Press Release

December 5, 2012
If one thinks for one minute that apostasy deserves the death penalty in the eyes of fundamentalists, one can evaluate the risks these people are taking, for the sake of clarifying concepts and standing for their right not to have a faith label imposed on them on the ground of origins. Not only does it breach the taboo of apostasy in Islam, but paradoxically, by its very name, it forces European people not to brand them ‘Muslims’.

Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain and One Law for All are calling on everyone to join the Day of Agreement. It’s quite easy to do. On 10 October, upload the day’s logo as your avatar on social media, Tweet #dayofagreement or try it with your colleagues, family and friends. You can also join our five minute flash-mob at 12 noon in central London. (Email for more details). Just remember, you can’t disagree with anyone - your colleagues, spouse, lover(s), mates, neighbours, children, bosses, or even politicians... You are not allowed to dissent, ‘offend’ or question. And before anyone gets too excited, they have to remember that they must also agree with everything you say. It's only fair...

The Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain would like to make public its support for Tom Holland’s Channel 4 documentary 'Islam: The Untold Story'. We are indignant to learn that due to threats made on Holland, Channel 4 has cancelled a repeat screening of the historical inquiry into the origins of Islam similar to the kind of inquiry that has been applied to other religions and histories in Britain for many years. The CEMB urges the public to view the documentary, Islam: the Untold Story, and write to Channel 4 and Ofcom calling for a repeat screening.
