Low Expectations: Tariq Ramadan and Tahir ul-Qadri

If correctly reported, this response to allegations of rape levelled against Tariq Ramadan is both perverse and dangerous.
[Professor Eugene] Rogan reminded students: “It’s not just about sexual violence. For some students it’s just another way for Europeans to gang up against a prominent Muslim intellectual. We must protect Muslim students who believe and trust in [...]

MEND and Parliament – This is no way to help Muslims

I suppose the MPs on this list think they are helping Muslims by welcoming MEND to Parliament next week. (Click the images in this post to enlarge them.)

If this is what Joanna Cherry, Ed Davey, Stephen Kinnock, Caroline Lucas, Anna Soubry, and Wes Streeting think, they could not be more wrong.
The Muslims [...]

MEND, Muslim Women, and the Labour Party

How to empower Muslim women? I can think of one good way – challenging views like this one:
I also want to briefly mention something about women in the workplace: I am an absolute extremist in this issue in that I don’t have any time for the opposing arguments. Women should not be in the [...]

Five Go Off on Jihad

Has anyone been watching The State on Channel 4?  It’s the story of four British jihadis, two girls, two boys plus Isaac the boy who go off to Syria to join the Daesh state.  Lashings of lashings, and full helpings of heads on spikes.

Corbyn Can’t Defend Us Against His Friends

I’ll keep this brief because this one point is all that needs to be said:

This is a cross-post from Rambling Infidel
Here is an extract from Rambling Infidel’s post – do read the full piece here.
My emotions are surging full of rage at the evil committed by the depraved savages responsible for this heartless murder of innocents. This wasn’t an attack on the powerful. It was not aimed at Presidents [...]

Alyas Karmani on Islamic State and Zionism

Many Salafi Muslims like to claim that their way is one of the best bulwarks against violent extremism.
Usually the pitch is bakwas, to be multicultural about it.
They may well oppose Islamic State, but the way they go about it only makes things worse.
Alyas Karmani provides a lesson from this field in the clip below. [...]

Extremism in the news: Maajid vs Tommy

Today the Times reports that the charity commission has asked Islamic Relief to explain why it is hosting Yasir Qadhi’s fundraising tour of Britain:
Yasir Qadhi, a Saudi-educated American academic, has been recorded apparently telling students that killing homosexuals and stoning adulterers was part of their religion. Dr Qadhi, who features in an eight-city tour starting [...]

Jonathan Brown on sex slavery

So who is Jonathan Brown?
Jonathan Brown is the Alwaleed bin Talal Chair of Islamic Civilization in the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, and he is the Director of the Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim Christian Understanding.
Brown has recently hit the headlines for defending the practices of slavery and concubinage in a lecture. [...]
