Who was a Muslim ruler who mandated religious and cultural toleration?

In general, tolerance is not something which "mandates" well; at best, one can lead by example and try to rule justly. It is, sadly, far easier to whip up INtolerance.

Generally speaking, Egypt does observe religious freedom. However, there may be extremists who do not tolerate other religions.
A disposition to allow freedom of choice and behavior, no matter what the color or creed of other people is.
I believe that there was some Religious toleration in Colonial Massachusetts. Firstly, one must engage in the definition of tolerance and toleration. Tolerance and toleration is often misunderstood between liberal legacy and impeded efforts to improve upon it. This term, "toleration", is really a se…t of social or political practices while "toleration" is a set of attitudes. Works such as John Winthrop's City Upon a Hill, 1630 states that the society should "...walk humbly with our God, for this end we must be knit together in this work as one manâ¦so shall we keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace, the Lord will be our God and delight to dwell among usâ¦". This basically means that he wanted the Massachusetts Bay Colony to seek for a model religious and civil society based on a contract with God and one another. On the other hand, the Massachusetts Puritans exhibited intolerant anti-toleration. This, targeted the non believers as well as ones who did not follow the specific theocracy exhibited.

Included in any definition of religious tolerance are the relevantactions that many would see as a reasonable accompaniment of suchtolerance. Such things as not attacking, harassing, insulting,abusing, or putting down those of other beliefs would normally beincluded in such a practical working defin…ition. Deliberatelymisquoting the beliefs of another faith in order to subject them tocriticism is something that would fall outside of the definition oftolerance, while attempting to be sensitive and learn the truefacts of the situation from adherents would demonstrate tolerance. Answer A historic teaching held by the early Baptist congregations ofAmerica was "Individual Soul Liberty and Responsibility." Thisgreatly influenced our Constitution's framers to include religiousliberty for our rights. Religious tolerance thus was established aslaw in the newly formed nation. Simply stated, Individual Soul Liberty means that the individual,whether a believer in Christ or not, has the right to choose whathe believes is right in the religious realm, including variants ofChristian doctrine or otherwise. No state church was to be formed,as it was in England and many other countries, which would forcecitizens and residents to conform to its doctrines and practices. Although this is widely accepted as our right today. muchcontroversy exists over religious freedom, that endangers thatright. While some insist on having religious tolerance tonon-historic positions, the problem exists today of hypocriticalintolerance to common beliefs, which were accepted from the days ofour founding fathers. This historical basis of common nationalfaith is not an individual church or denominational teaching, butthat which is firmly ensconced in our laws and founding documents. Religious tolerance makes sense. If you force another to believeand practice what you believe, then it isn't truly accepted intheir hearts. Even Christ, in instructing His disciples said,"Whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when youdepart out of that house or city, shake the dust off your feet."Matthew 10:14 It is not that the disciples did not have the rightmessage, nor that there was no responsibility of the hearers torespond to the truth, but there was to be no forcing of the messageon anyone. People have the right to choose, yet they also haveresponsibility to what is true. Belligerent preaching or forcibly imposing ones beliefs on thebeliefs of another, is intolerance. In a free society such as oursthere should be tolerance of other beliefs, as long as these othersare not harming another's rights by their practice. To insist thatother's be tolerant of your beliefs, while not allowing othersfreedom of their beliefs, indeed is not religious tolerance. We currently stand in a vortex of a belief system that chooses tospread their beliefs by the sword. Americans should not toleratethis nor any other encroachment upon our religious freedom.Religious tolerance requires even-handedness, else it is hypocrisy. Answer To my understanding, the answer simply means tolerating andrecognising each other's religious beliefs, without any provocationor hindrances to practice. Answer Religious tolerance means different things for different people.For example, when Maryland passed the Maryland Toleration Act (alsoknown as the Act Concerning Religion) in 1649, the law mandatedreligious tolerance for Trinitarian Christians only and thereforenot true religious tolerance. In some countries, Muslims pridethemselves on religious toleration of other religions as requiredby the Koran, but this is really a very limited and exclusive formof religious tolerance. The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article18 uses a very sound definition of religious tolerance: " Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience andreligion; this right includes freedom to change his religion orbelief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others andin public or private, to manifest his religion or belief inteaching, practice, worship and observance ."

Muslim rulers were never tolerant to Hindus. Most of them are famous for their Temple destruction activity. They have written their "Idol Breaking" activity with pride in their chronicles. All of them imposed "Jizya Tax" on Hindus. The Hindu Officials were often charged with false charges and forced… to convert to Islam. Great-grandfather of Mohammad Iqbal, Pakistani poet was also converted to Islam in the same way. If the question is asking why Muslim Rulers did not forcibly convert Hindus when Hindus are clearly polytheists, the answer is that there were just too many Hindus and too many of them were in remote regions.

Religious minorities in Christian countries were generally persecuted. Once Christianity becamed the state religion of the Roman Empire, public worship of the pagan gods was banned and their temples were expropriated. Even minority Christian groups were banned. For example, the Albigensian Crusade w…as launched in 1209 to eliminate the "heretical" Cathars of southern France. The Inquisitions had a similar purpose. The limited exception to total persecution was Judaism, but even the Jews suffered harassment and occasional persecution. Islamic countries tolerated religious minorities among the "people of the Book" - Christians and Jews, subject to payment of a poll tax on non-Muslims. Other religious minorities were generally forced to convert to Islam. However, during much of history, the Iranian followers of Zoroastrianism were given somewhat the same status as "people of the Book", although there were periods of persecution. In India, the Hindus remained a majority, and were therefore permitted to practise their faith. ( Full Answer )

Answer 2 Mohammed made explicit calls to treat people of other monotheistic faiths as brothers and sisters in religion.
