Sad day in Malaysia


The verdict for Lina Joy's case is out, and it does not surprise me one bit. Sad though, but expected.

Is the concept of 'freedom of choice' so alien to Muslims around the world? Why is it that day in, day out we read endless reports on how people are being hacked to death, blown up to bits, arrested by the government for even giving the slightest sliver of a thought to the renouncement of their Muslim faith? Sure, every religion has its fair share of narrow-minded zealots, but on a scale such as this? Do Muslims really believe that religion can be 'forced' upon someone?

Those questions are swirling around in my mind, but the answers to them continue to prove elusive.
