There’s of course an easy and obvious remedy in solving this issue of what Muslim’s consider “an oppressive campaign” of “forced assimilation”…that obvious remedy, “don’t migrate to those countries that expect you to assimilate”, it’s really that easy.
However according to recent reports from Australia, the national anthem of that country for a majority of Muslims is “oppressive,” or at least that is the claim that the Islamist activist group Hizb ut-Tahrir claimed at the “Innocent Until Proven Muslim” conference at Bankstown, the western part of Sydney.
The conference was attended by about 800 people.
Uthman Badar, the spokesman for the group, claims that the Australian government “claims to afford freedom, but seeks to impose values and beliefs” on Muslims.
He continued; “It’s not enough that you obey the law, no, you have to adopt our values,” Mr. Badar told the conference.
The conference is just one example of the refusal of Muslims to assimilate to the countries that they choose to be a part of. Is it oppressive to ask that the community show pride and respect for their home?
