PUCL Bulletin, July 2004

Letter to the editor

Dear Sir, Mr. Engineer is a thoughtful and talented critic. However, I respectfully disagree with your editorial decision to publish his article on Iqbal’s Reconstruction ('Iqbal and Reconstruction of Religious Thought In Islam' By Asghar Ali Engineer, June 2004)

I would have the same objection for publishing any article in your Bulletin about (say) Aurobindo’s ideas about reconstruction of religious thought in Hinduism.

Criticism of Hindutva and Islamicism are proper subjects for your bulletin when they impinge on secularism and civil and human rights. – Brijen Gupta, (By E-Mail), 16 Jun 2004
