Seeing so many in the Muslim world getting het up about Salmon Rushdie getting his knighthood makes me think they’re going to go nuts for this new pressure group: the Council of ex-Muslims of Britain.
Actually it begs a question. Is there such a thing as excommunication in Islam? Apparently there is, but it seems in Shia doctrine both parties have to consent to it. This would seem reasonable, humane even, were it not for the instant fatwa of death that often follows.
