Popular Youtube user Karim Metwaly has deconstructed Amos Yee’s arguments about the Quran, but without any of the foul vulgarity of the teen blogger.
In a post which has now been taken offline, Amos quoted verses from the Muslims’ holy book and argued against its tenets. He hen tore the pages of his copy of the religious text and provocatively humped it.
Besides giving a matured response to Amos, Karim a Muslim New Yorker said that he defends Amos’ right to free speech.
“He should exercise his right to free speech, because it brings people like me and other Muslims to actually look in, do research, and bring us back to our religion,” Karim said.
“So he’s actually doing us a favour,” he concludes.

The 17-year-old was arrested on May 11 has posted bail of S$5,000.
