Dear Dr Pipes:

The reader oxymoron implies that the world is harsh on Muslims who oppose freedom of speech but not so harsh when others tend to restrict that freedom. He cites the example of painter M.F. Hussain who painted Hindu goddesses in the nude. Oxymoron is misguided. How many body bags did he count over protests over M.F. Hussains paintings? In Pakistan yesterday 19 people died plus one who died inhaling smoke from a burning US flag.
