Reader comment on item: Can Islam Be Reformed?
in response to reader comment: 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??

Which international organisation is calling for a change or reform of Islam?? I note the basis of your argument is false. There is no internationally organized call for any religion to be reformed or changed. If you do know one, please share. If there was one, I am sure OIC will act, and, very swiftly call for other religions to do the same.

The problem with Islam is the dire economic conditions of the muslims. The more the answer to the opressive Islamism problem is sought in Islam itself, the more the west will move away form reality.

It is the economy!! I believe it is that simple.
