Why Islam can never be reformed?

Reader comment on item: What Are Islamic Schools Teaching?

Submitted by S.S. (India), Mar 30, 2005 at 03:29

Islam, unlike other Semitic religions, can never be reformed. This is because it has produced a system of organisation where moderates have no voice and progressives get alienated.

In India, these moderates and progressives along with communists act as apologists for Islam in public life. It is these guys with no standing in Islamic scheme of things who teach there own interpretations of Islam, thus hoodwinking public opinion and hiding the true nature of Islam.
