Reader comment on item: [Beltway Snipers]: Converts to Violence?
in response to reader comment: islam

Submitted by Tamr Shiban Iskiri (United States), Jun 30, 2008 at 17:45

I do not think that we should or could be the ones to decide whether or not a man is a true Muslim. This is between he and Allah. If he is a sinner, how is it your business? If a man murders in the name of Islam, that is when we should speak loudly in defense of Islam. That is when we tell people that This man may worship Allah but he does not represent Islam by his actions.

Thank You
