KUDOS for “Mindset of Modern Muslimah” (The Star, April 26). It is certainly a breath of fresh air to be able to read/view fair media coverage on Islam and Muslims.
For too long, the Muslim world has been demonised by the West as well as by our home-grown islamophobes. Unfortunately, many are not able to differentiate between culture and the religion of Islam. This article has done well in highlighting this matter.
It certainly is a challenging task to tackle the misconception over Islam and women.
However, the media such as The Star can play a critical and effective role in remedying the situation, and promoting understanding and tolerance.
The world is getting smaller and we need to learn to live with each other. This is good journalism. Kudos again for the brilliant article!
