Pakistan: What is a “Progressive Muslim”?

Categories: South Asia, Pakistan, Religion

iFaqeer [1] attempts unpacking the various adjectives used for Muslims, and wonders what a Progressive Muslim is. “There is one universally applicable Islam. But it is a comprehensive “deen”, a complete way of existing in this world. It is “jaama'e” (comprehensive) and has a complete code for every human being in every place and time. Each of us understands it and adopts it as a function of our respective personalities, temperaments, and circumstances.”
