Why isn't there any call for reforms in Islam by any Islamic country from those 57 OIC memebers or by Muslims in our countries??

Reader comment on item: Can Islam Be Reformed?

There are 57 Islamic countries, members of OIC, which are by and large Muslim majority countries. In addition there is a sizable population of Muslims in non-Muslim countries, e. g., India has more than 150 million and the West (Europe, UK, USA, Canada, Australia).

If Muslims thought that Islam needed any reform, don't you think we would be hearing calls from Muslims themselves from any or all of those OIC countries. Do I hear a call from even a single one of them . NO!!

OK, at least those Muslims who are in the West, they should be calling for reforms if they really thought Islam needed reforms. Again a big fat NO!! You would think these Muslims would be more enlightened in view of their brethren's terrorist activities throughout this world. If anything these Muslims living the West are more fundamentalist than their brothers back home.

It is obvious Muslims worldwide do not think there is any need to reform this "perfect" religion. If and when their religion calls for murder of non-Muslims theyre willingly do it as a religious duty. That explains all of their terror activities and they think nothing of it.

Those Muslims who call for real reforms in Islam such as Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Wally Shoebat, Wafa Sultan, Ali Sina and a few others have actually left Islam and are considered apostates by Muslims. So how does their call for reforms be regarded as a call by Muslims for a reform.

So let us not sit and wait for a reformed Islam, it is never going to happen since Muslims do not see anything wrong with their religion and as far as they believe it is a perfect religion that can't be changed by any Muslim.

Bottom line - Islam will never ever reform!!
