Why be apologetic about critising Islam?

Reader comment on item: Sudden Jihad Syndrome (in North Carolina)

Submitted by Jaisingh Thakur (India), Jul 5, 2007 at 08:21

In a world in which we find a dearth of scholarship and honesty, it is a matter of great delight to have come across an erudite writer like Daniel Pipes and read some of his books, if not all. I confess to having read only a few of his books chiefly because hailing from a country where the chief creed of our politicians is to appease and genuflect before those who do not listen to the voice of reason, the ruling elite has ensured that a forthright and painstakingly scholarly writer like Daniel Pipes remains obscure and unread by the public at large.

Taking a look at the sordid doings of some of these enemies of humanity, one would easily be led into concluding that the grand experiment of multiculturalism, dinned into our ears day in and day out, has miserably failed. While the rest of the world to-day accepts and encourages the Muslim community to practice and preach their faith, Islamic countries like Saudi Arabia do not grant others this privilege. Can multiculturalism be said to have succeeded under these circumstances?
