I am saddened by the news that one of the great Islamic thinkers of our era passed away yesterday.  Mohammed Arkoun was the subject of severe criticism  for his constant calls  in his writings, lectures and interviews  for a modern interpretation of Islam. 
Underappreciated in his time and even ahead of  it.  But a necessary voice of reason in these dire times.
May he rest in peace.
For more on Arkoun read here and here.
