Vakkom Moulavi

Vakkom Moulavi THIS letter serves to clarify a point in the article by Thomas Isaac and Michael Tharakan on 'Kerala: Towards a New Agenda' (August 5-12). In a reference to my paper on the 'Reform Agenda of Vakkom Moulavi', the authors wrote: "Vakkom Moulavi held that the laws of Islam concerning temporal matters were not commutable, and hence..." (p 2000), In fact, the sentence should have been "the laws of Islam concerning temporal matters were not immutable, and hence...". The sentence, as it appeared in EPW makes the opposite meaning. It may be that a typographical error inadvertently crept into the article.
