- In my religion blasphemy is a very serious thing for many people, including me. In such circumstances, there are advantages for all if blasphemy is a public offence rather than a private matter. Moreover, in several Arab countries insulting any established religion is an offence. Irrespective of anything else, that probably makes sense sometimes too. In a practical sense, these laws (and social norms), do not stop interfaith debate on religious matters in either the public or private sphere.Mar 29, 2012
- I agree on what you say (and I confirm once again that a rape is a crime regards the reasons behind it). However, you being happy to pay taxes and following conventions is a lovely thing, I think that you would change your mind if you reconsider the matter with a deeper thought.
My point is that these laws are being passed everywhere, if only we were (the media basically) to be partial when dealing with them in different countries.Mar 29, 2012
- Yes - especially as in terms of women's issues generally in the Islamic world, as hard as it may be to believe, Islam may not be the most important factor, or even a particularly important factor. Alternatively often one is talking about a debate within Islam. Try reading "Paradise Beneath Her Feet" by Isobel Coleman - which is about women's movements within Islam, women's rights and similar.Mar 29, 2012
- If there was no law, some people would take matters into their own hands. Hence a general rule about not insulting any established religion can make sense when people have strong religious views.Mar 29, 2012
