Islam Shouldn’t Be An Exception

featuring Ayaan Hirsi Alivia The Australian
Sunday, March 12, 2017

[Subscription Required] Ayaan Hirsi Ali is coming to ­Australia soon to speak about ­reforming traditional Islam and confronting militant Islam. There are people and organisations trying to prevent her from coming or speaking. They describe her as an “extremist” who engages in “hate speech”. They are in error. She must be allowed both to come here and to speak. In a liberal society one is free to choose and to change one’s ­religion, one is free to not adhere to any religion and one is free to ­inquire, read, speak and write ­critically of religions, political ­ideologies and other matters, ­including law and morals.
