‘There’s a blurred line between moderate and extremist Muslims’

“The terms moderate and extremist are not much use to us when considering Islam; they sort of merge with one another. You can be shocked, if you like, that almost half of Britain’s Muslims attend mosques where Riyadh [ul Haq]’s views are de jour. But you may then wonder what goes on in the other 50%: do they have ‘hardliner’ mullahs or not?”
