Reader comment on item: Salman Rushdie and British Backbone

Dear Prof Pipes,

When parents do not have the right to kill their own children, who has given the right to Muslims to kill any one.

In a hypothetical case, what prevents the Muslims to commission an excellent author to write a book entitled, "The Angelic Verses" to counter Rushdie's. With overflowing petro-dollars, money is not a problem.

It is indeed unfortunate that rational Muslims are shying away in giving proper leadership to their community.

Regards, S.C.Panda, India
