Reforming Islam: Where change comes from

http://www.economist.com/blogs/erasmus/2015/01/reforming-islam

But it can and will change from within, as the founding texts and traditions are reread and refracted by successive generations. Nobody can predict which way that change will go—and there is not just one, single historical path along which it will or won't progress.
