I appreciate your passion for Islam. I also respect how you think that 1400 years old concepts are still valid today – most of them may be valid but many are outdated (DNA test versus 4 male witnesses). We are mere humans – we can’t decide what is best for us, right? Each one of us has his/her own destiny in this world, and a government has no business in deciding this for us. Most importantly, the government should manage affairs of the state, not interpret our religion for us.
This country could be so much more amazing if it could become secular, so that religion has nothing to do with government of the state. Dogma divides us, and will continue to do so until we all take a stand or this country will break into tiny little pieces.
Beliefs are a private matter, not a public issue. My mother recites the kalma thrice while washing a new dish for the first time. Your mother doesn’t have to do the same thing, right? Or should we get the government to make this practice compulsory, and punishable by law if not adhered to? Maybe someone sends an SMS about someone who doesn’t recite the kalma while washing their new dishes and then they get tried in court for a blasphemy charge? Dig?
