Here’s an interesting one for you – and I thank Frank O’Dwyer for bringing it up as an issue today.
Turkey is preparing to publish a document that represents a revolutionary reinterpretation of Islam - and a controversial and radical modernisation of the "religion". The country’s powerful Department of Religious Affairs has commissioned a team of theologians at Ankara University to carry out a fundamental revision of the Hadith, the second most sacred text in Islam after the Koran. Is this a sign of progress – of a new Islam. Or is it secularist Turkey trying its best to stop the relentless advance of "traditional" murderous Islam? I found this quite an interesting analysis on the issue and my instinct is to wish the Turks well…. what do you all think about it?
