If as full citizens of their respective countries who boast of being democratic nations and swear by freedom of speech and religion --- if Muslim citizen demand legal status for sharia -- for themselves and not for the rest ---- who is being intolerant by denying them their constitutional rights, Muslims or the likes of Barbara?
