Freedom of Speech wins in case of Pastor Terry Jones V.  City of Detroit.

Dallas, Texas – September 3, 2013.  Congratulations to U.S. District Judge Denise Page Hood for upholding our constitution and freedom of speech in a public place.  We also I congratulate Pastor Jones for fighting for his constitutional rights.  Even though I do not agree with Pastor Terry Jones hate for Muslims, I would have defended his right to free speech in the public square.  That is the right thing to do.
Freedom of speech must be cherished, admired and defended at any cost. Ultimately truth triumphs over everything and truth alone is sustainable.  The most important test of freedom is when you are willing to stand up for other’s freedom.  Why should anyone stand up for you, if you are not willing to do the same? 

As Muslims and Americans we honor the free speech guaranteed in our constitution. We say, let freedom of expression be the rule to follow with no exceptions, we simply cannot go wrong.

All the great things are born out of freedom; if the great reformers in Religious, Social, Medical, Mathematical, and Engineering did not have the freedom to do the right thing, none of us would have witnessed the good things we are relishing today. 
Judge Page Hood agrees, “City of Dearborn’s (Ordinances) are declared unconstitutional and are in violation of Plaintiff’s First Amendment rights.” We further agree with Jones’ attorney Richard Thompson of the Thomas More Law Center in Ann Arbor: “Judge Hood’s ruling upholds a bedrock principle of the First Amendment, that government cannot inhibit the expression of an idea just because some find the idea offensive.” Detroit News. 
Indeed our constitution should win every time. It’s grounded in solid principles to build a lasting society with liberty and justice for all.   In the long run every human wins with the free speech.
Muslim Americans have stood up for free speech and will continue to stand by it. Here is a list of articles to be consistent.
