My take on Why Shariah Must Be Opposed

Reader comment on item: Why Shariah Must Be Opposed

As a Muslim, I believe that Zulfikar Ali Khan should have been more open in his approach. This is what I have gathered from the text of the article. He may be a Muslim, but there are others who are not and could possibly relish eating pork. It is their right.

What has this short sighted act got to do with the Shariah? It is the individual who acted on his belief. Had he really wanted to enforce his belief, he could have issued a circular to the residents of the home of his proposed action and given them a choice to stay on and eat halal meat or leave at their earliest convenience. I really think a mountain is being made from a mole hill here.

Again, why can't a Muslim live his life in accordance with his faith? is he breaking the law of the land? If he is breaking the law of the land, then prosecute him with due process of law. Otherwise let him continue to practice his belief. I think the problem here is there is fear of the Muslims and Islam. You should have nothing to fear because they prefer their company to the company of others. Now if that irks you, then the problem is yours and not the Muslims. The Muslims have not asked for additonal land to accomodate "natural growth" at the cost of anyone else as Benjamin Nathanyahu has. I have not heard one person say that this demand smacks of the Nazi concept of Lebensraum ...

Be careful of the day the Muslim's anger comes to the forefront. I guarantee there won't be much left of this world to talk about. We are human like you and if that is hard for you to accept then we will reduce you to the status you accord us.Of that be sure. But we will not take any more guff from the West.
