An Honest Viewpoint on the World's Impression of Islam

The Followers - Musings by Marina Mahathir

Marina Mahathir is known for her down-to-earth, honest opinions and articulate way of getting her points across. Her recent article published by The Star is more of that ilk.

The perception of Islam by the rest of the world is coloured by the actions of its followers. She draws the comparison of the Islamic world's reaction to Salman Rushdie's 'Satanic Verses' not so long ago and the current reaction of Christians to Dan Brown's 'Da Vinci Code', amongst other astute observations.

A truly deserving read. Any of the highlighted links will send you to the original article.
