The Templeton Prize for progress in religion was awarded this week to Muslim Inamullah Khan, but Jewish leaders protested the recognition, saying that he heads an anti-Israel and anti-Semitic organization. Khan is the first member of the Islamic faith to win the $390,000 prize, the largest in the world and about $40,000 more than the Nobel prizes.

Presentation of the 1988 Templeton Prize Progress in Religion has been postponed for the first time in its 15-year history because of criticisms made against the recipient, the secretary general of the World Muslim Congress. Inamullah Khan last month was named as winner of the $369,000 award, the richest international prize of any kind.

The Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion was awarded without fanfare last month to Pakistani scholar Inamullah Khan--a ceremony that London newspapers say was hushed up following complaints by Jewish groups. However, an Australian government official this week denied that there was any controversy. The official, who refused to be identified by name in accordance with government custom, said: "By no means was it hushed up and there has not been any controversy as far as we know."

In Bosnia, chasms of blood flow amid the rivalries that separate Orthodox Christians and Muslims. Look to the East and see the banners of Islam and Judaism waved by the bitterest opponents of peace in biblical lands, and Hindus and Sikhs at each other's throats in India. Look to the West, and Protestants and Catholics kill in Northern Ireland.
