Interesting Facts on Salman and Ijaz

Reader comment on item: Salman Rushdie and British Backbone

Submitted by Singha (India), Jun 27, 2007 at 12:00

Salman Rushdie, a Kashmiri, sees himself an Indian not a Pakistani, despite the fact that he spent time in Karachi. Salman has married a woman of Hindu Brahmin Heritage and the marriage was solemnised under Hindu rituals.

Ijaz Ul Haq is the son of previous Pakistani strongman, Zia-ul-Haq, an ally of the US and the real progenitor of Islamic Nuke.

West's indulgence of Islamists is a key factor in the genesis of current Islamist problem. If an influential rogue Islamist state like Saudi Arabia or Pakistan is taken out, and dismembered, Islamist Problem can be temporarily managed.

Long term, Islamism has to be made to go the way of Christianism. From 16th Century onwards progressively Christianism lost its vitality when faced with the onslaught of science, renaissance and enlightenment. And the world benefited.
