It should be a matter of serious concern for us Muslims that the optimism for real change in the Muslim world we had felt from the Arab Spring a few months ago is growing dimmer.
So our discussions too are not so much about issues of today as about the bygone past. We revel in discussing ad infinitum like the dirty politics of seventh century Arabia and taking sides with one of the parties. We have no plans for the future.
If no one knows what Islam is all about, why teach Islam at all? Excluding Islam itself from the text books should be the safest option.
