Mona Siddiqui on Thought For The Day

Thought For The Day is often lampooned by secularists for its perceived banality, and I have to say that most of the contributors elicit in me feelings ranging from boredom through irritation to downright fury. One notable exception to this trend is Mona Siddiqui, who is Professor of Islamic Studies at Glasgow. She invariably talks sense and is refreshingly honest.

Today, for example, she was speaking about assisted dying, and she admitted that although her religion prohibited helping someone to end their life she didn't know if she could refuse if she were ever asked to do so by one of her children. Few Chrstians are as honest about themselves as this.
