Postbag: Violent history lesson

- +

In his letter, ''In Defence of Muslims'', Mahamas Kromas continually mixes up nationalism with religion. Christianity was indeed a brutal religion but this was during the Middle Ages, when the church was burning, torturing and murdering ''heretics''. By the same token, Saladin, who led the Islamic armies into the Holy Land, did no better. Mr Kromas, read your history book.
