British Muslims for Secular Democracy

British Muslims for Secular Democracy aims to raise awareness within British Muslims and the wider public, of democracy, particularly ‘secular democracy,’ helping to contribute to a shared vision of citizenship. BMSD aims to 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 organisation also raises awareness of religious influence on UK domestic and foreign policies, particularly those which may lead to an undue effect on civil liberties, addresses Islamophobia and works with UK and global Muslim and other organisations, opposing radicalism and intolerant beliefs. We aim to ensure that politicians and community leaders encourage and practise transparency, and ensure legitimate voting practices are followed.
