“it is the duty of every true Muslim…”

Prince Charles has been commenting on “the duty of every true Muslim” in the aftermath of the bombings.

I get very uncomfortable when people who are clearly not Muslims themselves make pronouncements about Islamic theology. Tony Blair has done it before as well. Now we all know that Blair is high Anglican bordering on Catholic, so presumably he doesn’t believe that Mohammad was God’s last and pre-eminent prophet. He hardly seems to be in position to make judgements about who is and isn’t a true Muslim.

There’s nothing to stop him commenting on morality, or civic duty, or whatever.
