Springtime In Rawalpindi

"Chloe Mulderig ‘05, who identifies as a 'moderate Muslim'...."
-- from this article in the Dartmouth paper

What made her do it? A nice Pakistani roommate, the daughter of a zamindar, with whom she shared a room in boarding school? Or perhaps a roommate now, someone who soulfully introduced her, perhaps, to the love poetry of Rumi, and made her think that this was Islam? A professor, of the MESANostran kind (google "Mesa Nostra" and "Jihad Watch" for more) who spotted her as a vulnerable target, and instead of exploiting her in the way that some teachers used to get away with more easily, chose instead to mess with her mind? How did Chloe become a "Muslim" (moderate, forsooth!) and what's more, such a meretricious Defender of the Faith?

Is there hope for her yet? Might she actually read, and re-read, and come to understand, the texts of Islam, and then the tenets of Islam, and then the atmospherics of Islam? Give this girl a term off to study Arabic in Cairo and Damascus, or perhaps spring in Rawalpindi. The bulbuls sing beautifully that time of year.
