'What if the Koran isn't perfect?'

"As a Canadian Muslim, Irshad Manji never eats pork, never drinks alcohol and regularly reads the Koran. Otherwise she is Osama bin Laden's worst nightmare," writes Clifford Krauss in the Times. Manji, a "lesbian intellectual with spiky hair and a sharp tongue," says that although every religion has its fundamentalists, "only in Islam is literalism in the mainstream." Her book, The Trouble with Islam, is scheduled for release in the U.S. in a few months.
