Take an example from Christians: most of us don’t use tribunals to slap back anti-Christian attacks, because to do so is to pour gas on a fire that is already burning us. As Syed Soharwardy has publicly stood up and proclaimed, it’s only a matter of time until the HRCs bite Muslims, and punish their views. Omar? Hello? Is this thing on? …. (
