We endeavour to go beyond divisive racial, religious, tribal, and sectarian constructs, and instead, contribute to a universal humanity.
Open Letter to Liberal Muslims
Maarten Boudry | 14 October 2014
Dear liberal Muslim,
I address this open letter to all of you who profess a tolerant and peaceful Islam; who have no wish to impose their religious views on others; who are prepared to live in peace with Christians, atheists, Hindus and Jews; who endorse the bedrock principles of a secular democracy, including the separation of religion and state, freedom of expression, and universal human rights.
