Taslima attacked, Muslim 'moderates' respond

Muslim leaders in India condemn attack on Taslima and in the same breath, call for an end to free speech. Shabash!

Delhi Minorities Commission chairperson Kamal Farooqui said the incident was condemnable, specially as three MLAs were involved in it.

But, he said, the government should also ensure that Nasreen is not allowed to do or write anything which hurts the sentiments of Muslims.

"The government should immediately cancel her visa and make her go out of the country," he said, adding, "she should realise that this is not Bangladesh or Pakistan, but India where the sentiments of all communities are respected."

But not the sentiments of Taslima Nasreen and those who support and agree with her. And not the sentiments of those who believe that Islamic blasphemy law does not and should never supersede common modern laws based on the principles of free inquiry and free speech. These are the closet jihadi's amongst us, these scumbags are known as 'moderate muslims'. Well, I don't see a difference in the view of this moderate and a jihadi?
