British Muslims for Secular Democracy plan counter demonstration

News reaches the Voice about a demo planned for next Saturday.

British Muslims for Secular Democracy today announces the launch of its 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”.

We have produced a video that explains why we’re demonstrating

Please join us via our website, at www.seculardemocracy.org, and via our Facebook page.

Invite your friends, send them the video, and help get the word out, and see you in Piccadilly Circus, 1 pm, Saturday 31 October.

  • “They are very silly people”

    Shades of Graham Chapman’s (?) rebuff of Mr Luxury-Yacht on discovering his name was pronounced “throat wobbler-mangrove” – “Your a very silly man and I’m not going to speak to you”

    A much under-used phrase in political debate I feel 🙂

  • Disestablish the Church of England, please.

  • Brilliant stuff. If there’s one thing that fascism hates, it’s ridicule.
