IRONY IN THE ARTICLE

Reader comment on item: Distinguishing between Islam and Islamism

Submitted by Syed Shamshir Ali (Saudi Arabia), Sep 22, 2013 at 07:01

As you have written and quoted some parameters for being an Islamist. Saudi Arabia fulfills all those criteria , yet It is not an Islamist country according to you, why??

You quoted one example of Sudan related to alcohol, Alcohol is banned in Saudia also for everyone. In fact no other place of worship is there for any religion other than Islam. You can't built churches, temples etc.

Please clarify or Saudi is friend of US and US is getting heavy benefits from Saudi, That's why you rather preferred to not use it's name.
