remember yazid?? he was also liberal and secular and took his liberties and freedoms too far. and then look where these liberties took him. he was not a kafir or mushrik. he was a muslim and son of a prominent Sahabi. but he took the liberty/freedom of drinking, he took the liberty/freedom of not performing obligatory prayers/fasting/zakat etc. he took the liberty/freedom of performing zina, he took the liberty/freedom of abusing government authority. and ended up martyring the Ahl-e-Bait.
I am not sure what you understand by being liberal, not everything is liberal even if people want to call it liberalism.
I will limit this discussion to example given by you about what I think of being liberal.
Now what you said about Yazid is all slanders, I don't find any evidence of what you said about him, I took the liberty and exercised my freedom of thought and research and dug further into this whole made up story ................ I don't believe a single word based on circumstances and the evidence it points to. Yazid was ameer ul momineen and I as a Muslim won't try maligning his character or indulge in slander attacking his character.
This discussion is derailing this thread, if you wish to discuss further please take it to some appropriate thread. Thanks
