This story breaks your heart.  It demonstrates the root of Islam — subjugation, not freedom, in spite of the Qur’an’s insistence, “…there is no compulsion in religion…” (Qur’an 2:256).  “Compulsion in religion” occurs not only when you force religion upon someone, but also, when one is prohibited from freely exercising their views — positive or negative– about a religion.  If we are “compelled” to speak favorably about Islam, then the Qur’an 2:256 above cited is violated by Islam.  The article below tells the plight of a Christian mother of five living in Pakistan who was accused of blaspheming Muhammad.   She denies the charge, but regardless of whether it is true, her plight is evidence of the contradictions rampant in the so-called “religion of peace.”
