In response to Dr Sarah Verghis, I believe granting equal rights to all religions doesn't necessarily mean all religions should be treated equally. While there are some universal values shared by all religions, each religion certainly has unique characteristics which we must honour and respect. This is one of the fundamental problems facing today's world that we fail to respect and appreciate the unique differences among the many world religions.
For example, while separating state and religion might not transgress the teaching of other religions, it is, indeed, against the very basic tenets of Islamic teaching. This could be one of the many unique characteristics in Islam which must be respected by others. Forcing Muslims to accept separation of state and religion is a gross violation of Muslims rights to religious practice.
Putting all religions into one basket without considering their own unique characteristics doesn't seem much different from banning all religious practise as communism.
We Muslims never asked for superiority above others. We simply ask to be allowed to practise our religion as our complete way of life, the way we believe it should be practised, without interferences by others.
For Muslims, we have clear instruction from our God; 'To you be your religion, and to me my religion." (The Quran 109:6).
While we refuse to live in the 'same basket', we would not at all be in any position to put others in jeopardy because we are obligated to live in peace and harmony with all others.
