I wonder why Mr Riaz stopped in mid sentence and did not go into more detail here . He could have explained exactly which freedoms he likes - and which ones he does not like.

Does it include the freedom of association, the ability to vote for democratically elected representatives in government, the freedom to go where one pleases , to do and think and say what one wishes, the freedom to criticise? To drink alcohol, listen to music, change one's religion or have none? The freedom to break the law and not be punished with barbaric, medieval ,draconian punishments? The freedom for women to do and say as they wish and wear what they want ?

There may be some technical difficulties there for adherents of some non-western cults - but this is what the west is all about.
