For the past few months, I have been receiving Islamic Voice and have been pleasantly surprised to read about the progressive steps being taken for the education and economic welfare of the Muslims of India. It is also heartening to read about the success of Muslim candidates in the competitive exams. There is no doubt that the presence of senior Muslim officers in our administrative services will reduce the frustration which the majority of Muslims are prone to feel, because of the absence of their co-religionists in high positions. I was surprised to read a letter in the June 2012 issue, which criticized Khushwant Singh for his anti-Muslim comments. Surely, the editor is aware of the fearless way, Khushwant Singh has spoken about injustice to Muslims, and his untiring efforts to create cordial relations between India and Pakistan over the past many decades. I doubt if it is a good policy to allow total freedom of expression to a contributor to criticize. The editor must keep a close eye on such submissions. Readers must have seen in the press about a group of Muslims in London who are attempting to modernize Islam. It will be interesting to follow their progress. Perhaps Islamic Voice can also join the debate. Zafar Futehally, Bangalore.

Islamic Voice is a monthly Islamic magazine published in Bangalore. It is the largest English language Muslim publication in India. It is a comprehensive magazine, places a relatively high emphasis on social issues and strives to have a broad appeal. Since 1987, Islamic Voice has covered its fascinating namesake without fear or favour, with insight, accuracy, thoroughness and a well rounded perspective on a variety of subjects - be it the economy, politics, lifestyle, the arts, entertainment, travel, science, technology or health. That's why Islamic Voice is the country's most widely read publication, a position it has held for more than a decade. And that's why it makes sense to subscribe to Islamic Voice. We represents all Muslim sects and shades of thought from all over India. We focus on "our" triumphs which, mostly, go unreported as well as constructively addresses our failures and shortcomings.
