Light of dawn; In Pakistan

Reader comment on item: Iran's Christian Boom

Submitted by Prashant (United States), Aug 11, 2021 at 09:47

Dear Dr Pipes, Islamic world being what it is and has been, we often see some light of dawn even within Islam. A young writer with the name of Shamila Ghyas defines secularism as separation of church and state, and states that the whole world needs secularism.

As a person who has long considered Islamic theocracies illegitimate, these words are music to my ears.

I learned about Ms Ghyas via one of her tweets in which she complained about an 8 year old boy being charged for blasphemy.

All power to people like her.
