Daniel Pipes is right

Reader comment on item: Pope Benedict XVI and the Koran

Submitted by Amitabh tripathi (India), Jan 17, 2006 at 12:16

I totally agree with Dr Daniel Pipes that Koran and hadith has scope of interpretation.The whole problem with Islam is its rigidity, once they will decide to amend their scriptures according to the demand of contemporary world order there will be no violence in the jihad. But the real question is whether followers of Islam have courage to take initiative on this front. Because for this they have to treat Koran and Hadith as an historical document .
