This book is not anti-muslim: Trust me read it :),
This review is from: The Trouble with Islam Today: A Wake-Up Call for Honesty and Change (Paperback)
At first I thought the book was anti-Muslim. I decided this was a good enough label; a few weeks later, when suddenly I bumped into a table holding copies of the book, in a bookshop. After some deliberation, I decided I could not simply label it without, seeing what all the fuss was about. I mean, if I have not read it, then how can I judge it?
So I purchased the book and finished reading it that very day! I received much criticism from my family and friends on how unproductive reading the book was and that there are so many other important books I could have read. My response to them: Really? Have you read it? I may not agree with some of the things it says, but I also welcome the writer point of view.
Thank you, Irshad Manji, for your excellent contribution to both the Western and Muslim cultures.

What you do not agree? Is Irshad Manji an expert in Islam? What knowledge, besides that fact that her parents were Muslims, she has of Islam? She should have studies Islam properly before writing about it. No wonder she is courting sympathy by giving an impression that her life is in danger.

Her life may be in danger. Unlike Judaism or Christianity, people are regularly killed for leaving Islam. She doesn't want to be the next Shafilea Ahmed.
