Excellent @RehmanYasmin
Hate protests, mega phones, moody background guys, mans & vans at #andertonpark sch right now. On Jumma. In Ramzan-A period of internal reflection. This isn't ordinary Muslims practising faith. This is political Islamism on a cul de sac near you. #Islam
@BrumLeader @WMPolice @DamianHinds @educationgovuk @UKLabour Do you think your collective lack of leadership is emboldening far right religious fascism or helping community cohesion? #SRE
What I am pondering is this a reflection on how segregated #Birmingham is? Massive lgbt/left liberal middle class literally down the road. Why are they SO silent? Won't get away with this hate in #Manchester The young people I know would run them out of town.
Supporters of #andertonpark hate mob discussing their real thoughts on gay people "No mountain to throw them off"
Political Islam has always engaged in this double speak. White middle class liberals really haven't got a clue. I warned about this duplicity for years #SRE
Photos courtesy of @mangyowl1 Religious lobby groups practise this double speak. It's not new. Wasn't usually supported by liberals/left but we are in strange times. Question is if you collude with/support groups that deny human rights for all, why do you think you are safe? #SRE
If you treat the extremism of white men in power differently (by excusing the latter) to brown men in power then you are enabling #HandmaidsTale for minority women. Many of us who are already fighting against systematic oppression within religious environments. #Religion
Before I bow out for the weekend, some thoughts. This issue isn't going away. It's is already a major issue of state v faith & separation of them at macro level & vigilantism at micro level. There are complex reasons for how we got here but it's not too late #religion
To do something about it. If we champion human rights approach with clear limitations on ideological movements which essentially is what religion is then it becomes really simple. No extreme ideological positioning/lobbying in state provisions. #religion
No race/sex/sexuality/disability etc segregation in public places. All faith institutions having to adhere to equality laws so no back door for women in mosques if they get in at all etc. What we lack is political leadership because of othering of non-white people #Religion
And the Church of England collusion in providing cover for minority religions who haven't reformed. CoE is a massive silent partner in these issues. Millions of Muslims are leaving a religion they are assigned at birth due to indoctrination. #religion
Things will and are changing because humans don't stand still. Look at #WhiteWednesdays protests, young people fleeing Saudi Arabia etc. Common sense will prevail. But I predict an almighty battle before we get there & there os nowhere to hide. This affects us all. #religion
My relationship with Allah is private, I don't need messy mullahs leaning in. Anyhows I got to tend to famalams/work so wishing everyone a wonderful sun-soaked weekend. Thank you to everyone who engaged & RTed. I appreciate it. Don't let hate & fear win. Be kind Have fun #onelove
