Do I misunderstand Linda Woodhead's position as being inconsistent when she states ("Stand up for moderation", The Tablet, 12 April) states that “majority opinion is being swamped by small and unrepresentative groups with strongly illiberal agendas” and then interprets her own research in the UK where “only 3.6 per cent of the population hold fundamentalist views and only 7 per cent of Anglicans – far smaller proportions than we have been led to believe”?
What exactly is being “swamped”? It is of importance for me in Kolkata during national election times, when the issue of fundamentalism is an important factor in a country avowedly secular.
