Why a Muslim Fights for Diversity, Tolerance and Freedom

Why don’t we see thousands of muslims protesting against terrorists who are murdering on behalf of the Koran? Why do they stand aside silently while their religion is being corrupted by radical Muslim brothers and sisters? Why do they not fight against racism out on the streets shouting to protect their rights? Hassan Geuad created the initiative “12MemoRise” in order to provoke some answers to these questions with spectacular actions. But doing so let him get caught in the middle: It’s still a big no-go for Muslims to criticize other Muslims. After his fiancĂ©e was pressured into breaking up with him by her family and he received several death threats, he decided to tell his story of a fight for a modern Islam and a more tolerant society
