Muslims who reject extremism (letter)


by Dermott Kelly

News Weekly, July 8, 2006
Sir,

My question is directed to Dr Sharif Shuja, who wrote the article, "Islam: Why Indian Muslims reject extremism" (News Weekly, October 22, 2005).

He said that Indian Muslims rejected extremism because they had equal opportunity in Indian society and because they had many positive role models.

What, then, is his explanation for the home-grown terrorists in Britain, Canada and Australia? Is it a lack of equal opportunity and positive Muslim role models in these societies, or because these societies lack the moral conservatism of Indian society?

Dermott Kelly,
St Georges, SA
