I’m not interested in examples of where Islam has co-existed with another world religion in the past or even where it is currently co-existing with one or more religions today. The reasons for that co-existence may simply be that Islam did not have sufficient strength to overcome its rivals.
No, what I want to know is whether Islam theoretically can peacefully co-exist with non-Islamic religions even when it has the power to snuff them out.
Put another way, if you are a Muslim, and you had the means to bring an end to every religion on earth except Islam, would you choose to do so if this required conversion by force of those who did not wish to accept Islam voluntarily?
