Muslims Appreciate Harper's Comments

Published: Wednesday, 07/23/2008 12:00 am EDT

The Muslims in general need to appreciate that the comments by Prime Minister Stephen Harper do not amount to criticism of Muslims or Islam (RE: "PM Stirs Debate by Cozying Up to Moderate Muslims," July 9). He has in fact tried to bring about the fact that Islam stands for peace. Even the Islamic salutation Assalamo Alaikum means "Peace be unto you." The extremism and bloodshed in the name of Islam is indeed deviant and regrettable. The Ahmadi Muslims have to be lauded for putting up the true face of Islam in its pristine purity.
