  1. You talk about intolerance.Is not Islam intolerant to
    – Apostates
    – Women’s rights
    -Homosexuals and Transgender
    -Pre-stunning of animals for slaughter

    These are all issues which have rightly been the subject of debate and change in the world. Can you not understand that people are disturbed by intransigence and dogmatism?
    Can you say clearly and loudly
    ‘If you are a suicide bomber you will not go to Paradise and receive 72 virgins’ if so, say so.

  2. Yet another show which is furthering the agenda of islamophobia, we need to stop whining and look inward, as a muslim frankly the current popular scriptural interpretation teaches hatred for other faiths and populist belief that entire world has to to convert adds fuel to fire, so it amazes me when in such discussions muslims are held as victims only.
    We are enough repressed , please take us forward and not foster these conspiracy theories.
    In how many muslim countries could u hold such a show or even discuss issues like this.
    Yes muslims are looked at with suspicion- even I as a muslim have a tinge of fear when i see a bearded young man next to me (who knows i think) .We have far greater issues than islam bashing, we need serious reform and a huge movement stemming from inside to take us away from our current state both individually and a larger muslim ummah level.
    A very disappointing agenda Mr Ramadan

  3. God has created diverse human beings to live in this tiny global village of one family. Creation by its very nature is diverse with different species, different communities, different cultures and languages. These differences represent the beauty and wonder but diversity is sometimes not fully appreciated, resulting in all sorts of clashes. The British society and Establishment must learn to respect and accommodate others, as if in a family.

    To all the haters in this world, if you want to know more about Islam read about Prophet Mohammad peace be upon Him and his household. Don’t depend everything on what you hear from people and especially media, because nothing’s easier than spreading out rumours. Yes I am a Muslim lady, but I have Christians friends, Jewish friends, Buddhist friends.. so we’re not anti-social and bullies… and Thank God we respect everyone because that’s what the Holy Quran tells us to do 🙂 Here’s the story Mohammad PBUH is just a messenger not an inventor. Allah almighty sent Mohammad to make him introduce Islam to the people. Don’t insult Islam, normal Muslims like me don’t sit & talk to insult the other religions or the other people. This is wrong! Islam respects the other religions or EVEN people who don’t believe in anything.

    Before accusing all Muslims as terrorists, make sure you civilize yourself with true facts. Do not depend on media and rumours… You are all blinded with stereotypes.. so in other words, you are all ignorant ! Thank God our religion taught us how to respect peoples religion and opinions. Whatever you say reflects who you follow.. so thanks for proving us right 🙂

    Do you guys have ever read the history of Ustmaniyah Kingdom in turkey before the WW1? if u guys see the real history of Ustmaniyah kingdom, you will agree with all of his points. cuz the in that kingdom, they are not only Muslims, but also Christians and Jews and they were living in peace. UNTIL the world sees it as a threat to the world (bcuz of course they could getting bigger and bigger) they interrupted them and mixed them with politics. just saying though. if u r not convinced, read history

    ISLAM and Quran is against terrorist. Prophet Muhammad was driven from his city and moved to another city while being chased by non Muslims who hated him for preaching his religion, when he came to settle in another city, the enemies wanted to invade and kill him, that’s the only reason why him and his army fought, to protect themselves

    Spousal abuse is not just a Muslim issue, you know how many of your fellow white, non Muslim British men assault and abuse their wives? With their drinking levels it happens at an astonishingly high rate. Does it concern you?
    London School of Islamics Trust

    1. Yes of course it concerns me. It’s a criminal offense.
      But take a look at:
      Qur’an (4:34)
      Qur’an (38:44)
      and from the Hadith
      Bukhari (72:715), and many other examples
      It seems that Islam permits Muslim men to beat their wives should they feel it necessary

      I do not accuse all Muslims of being terrorists, of course I don’t. But it is not surprising if you get tarred with the same brush if you do not speak out loudly and clearly against those who bring your religion into disrepute .Your high profile spokespersons have a particular responsibility to do this but time again what is said is just defensiveness and a demand for tolerance.
