Many Muslim-majority countries do not provide adequate protection for dissent of any sorts—religious, social, or political. In the realm of religious dissent, these countries persecute not just non-Muslims, but in fact, the persecution is harshest and most frequent against Muslim dissenters. This paper explores how protection for intragroup dissent in these countries is the first and most crucial step in protecting dissent more broadly and lays out both the current state of affairs and several avenues for reform.
