Dear Lactantius ,

thank you so much for your sober comment that must dispel any illusions as to the possiblity of humanizing Islam.

>he was executed by public hanging on 18th.January 1985.

Around 3000 people gathered to enjoy seeing his execution and many "chanted that Taha's execution was a victory for Islam"...

Bright perspectives for more would-be Tahas and all concerned with the victory of Islam.
If you're vexed with suicide thoughts just tell your local imam you want to reform Islam and make it "moderate". It will work as effectively as any strap of explosives you may be dreaming of. And, inshallah, you may gather 4000 viewers for your public execution...unless you happen to be given a chance to recant your heretical views and to return to the fold of the faithful. You'll stop thinking the unthinkable and will struggle for the victory of Islam as never before.
