Well it looks like the debate “Islam is incompatible with democracy” was quite a success last night. So who won?
1200 people packed the City Hall last night, and after arguments from both sides, got to choose which side won. The verdict – the proposition went down by a narrow margin of 52 to 48 per cent.
Interestingly enough, in the on-line poll attached to today’s SMH article, the affirmative currently have it with a narrow margin of 54 to 46 per cent.
So perhaps, when people actually get to hear both sides of the argument they can make a more informed decision, and realise Islam may be compatible with democracy? Only time will tell.
Have a read of the SMH article, vote in the poll, and have your say here.
