Difference as the basis for cultural encounter. An Islamic perspective

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Islam asserts that each person has an inalienable right to difference, which is, in fact, the very thing that makes us individuals. Difference, therefore, can be neither reduced nor eliminated. On the contrary, the legislature must affirm and respect it, remaining bound by it as the ideal model. If it succeeds in doing so, the rule of the majority may inch closer to the rule of justice in contemporary society.
