Reader comment on item: Can Islam Be Reformed?

Submitted by Manelis Angelakis (Greece), Jul 2, 2013 at 10:36

We could also colonise Mars.

How long are we expected to wait for this "Great Reform of Islam"?

Things are certainly not moving in that direction.

The only way to stop it (or reform it - as you like) is, as in the past, convince them that they cannot win.

Was Ataturk an idiot for banning the Fez, the Headscarf and ABOVE ALL the CALIPHATE? He was no angel himself, but gave Turkey the best chance to join the modern world. I'm sure that if he felt confident enough he would have banned Islam in Turkey forever.
