I really like this

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: secular democracy is the Islamic way forward

Submitted by true believer (India), Jun 15, 2006 at 10:36

Thank you Abdul Rehman, I really appreciate your post. I myself belong to one of the eastern Syrian Churches and we have segregation inside the Church. Also women are supposed to cover their head for the mass. Though nobody forces it, people generally follow it. If somebody were to force it I would really hate it. I think we all have a conscience that pricks us when we do wrong. No law can guide one better that his/her own conscience. That does not mean that laws are not needed, they should be humane, helpful and corrective instead of being punitive.
