SHAFAQNA- Freedom of religion has deep roots in the Islamic tradition, said Dr. Craig Considine, a Christian Scholar. “Freedom of religion” is popularly viewed as a “Western value,” but evidence from the 7th century shows that it has deep roots in the Islamic tradition. For example, while serving as a Leader in Medina, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) allowed Jews & Christians to openly practice their faith”,  Considine wrote in his Twitter account.

Dr. Craig Considine is a Catholic American and native of Massachusetts. He is a scholar, global speaker, media contributor, & public intellectual at Rice University. As a sociologist, he focuses on religion, Islam, Christianity, interfaith, race and ethnicity, identity as well as comparative research and ethnography. He is the Author of many books and articles on Christian-Muslim relations.
