On Islam’s criticism and reformation

Standard

” …to be critical… is one thing. To reduce them to something which is violent extremism, and to acknowledge and to accept the rhetoric of the Egyptian president Sisi and before him Mubarak: that’s not going to help any country. Because these people (the Muslim Brotherhood), you challenge them with democracy and with arguments, not with repression and torture (…) Islam doesn’t need a reformation, but Muslims need to reform their minds, their interpretations of Islam, which is not exactly the same as what you went through because we don’t have a church ”
