I am also moderate Muslim

Reader comment on item: [Moderate] Voices of Islam

Submitted by Haji Ali (Pakistan), Jun 14, 2004 at 12:17

Dear Daniel Pipes

I well read your article, it is great job. I know enough about struggle against Islamic fundamentalism of Miss Irshad Manji, Ms. Tasleema Nasreen, Sulman Rushdi and Tahir Aslam Gora. Unfortunately I cannot express my views in English fluently, also I am living in Pakistan where PENALTY FOR EXPRESSION IS INSTANT DEATH, therefore, naturally, I am a bit frightened. However, in order to support above moderate Muslims I am sending you my recently published article in BBC, in my own mother tongue, URDU. I am not quiet sure but guess that BBC had to soon vanished off my article from main page to back pages due to hard pressure by fundamentalists Muslims around the world. However I am grateful to BBC, which gave me chance of free expression, especially when I am living in Pakistan. Here is link, and if you get translated it in English, you will come to know that the persons blaming me uneducated and enquiring about my education level, are themselves bad in Urdu grammar and spellings. I will much appreciate if you could introduce me some of moderate Muslims as I feel lonely here.
