Positive anti-Islamisation moves

This focuses on the UK. In the absence of a survey, I'm extrapolating from personal wishes and those of moderate people I know.

We want to coexist peacefully with Muslims in our communities. And we want confidence that this is a lasting condition.

Another way of expressing this is:

We want Muslims to act on the basis that Islam is a hobby, deserving no rights or privileges or special considerations other than those available to other hobbies.

(These views are probably opposed by less moderate people on both "sides", many of whom want an aggressive, isolationist, policy).

Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain - Manifesto

This manifesto, quoted below, acts as a good model for religious communities in general, and UK Muslims in particular.

Taking the lead from the Central Council of Ex-Muslims in Germany, we demand:

  1. Universal rights and equal citizenship for all. We are opposed to cultural relativism and the tolerance of inhuman beliefs, discrimination and abuse in the name of respecting religion or culture.
  2. Freedom to criticise religion. Prohibition of restrictions on unconditional freedom of criticism and expression using so-called religious 'sanctities'.
  3. Freedom of religion and atheism.
  4. Separation of religion from the state and legal and educational system.
  5. Prohibition of religious customs, rules, ceremonies or activities that are incompatible with or infringe people's rights and freedoms.
  6. Abolition of all restrictive and repressive cultural and religious customs which hinder and contradict woman's independence, free will and equality. Prohibition of segregation of sexes.
  7. Prohibition of interference by any authority, family members or relatives, or official authorities in the private lives of women and men and their personal, emotional and sexual relationships and sexuality.
  8. Protection of children from manipulation and abuse by religion and religious institutions.
  9. Prohibition of any kind of financial, material or moral support by the state or state institutions to religion and religious activities and institutions.
  10. Prohibition of all forms of religious intimidation and threats.

British Muslims for Secular Democracy - Aims

This organisation identifies two aims, one good and one not so good:

Raise awareness within British Muslims and the wider public, of democracy particularly 'secular democracy' helping to contribute to a shared vision of citizenship (the separation of faith and state, so faiths exert no undue influence on policies and there is a shared public space).

The above is a very good aim, much needed by Christians and others as well as Muslims.

Encourage religious understanding and harmony, respect for different systems of beliefs, and encourage an understanding and celebration of the variety of Muslim cultures, values and traditions which are present in British society.

The not-so-good part is "... respect for different systems of beliefs ...". Islam itself is toxic, and doesn't deserve respect. Neither do the supernatural and/or divisive aspects of any religion.
