An injury to one is an injury to all – Bruce Kent defends religious freedom

“Virtually everybody in Britain today accepts that the right to freedom of religion and expression is a fundamental pillar of any democratic society. Yet in practice that freedom is under threat, at least for some of our communities – notably British Muslims. And we all need to understand that, because human freedoms are indivisible, if we allow such rights to be undermined for any one group, they will be undermined for all of us.”
