Egyptian Christian: There has been many reformation movements in islam. Oldest were mutazilites in Abbasids time who tried to compromise reason with revelation . They were all killed by followers of Ibn e Taymiyya. Then came sufis. They were also declared kafirs and killed in large numbers by wahabbis.Latest are Submittersrs and Pervezians. Submitters head Rashad Khalifa was killed in Arizona. Pervezian leaders were lynched in Pakistan. Another reinterpreter of Quran promoting islam as religion of Peace " Mohammed Taha" was hanged in Sudan in 80s.

They basically try to stick their heads in sand and reinterpret the violent Madina suras and deny or ignore Mohammed's violent life and crimes against humanity and try to claim that islam is a religion of peace. Historically they have been declared apostates and heretics by real muslims . They all said Quran promotes peace and preached brotherhood with infidels.

One such person is Irshad Manji (woman) of Canada ( writer of "Trouble with islam") , who is running around teaching ijtehad instead of Jihad. She is under many death threats but is surviving because she is living in Canada. She dares not venture into a sharia country .

Hasan Pierre is another one writing on this forum promoting a peaceful interpretation of Quran and calling Bin Laden a heretic. In a muslim country he will be apprehended as a heretic trying to reinterpret Quran and will be hanged on a lamp post for badmouthing islamic hero Shaikh Osama Bin Laden.
