Leftist ex-Muslim: No Place For Sharia in the UK

By Nahla Mahmoud/Left Foot Forward

Sharia discriminates against non-believers, atheists and apostates.

I have seared in my memory the brutal persecutions and executions of many atheists and scientists for the “crime” of critical thinking.  My stand is about supporting freedom of expression, freedom of religion or no-religion. I stand for human rights in order to support equal rights for all citizens despite our gender, age, sexuality, religion or ethnicity.

I believe this is everyone’s battle, including progressive, secular and liberal Muslims.

We must, each of us, strongly and unequivocally demand one equal law for everyone – both here in the UK and abroad.– Sharia Law has no place in Britain or anywhere else
