Don't ban it, oblige to read it in school

Reader comment on item: Ban Islam?

Submitted by Steve (Netherlands), Aug 30, 2007 at 04:03

Then students and other people can open their eyes what the Koran says and how the Islam looks upon them, I think this would be much more efficient than banning it. Most of the Muslim society cannot read (and naturally haven't read their Koran) and this is the backbone of their religion (or almost any religion in the past). When persons can read and start to think for themselves they are also going to question things, this is what happened to the Catholics 400/500 years ago. So for western people, oblige them to read it and force them to see how dangerous it is with their own mind.
