There are far too many people using the right to ‘freedom of speech’ to incite hatred and hurt the feelings of over 1.2 billion muslims worldwide. Islam is a religion of peace and goodwill to everyone, and the actions of a few extremists and fundamentalists across the globe cannot be used to demonise and condemn a peaceful religion. Just like you wouldn’t hold Christianity responsible for groups such as the ku klux klan, you cannot hold Islam responsible for far right groups and undermine the values of millions across the globe. Freedom of speech shouldn’t be used to incite hatred against any religion and Islam values social togetherness and respect for all religions and the freedom to practice whatever faith you choose. It does not ‘hate’ on any religion or people but rather promote peace, love and understanding.
Just like the Jewish people have a law protecting them I would also like a law protecting Muslims, Christians and any other faith. The world would be a much better place if nobody was allowed to mock, ridicule or incite hatred for people of any faith. Let’s all work together to rule out hatred once and for all.
