How to combat Islamism?

Reader comment on item: Why the Death Edict on Salman Rushdie?

Submitted by Matsuoka (Japan), Aug 24, 2022 at 01:15

Daniel Pipes san, greetings from Japan.

How can the Muslim world be improved so that there are no longer so many people who want to kill others (eg Salman Rushdie) due to religious matters? Is that possible?

I am learning about middle east politics and your website is very informative, so thank you!

Daniel Pipes replies:

And thank you.

You ask a big question. My simple answer is to modernize Islam rather than return to a thousand years ago.

I have written often about this, notably at https://www.danielpipes.org/13033/can-islam-be-reformed.
