    The Battle for British Islam
    Panorama

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b050nj0z

    As France tries to come to terms with the deaths of the 12 people murdered in the Islamist attack at the office of Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris, Panorama investigates the battle for the hearts and minds of British Muslims. John Ware hears from Muslims facing an angry backlash for trying to promote a form of Islam which is in synch with British values. They believe that the way Islam has been practised here has more in common with extremist ideologies than some police officers, politicians or Muslim leaders have been prepared to admit.


    Need to get these voices out there and ALSO ex-Muslim voices!

    @gw_emily @BBCPanorama @CEMB_forum @BBCOne So called 'ex-Muslims' are only in the business of making money by ridiculing Muslims.

    The negative reaction to the documentary by Muslims on Twitter is very disheartening.

    Not just Payapa, unfortunately. I was looking at the panarama hashtag stream and hardly any tweets were supportive at the time.

    This is not current (2016?) but I found it an interesting documentary from Manchester on forced marriage and honour violence. We have no recognition of honour violence in the US so seeing how the methodology differs in police procedure was fascinating for me. I was treated much like this by law enforcement who understood my case but what I experienced is not standardized procedure. I wish we had this level of protection for our citizens and residents.

    I tried to start a new topic but the forum doesn't like me to do that..

    Any attempt to create a progressive, liberal and inclusive version of islam is completely wrongheaded. It's like building a disco in an internment camp and forcing people to dance.

    A social media network for young people that has been launched around the term “woke” is actually a covert British government counterterrorism programme, security officials have admitted.

    rather then funding facebook, activists, and fringe initiatives, the home office should pay target communities directly. A straightforward bribe would be more effective to make young muslims assimilate.

    I wonder if it is incompetence or indifference that leads to public money being spent on ineffective projects like these. Rather than controversial or underhand, it's just plain embarrassing.

    from the article:

    Quote from:
    BSBT (Building a Stronger Britain Together)  has awarded more than £9m to organisations since 2015. The Home Office said: “BSBT is an open and transparent programme, which supports local people in their vital work to bring communities together, promote fundamental values and tackle the spread of all extremist ideologies.


    it's a gravy train for pr and marketing agencies, ie a complete waste of money.

    talking of which,  a counterproductive attempt to define thought crimes and censor harmful speech.

    Quote from:
    Our research proposes that hateful extremism consists of a framework of behaviours, beliefs and harms. It stands in stark contrast to pluralism and Britain’s human rights, equality laws and norms.

    Our summary of hateful extremism is:
    • Behaviours that can incite and amplify hate, or engage in persistent hatred, or equivocate about and make the moral case for violence;
    • And that draw on hateful, hostile or supremacist beliefs directed at an out-group who are perceived as a threat to the wellbeing, survival or success of an in-group;
    • And that cause, or are likely to cause, harm to individuals, communities or wider society
