Reader comment on item: Islam's Future [Can Be Modern]

Submitted by Tarek Salah (United States), Mar 8, 2007 at 22:06

I loved reading this article, very informative...many people try to say that ATATURK was Anti-Islam when really he was ANTI RADICALISM and MISINTERPETATION of Islam!

I have deep respect for him, and i always thought changing the Script to latin from Arabic was WRONG but after reading this article now i understand WHY HE DID IT!

I hope one day we have a leader like him in EGYPT!!

ps: i have a friend who travels to turkey and he told me in Turkey Muslims are more religious than Egypt when they are religious..because they don't need to ACT religious to be accepted like in many other muslim countries..so in Turkey when you see a woman with the veil she realy is PURE, but in EGYPT so many wear the VEIL just to fit in when realy they don't even pray or fast or anything! its just to be accepted.

Thanks
