More peaceful spokespersons
When I recently asked Who speaks for peaceful Islam?, I mentioned Gandhi and Martin Luther King. It isn't as if all the spokespersons for peace and human dignity are dead. More recently we have Nelson Mandela of South Africa, Aung San Suu Kyi of Myanmar (Burma), and the Dalai Lama of Tibet. Where are their Islamic counterparts? Whom else should we add to this honor roll?
