Salman Rushdie Says Says the Religion of Islam is Too Rigid

Salman Rushdie is the author who was sentenced to death in abstentia by the religious authorities of Iran in 1989 after his book, "The Satanic Verses" came out.

This past Sunday, the Washington Post published a column by Mr. Rushdie titled "The Right Time for an Islamic Reformation". It's short, and raises some interesting points.

I'm not sure what to make of Mr. Rushdie's recommendations. Does anyone know what should be done?
