the back of his car or were seen jogging along keeping Pope in complete cover up.
