Making of Islamist

The article "Making of an Islamist: an insider's account" (May 26) provided a valuable insight into the activities of radical organisations such as the Hizb-ut-Tahrir. But I do not agree with the conclusion that Ed Husain's life might have been different had he not looked upon religion as the source of answer to all his questions. Husain drifted towards radicalism because he was sandwiched between conflicting cultures.

For a religion to be true, it must answer all the questions rationally. All religions preach harmony and brotherhood but there are some anti-social elements in every faith that lure the young and confused towards radical organisations.
