Freedom And Law

Recommended Posts

As I read the news I wonder why freedom is such a rare quality in Muslim majority lands. Even if we take Turkey which is supposed to have a secular constitution we see that it has the worst record in the world for locking up journalists.


It seems that Islam wants everyone to pray in the same way to dress in the same way to speak only Arabic so conformity is it seems to me demanded and so Islam deposes any culture not its own. This reminds me of the story of the Tower of Babel in the Bible where the whole world spoke a single language but God intervened and so multiple languages and cultures were born. The lesson is clear, forced conformity brings intolerance and the hate of the other.
