Moderate is less, says Karen Armstrong. According to Marina Mahathir, wh0 attended Karen Armstrong's talk in KL yesterday:
Dr Armstrong talked about the need for Muslims to reject labels imposed on them. Not only should they reject extremist labels but Dr Armstrong also said she disliked the term 'moderate Islam'. She argued that 'religion means extravagant compassion' and believes that in the West, 'moderate' means "let's have a bit less of Islam".
That's so basic, isn't it?
Happy Fathers' Day.
