Austrian expert says Islam is unsustainable in its current form
A leading professor and expert on Islam has warned that the religion is "not sustainable" in its current form and called for more critical thinking.
Ednan Aslan, 57, a professor for Islamic religious education at the University of Vienna in Austria and a frequent guest on German-language TV shows, said that in Islam too little is being questioned and too much simply taken for granted.
He warned: "Islam, as it is now, is not sustainable," and said he wanted to "reshape the face" of his religion.
Aslan said that Islam is "out of touch with the present" in the way it is currently taught.
