“Can Muslims who live in free and democratic societies, simultaneously demand freedom to practice Islam and then turn around and use these same freedoms to impose anachronistic understandings of Islam on others?”

Dr. Muqtedar Khan

    Of course!

    The current reality is that a democracy is a tyranny of a majority, increasingly likely to be made up of altruistic masochists.

    I guess we have to assume this question is rhetorical? Duh!

    The source was from an article condemning this practice:

    Dr. Khan argues against his co-religionists. Well done K. Of course, your fellow Muslims will kill you for it.

    It may be in very poor taste but yes, they do have the right to spread their religion. That is the beauty and the Achilles’ heel of our kind of open and free society. What’s that old saying? ..I don’t agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it. So why should we stoop to their level? Hopefully people will someday rise above such foolishness and laugh at the very ideas Muslims and other religions propose.
