Muslim group to demonstrate against Al Muhajiroun and for Secular Democracy

-2British Muslims for Secular Democracy has announced plans to organise a demonstration on Saturday 31st October to counter a demonstration by Al Muhajiroun, at which they will call for the abolition of democracy in Britain and the imposition of Shariah Law on all.
That demonstration has been called by Islam 4 UK – a successor organisation to Al Muhajiroun. British Muslims for Secular Democracy are organising the counter demonstration, bringing together a number of religious and non-religious groups.

Shaaz Mahboob, vice-chair of British Muslims for Secular Democracy says:

“Our counter-demonstration is based on our belief in, and commitment to, those liberal values that define the British state, including legal and constitutional equality for all, equal rights for women and minorities, and religious freedom, including the right to be free of faith.”

The group has produced a video that explains why they’re demonstrating.

Pat Harrington commented:- “We oppose firmly any imposition of Sharia Law but are open to talking about how those who wish to could use it to settle civil disputes. We don’t class all Muslims as one and recognise the diversity within that Faith. This group is just one of many which breaks the stereotyping of that community.”
