Go to the link and check out the Comments section. After a slow start the discussion has begun to pick up steam, focus, and direction. One fan reports that Afshan's strict Muslim family discovered that she has a Hindu boyfriend. Others have referred to the "honor" killings of Aqsa Parvez in Canada and Noor Almaleki in Arizona. The latest to comment has delivered the first direct boot to the head of Islam:
"This in the name of Allah where women are nothing but things to be disposed of as men see fit. Yeah, that sounds like a kind and caring religion to me -- NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Will Harry Potter fans begin to recognize in radical Islam the face of Voldemort and the Death Eaters? Or will the PC/MC indoctrination they have received all their lives corral their natural, spontaneous outrage into the safe confines of "cultural relativism"? Meanwhile, wherever she is, Afshan Azad may not know it, but her very own "Dumbledore's Army" is forming on her behalf.
