A possible solution to reform Islam

Reader comment on item: Islam's Future [Can Be Modern]

Submitted by Hari Iyer (United States), Aug 17, 2002 at 14:15

The U.S.A can do it.

This is how:

1. Promote our own "version" of Islam. A better vehicle is to insitute a "maulana" or Muslim high priest not bound by Saudi Establishment. (Most of the Muslim high priests are appointed by boards with strong Wahabbi/Saudi connection; we need to detach this) Our American ingenuity can help us succeed.

2. Create multitude "versions" of Koran and flood the Muslim-ulema market with different versions and different languages. The key here is to marginalize "Arab" version of the Koran.

These are the policy considerations that we, Americans, ought to explore.

Thanks
