I didn't ask you the question whether Muslim countries dictate dress laws or not. I asked after your beliefs?

Do you beleive in freedom of expression?

- If you do - how do you consolidate the fact that you can tell people what to do and believe in freedom.

The whole point of course is that those countries do not beleive in the western sense of freedom. And that is why they tell ppl what to do.
