Vijay you should make sure that the freedom of expressions is used only to vilify Islam and it's prophets. World renowned and ultrasecular painter M.F.Hussein had to flee India when Ashok Pandey of Hindu Personal Law board declared a large bounty for his head when he misused freedom of expression by drawing "obscene" painting of Saraswati (Hindu Goddess) There were also widespread rioting all over india. Similar protests and rioting occured when skimpy aussy models wore bikinis with pictures of hindu gods. But now people in the west know very well where exactly they should use their freedom of expression. So you do not have to worry. Now and then they may make mistake like killing of sikhs for looking like muslims. So you will have to remind them where their freedom ends and make sure that they express this only to vilify muslims and hurt their feelings.
