«It is time to have a more relaxed approach to religion»

Olivier Roy talks to Nikolai Eberth

«Islam is being integrated into the West, but just as religion, not as a different culture,» says Olivier Roy, French scholar of Islam, in this Resetdoc interview. «Each country has to recognize Islam just like other religions. We need to integrate Islam within the existing framework and we should have a more open view of the relations between the state, the public sphere and religion. This, precisely because the new religious movements are first of all the expression of individual beliefs and not those of institutions.»

Your advance studies in Islam is good. That is i means yours' thinking more in the religion of Islam. However, i wanna ask the world via you "Why are you all are so worry about Islam as serious? Is Islam is a mere religion of some portion of the world community uh? So, Islam is nothing more than other religions which you all devoted , Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Animism , etc.so, why you all are more concerned with one of the world religions ,Islam. Indeed, You should think more about justice , freedom and fairness within communities of the world throughout the history, not to the religions.Please don't play your political game with the tools "Religion of Islam". We all should not forget all historical evidences of mistakes on communities.
