Reader comment on item: Faces of American Islam[: Muslim Immigrants]

Submitted by Hari Iyer (United States), Aug 17, 2002 at 13:52

One of the ways to find out the true intent of Muslims immigrating from Middle East and other Muslim countries is to view the "letters to editor" or "response to various opinion pieces" of these Muslim readers to the newspapers/magazines from these countries.

I was aghast when views from Muslims in Canada/USA writing to their respective countries' newspapers. One reader wrote a response to an opinion survey hoping for country's leaders to adhere to "Islamic standards and practices" and the reader lived in Canada. Exactly what does the reader mean? Taliban type of Islamic dispensation?
