Open debate in Muslim communities needed
by Tahir Aslam Gora
It seems that freedom of expression was not that much worse 1,500 years ago as we observe it deteriorating today.
For instance, Prophet Muhammad exercised his rights of freedom of expression in his full capacity by challenging the prevailing beliefs of the time and calling them mere lies.
Despite the opposition to his claims, he had open and huge support from his allies.
But today, in a so-called liberal and enlightened world, challenging some Islamic beliefs is not that easy.
