    No, he can make protest posts on behalf of other religions as well.

    The general principle is that there are two main ways of interpretation that have been developed by scholars to understand the Quran. The first form involves explaining the Quran intra-textually, or in other words, allowing different verses from the Quran to clarify one another.The second form involves interpreting the Quran based on the example of the Prophet(hadith).

    Let's read what the Quran and the prophet have to say.

    "And among His Signs is that He created for you mates from among yourselves, that you may dwell in tranquility with them, and He put love and mercy between your hearts. Verily in that are signs for those who reflect” [Quran 30:21].

    "live with your wives in kindness and equity” [4:19]

    Prophet Muhammad said, “An honorable man treats women with honor and respect, and only a despicable person treats women poorly.”
    Other hadith, or narrations, relate the story of a companion of the Prophet who asked the Messenger, “What do you say [advise] about our wives?” to which the Prophet replied, “Share with them the same food you have for yourself, and clothe them by which you clothe yourself, and do not beat them, and do not revile them.”

    Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a true Heroine…And a true women’s rights activist. She cares about (as should anyone) all women in the world. Especially the women who suffer under Islam.

    That's your opinion. Ayaan Hirsi Ali is known for her anti-muslim rhetoric

    For example, during a 2007 interview with Reason Magazine Ali said, “I think that we are at war with Islam” and called for Islam to be “defeated.” Later in the interview, Ali suggested that the U.S. Constitution should be amended to allow for discrimination against Muslims saying, “There were no Muslim schools when the constitution was written. There were no jihadists.”
    Hirsi Ali has also referenced Islam as " a nihilistic cult of death"

    So as a muslim woman I don't see her as someone who cares about my rights.I haven't seen her support muslim women organizations or go in respectful dialogue. She's not any different from other muslim critics.

    Thank you for the information. I believe I have found the interview in question. It is a long interview but well worth reading.

    'The Trouble Is the West'

    I believe she makes some very good points and answers the questions honestly.

    Please discuss.

    You are 100 per cent wrong on my intentions, it was a response to the claims of a Muslim male, and an inquiry into how Muslim women see things, nothing more, nothing less.

    As I've stated several times here, your question or anyone's for that matter is best left for a Muslim not non-Muslims especially those that outright disagree with Islam.

    Indeed. Which is amply justified with facts.

    It is dangerous and irresponsible to disregard her sober up call as caused by her anti-muslim rethoric. It is rather the other way around.

    I know what you mean, but children in the West are allowed to go out and enjoy themselves. We no longer see them as cheap labour and we certainly do not expect to have sex with them at all never mind on demand.

    An Islamic man believes he owns his wife.

    I don't know about most Muslim women in general, but most Muslim women I know believe Islam affords them more rights than other religions.

    To be fair, there are other posters on this forum who don't identify as Muslim but become irrational in their defence of Islam.

    To be both fair and rational, claiming that Islam protects the rights of women more than other religions is not exactly a defense of Islam. The bar is pretty low. I think that some posters are irrational in their villification of Islam.
