British Muslims for Secular Democracy is a group led by trustees including Independent columnist Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, which is working to highlight injustices that take place within Muslim communities, as well as those that are committed against Muslims.

British Muslims for Secular Democracy director Tehmina Kazi explained that the body is looking to communicate its aims and activities to a wider audience.

‘The brief is to increase exposure in the national press, particularly outlets that have not featured our work before, such as The Telegraph and The Times,’ said Kazi. ‘We also have a strong positive message in terms of promoting civic engagement among Muslims.’  

The group has in the past spoken out about reports that radical group Islam4UK is launching a campaign to advance the implementation of Sharia law in the UK.
