I didn't know it was illegal to practise Islam in private gatherings in Western countries

I didn't know Western leaders have openly said they wish to stop Islam in their countries.
(In Iran, where the president has repeatedly said, "I want to stop Christianity in this country," a few months later, a Protestant pastor was murdered because he himself converted from Islam. It is important to note that all five schools of Islamic law agree that the penalty for conversion - "apostasy" - is death.)
