Matt Browne, I've read through this thread, including your list of key messages presented in Irshad Manji's two books, and I agree with them. I recently read her first book and I'm currently reading her second one. It is so very unfortunate that so few Muslims have the courage to speak out, instead of living in this constant denial and/or being silent because of fear.
Muslims! Especially you who've been such your whole lives: what do you think of Manji's key messages presented in Matt's list?! 


I'm glad to hear this. I learned so many positive things about Islam as well, especially in the second book. This book really gives me hope that humanity in all its diversity can evolve beyond greed and insults and war. Hope that some day in the future we will see respect, fairness and peace.

W.S., I'm certainly not up for the task of addressing an entire list, which would require an essay, however I suggest for purposes of focus and clarity, that any "key message" or concerns of "constant denial" are taken one at a time in a thread other than "Quran and peace", and perhaps you'll get a more specific response to your question.  And Allah Knows Best.


It doesn't require an essay, in my opinion. Please have the courage to briefly comment on the most important items of this list. No one will think that you are a heretic. Or do you fear the wrath of fundamentalists?
