During a recent interview, I was asked the following question: “You are calling for more freedoms, what are these freedoms?” I said, all kinds of freedoms; let’s start with personal freedom. “So anyone becomes free to choose, and to speak his mind,” I added. After living for 22 years in this land, I have come to the conclusion that the word freedom is nearly meaningless here. I find it difficult to understand how someone can be so threatened by the ideas of others, but to feel threatened by the mere appearance of others is really beyond my comprehension. I mean, how can a pair of jeans, an expressive t-shirt, or a weird haircut be dangerous for a religion, society or culture?
