This group has been established to:

  • increase awareness of the teachings of Islam,
  • challenge misinformation about Islam, especially by public authorities and the media, and
  • analyse the influence of Islam on contemporary UK society.

Despite Islam, in one manifestation or another, dominating the news for over forty years, most non-Muslims would still struggle to provide an accurate quote from the Qur’an or to summarise the life of Mohammed. Serious evaluation of the obviously important influence of Islamic doctrine upon current affairs is almost completely absent from the discussion of them by politicians, journalists and academics in the mainstream media, with non-professional comment being increasingly censored from social media.

Proponents and opponents of Islam all too often project well-rehearsed but limited arguments from entrenched positions, with little meaningful exchange of ideas, and with reasonable concerns by the latter all too often dismissed out of hand as ‘hate speech‘ and ‘Islamophobia‘.

One of the purposes of this site is to encourage a better informed and more fruitful discussion about the nature of Islam and the issues that the growth in its numbers and influence of inevitably raise.
