On Making Koran, Islam, etc. Illegal...

Reader comment on item: Ban Islam?

Submitted by J.S. (Canada), Aug 29, 2007 at 13:51

I am in agreement with your assessment. Such notions only serve for venting one's anger, but in sober moments of reflection the outright banning of the Koran, Islam, and so on is utterly ludicrous. Not only would such efforts never work (one can imagine some fanciful scenario in which a group of banned Muslims get together for an "illegal" prayer service -- I mean can anyone truly picture the police crashing down the doors to arrest and deport them? It would be something only imaginable in a totalitarian, fascist state), it would be utterly wrong to implement. (But, I would also agree that the Islamist versions require close monitoring, etc.)
