Calormenes are not Muslims

They can't be. Calormenes are polytheistic. Muslims are monotheistic. And Lewis, being some kind of Oxford educated religious scholar professor, probably knew that.

So, let's all move on to what the Calormenes actually DO represent and have a civil and interesting discussion. (And let's also note that while Calormene culture is pretty messed up, with its tolerance for crappy behavior and slavery and ish, we need to look at individiual Calormenes, not just Calormenes as a whole. Let's definitely not be all like, "Calormenes are this and they represent that," because that's too simplistic.)
