TAKING OFFENSE AT ONE'S RELIGION BEING CRITICIZED
We live in a pluralistic world that contains many different religious and many people who do not follow any religion at all. Unless we want to give up social freedom and humaneness, we have to let people of different religious views coexist, which means also to allow them to criticize each other, as long as they don't try to physically harm others or force their views upon them. There are secular law codes about slander and libel that can be resorted to if criticism is unwarranted or untruthful, which is the proper channel to deal with such problems.

If Muslims are going to proclaim it an injustice to the world when anyone offends them, they must be willing to respect that other groups may also be offended, including by what Islam teachers and by what Muslims say or do. It is not the case that Islam has had a history of not criticizing or offending those of others beliefs, and that Islam therefore should expect no criticism in return.
