The Newsweek’s story not only flared up the emotions of the Muslims, but also showed the geographical areas which represent the true Muslims. And those touched by this issue. However, there are writers like Irshad Manji, who will not understand how it feels to be a Muslim, in such a situation where the religion or the Holy Book is disrespected. In a recent article “Riots and rage won't salvage Islam's honour Newsweek erred, but that doesn't justify violent protests and mayhem, says Irshad Manji. What! Is she a Muslim uttering these words. Why not to protest? She further questions “Still, at least one more question needs to be asked: Even if the Qur'an was mistreated, are violent riots justified? What does she mean to say “Even if the Qur’an was Mistreated”. A Muslim respects Qur’an more than his life. Ms. Manji is probably affected more by the Non-Muslim Media and especially her brought up in a society where she was allowed to grow with her own view and ideas about Islam. For her, Qur’an may be merely a reading book, but for Muslims it is a Holy Book. And its desecration means something to them.
It is advised that she refrains from make such drastic comments on the Muslim’s Holy Book. May Allah guide Ms. Manji on the right path. So that she takes up the news of desecration of Holy Qur’an from the perspective of a Muslim, rather than a writer. The Western Media considering her as a Muslim, will bring her forward to create distortion about Qur’an. But it is upto the Muslims to make her realize the talent she has that can be used for glorifying Islam, rather than demonizing it.
