Re: Tahir I. Siddiqui's Aug. 30 letter, â€œThoughtful words,â€? a response to Yahya Merchantâ€™s Aug. 28 letter, â€œReally, itâ€™s not about religionâ€?:
I found Mr. Siddiqui's words less than thoughtful. Basically, he is saying that Mr. Merchant's continual diatribes about the poor, maligned Muslims is right on, and the rest of us who cannot understand Mr. Merchant and the nuances of Islam should go ask our favorite imam to enlighten us.
