Islam and tolerance

2 posts in this topic

As someone who was born in Iran and grown up in an Islamic country; I just want make it clear, up to 18th century and while Ottoman Empire was at its peak of power all non-Muslims were paying JAZEYEH (some sort of tax for non-Muslims while they are living in an Islamic land!) and had no right for high-office elections etc. During 18th century and while Ottoman Empire was falling apart and in general all around the world the concept of human rights and equality was gaining momentum, conflicts start all around the world. In reality, there was no period of time that Muslims and non-Muslims were living together in peace. It was a period that Muslims were masters and let the others lives among them as second-class citizen, but there was no time in history that they live in peace with nonbelievers as equal!

Humans, and their rights have no place in a religion that lives for the afterlife.
