Islamic terrorism is linked to Islam, says Salman Rushdie, so why deny that?

“…in the video above, posted on a Youtube channel Big Think Rushdie argues that we need to address the problem of Islam. He argues for free speech and avers that minorities, with reference to Muslim populations in the West, should promote free speech even if that means having to be bear “a certain amount of criticism of their own ideas” because it’s in self interest.

He starts off by commenting of how in the past it was the Right Wing that did not allow any criticism of religions, but that mantle has since been passed over to the Left, the new “god squad”.

Rushdie then explains why he thinks criticising Islam is valid.
