Reader comment on item: [The Issue of Compulsion in Religion:] Islam is What Its Followers Make of It

Submitted by reema saffarini (United Arab Emirates), Oct 20, 2004 at 12:29

I read your article Islam is what followers make of it. I have to say, as a Muslim, that I disagree with some of what you have said. Islam as a religion works in all times in all places. it does not matter where or in what era. It is flexible and suits all times; that's why we say there are many interpretations for it. Yet these interpretations all agree on basic points. On the other hand, the Taliban interpritation is absolutely wrong. These people are extremists and do not understand the true Islam. I still stand and believe that (La Ikraha fi Al-Deen).
