In general, we see too much of hatred towards Islam. Why is that hatred ??? Does true Islam preach violence against non-beleivers of Islam ??? Again, different people have different opinion on this. Now, leaving aside all these controversies, I still beleive there are many liberal Muslims in this world. The main problem is that their voices are not heard. Instead, voices of Islam hardliners and terroists are heard more often. This is only doing great damage to Islam. Since I am not an expert in quran, I have two solutions, but let true peace loving mislims decide whether these solutions are correct.

1/ It is time for liberal muslims to come out and raise their voice loud and clear against the hardline muslims. It is their responsibility to do this and wipe out the bad opinion on Islam.

2/ I do not know if Quran has any short comings. I will let true followers to decide on that. If they beleive Quran needs some reforms, I can only urge muslims to reform the religion. In fact, all the religions in this world had some or the other short comings, but there were some reforms carried out according to the present day environment. If there is a scope for further reformation of Islam, true muslims should do that.
