in response to reader comment: Islam needs a revival

Submitted by Kamath (Canada), Jan 4, 2011 at 08:32

Rekha: you say," Once Islam undergoes a revival, then the terrorism will end.." Agreed. , Islam and its practices are not monolithic in nature. But there is a dormant virus in it that can burst into action any time under appropriate environment. This has happebed in countries like India where there was and is a good deal of syncrtism between Islam and Indian religions. It took many many centuries.

So do not expect things such things as revival, modernization or eclectial transformation in a short time . It might take few more centuries if everything went well.
