Many Muslim cab drivers in Minneapolis are refusing to allow passengers carrying alcohol in their cabs, saying it is against the Islamic Shariah [law] to do so. More than half the taxi drivers on the airport are Muslims, and as soon as they got a majority, they have resorted to imposing their beliefs on others. Imagine if you have just flown in from Baghdad after a long flight, you canÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢t wait to get home, reconnect with your family, and share a glass of some exotic alcoholic drink that you purchased at the Dubai airport [a Muslim country] with your wife to celebrate your return home alive from Iraq. It is 2:00 AM, but your reunion is delayed because cab after cab, driven by Muslims, refuses to take you home once they spot you carrying alcohol. Sounds crazy, but sadly it is true.http://www.altmuslim.com/perm.php?id=1824_0_25_0_M

To your given link below my brother i come up with an answer to clear this inshaAllah.
"Let there be no compulsion in religion" [Quran: 2:256]
"To us shall be accounted our deeds, and to you, your deeds. Let there be no contention between us and you: God will bring us all together - for with Him is all journey�s end" [Quran, 42:15].
As Quran said, no compulsion in religion that means that no one can forcefully impose anyone to accept Islam, if Minneapolis taxi drivers asked there passengers to accept islam or they will not take them in there cab than its wrong, but if they are not allowing any passenger to get into there cab with HARAM things than its totally there own wish and no law or rule of country can stop them to do so.
Ok, What Dubai is doing is other thing and understand my one thing that Allah made a book of Law named Quran, it has every orders, dos, and dont do lists in that but still no body is stopping you from doing sins and only Allah will see u after your death or even in your life by punishments and cursings. Now its upon the Sheikhs of Dubai and Allah and those muslims who are doing sins.
As salamu alykum.
