The allegations against Saleem, who has been a respected Muslim leader in Chicago for decades, surfaced in December, when leading Muslim scholar referred to them in a blog. [Cross-reference to that post not provided in the article - ed.]To his credit, Mr Saleem has returned to the States to face the charges.
The case Saleem had created tensions in Chicago’s large Muslim community among those who believe such allegations are better handled by religious and community leaders and those who believe they should be reported immediately to police.
But we will know we are winning when "respected Moslem scholar" takes on the same sort of odor that "Soviet ideologist" acquired in the 1980s, and that "postmodern intellectual" holds in circles more respectful of logic.
