Opinions on Islam

Reader comment on item: Prominent Non-Muslims Decide What Islam Is and Is Not

Submitted by Prashant (United States), Sep 17, 2014 at 11:29

Dear Dr Pipes:

Non-muslim people and politicians who try to differentiate between good and bad sides of Islam do it due to pragmatic reasons. Surely, there are many muslims in the world who have not harmed anyone in their lives, have focused on the good preachings of Islam, and ignore the bad side of Islam just as we all ignore the bad side of our religions. These politicians and people want to differentiate between good and bad Islam to acknowledge the existence of such Muslims. This kind of Muslims may be in minority, they may be very quiet, and they may even be religiously obligated to remain quiet but as long as they exist it is obligatory for all of us to acknowledge that good side of Islam does exist. And it is not to say that we should not highlight the negatives that we see everyday in the modern political Islam.
