TOLERANCE IN ISLAM
There is a history of tolerance in Islam toward other religions.
This could be because of the verse in the Quran that states there should be no compulsion in religion.
"Let there be no compulsion in religion:
Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things (Quran Verse 2:256)."
