Only by deleting satanic verses

Reader comment on item: Can Islam Be Reformed?

Submitted by Mahendra Mathur (Trinidad And Tobago), Jul 4, 2013 at 16:34

Islam can be reformed only by deleting dozens of offensive verses from Koran. An example is Verse 39 of Surah 2 which states: "But those who disbelieve and belie our Ayat such are the dwellers of the Fore, they shall abide therein forever".

Some Muslims might be moderate but none are allowed to disbelieve verses of Koran.
