The Quaid was a secularist in the true sense
of the word, however, he capitulated to the rabid mullahs. I disagree with
Dr. Jafari that identifying oneself as a Muslim, in Jinnah's case a cultural
Muslim), automatically means fidelity to the core beliefs of a religion.
Dr. Jafari makes a distinction between fundamentalists and others who may
simply wish to abide by the dictates of their faith. Dare I assert that
while fundamentalists are no doubt extreme in their views, any one touting
religious law based on centuries-old edicts that can't be debated in
legislatures is an extremist, simply because that person does not
accommodate any divergence of opinion.
