A Bangladeshi court has issued an arrest warrant for the writer of a 2003 novel “Bhanga Math” (“Broken Temple”). The book has already been banned for insulting Mohammed. The court issued the order in response to a petition from an Islamist accusing the author Salam Azad of hurting religious sentiment. And did you hear about …

The veil is yet another restriction on women

I’ve been meaning to comment on a recent article in the Guardian (surprise, surprise) about how wonderfully liberating the hijab is and am glad I was reminded of it today. The author, Nadiya Takolia, says: …in a society where a woman’s value seems focused on her sexual charms, some wear it explicitly as a feminist …

We must defend free expression to fight Islamism and sharia

As you know, One Law for All has recently been involved in campaigning to defend freedom of expression, both here and abroad. We will continue to do so.

Hoping that we return to the right path

Here is one more of the many emails we get at the Council of Ex-Muslims for you to enjoy. It’s heartwarming, really,  to see all the concern. Here Khalid Najib asks why we don’t all ‘return to the right path’. Err, Khalid, please don’t bother holding your breath. And thanks for asking but no thanks. …

People’s beliefs are only respectable to themselves

And a fight it is… This like everything else of his is a must read: Azar Majedi: In a recent interview with Porsesh magazine you said, “secularism is a set of minimum conditions”, and that [you] “do not want …

Inaccurate, dogmatically secularist scaremongering!?

Ah yes, the old ‘inaccurate, dogmatically secularist scaremongering [which] plays directly into the hands of the far right and will be used to bolster a racist narrative about the Islamic threat to the West’ response to Joan Smith’s article on the Islamist threat to free expression. I know, I know. Saying that people have a right to …

It’s not Islamic

An Iranian mullah who has been insulted says: …This must be understood in this country. They must in practice pull out their tongues. What reason is there I am walking and they must insult me, a clergyman; why insult the sacred? In an Islamic society at that. Whilst this brings us back to the importance of free …

More hellfire waiting just for you if you celebrate Christmas
