1Sahil B = ""It is true that the Quran does not hold the same respect for polytheistic religions as it does for
monotheistic ones. However, this is primarily a consequence of the fact that the Revelation was revealed
during a protracted and bloody war with the “polytheistic” Quraysh. The truth that is the Quranic designation
of “protected peoples” was highly flexible and was routinely tailored to match public policy. When Islam
expanded into Iran and India, both dualist Zoroastrians and certain polytheistic Hindu sects were
designated as dhimmi. And while the Quran does not allow any religion to violate core Muslim values, there
is no country in the world that does not restrict the freedom of religion according to public morality.
