You did what no one can do

Reader comment on item: My Views of Islam and Islamism

Submitted by Prashant (United States), Dec 13, 2013 at 01:34

Dear Dr Pipes:

Congratulations and I cannot believe it. You went to India and criticized something related to Islam! That is something no one can do. India has a huge liberal population who will usually shut your mouth before you can do any criticism of Islam or Islamism. If you meet some of main stream Indian Hindu politicians, Chris Christie will look like a hard core conservative to you.

And, yes, Indian muslims have more freedoms and rights than the Muslims in Pakistan and other Islamic countries. But such is life. And, thanks for visiting my country. Battle against ignorance and fundamentalism has to be fought in every corner of the world and by every one.
