We are Muslims who live in the 21st century. We stand for a respectful, merciful and inclusive interpretation of Islam. We are in a battle for the soul of Islam, and an Islamic renewal must defeat the ideology of Islamism, or politicized Islam, which seeks to create Islamic states, as well as an Islamic caliphate. We seek to reclaim the progressive spirit with which Islam was born in the 7th century to fast forward it into the 21st century. We support the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which was adopted by United Nations member states in 1948.
We reject interpretations of Islam that call for any violence, social injustice and politicized Islam. Facing the threat of terrorism, intolerance, and social injustice in the name of Islam, we have reflected on how we can transform our communities based on three principles: peace, human rights and secular governance. We are announcing today the formation of an international initiative: the Muslim Reform Movement.
We have courageous reformers from around the world who will outline our Declaration for Muslim Reform, a living document that we will continue to enhance as our journey continues. We invite our fellow Muslims and neighbors to join us.
Hope springs eternal but reality says this well intentioned initiative will fail.
Islam calls for the death of Christians, Jews, Homosexuals, Apostates etc. etc. etc.
The Koran is immutable, attempts to change it earn you a death sentence.
That is Islam, at its core it is death cult.
“Good Muslims”, such as the folks behind this effort, are simply Muslims who aren’t very Muslim.
I personally see no value in attempting to reform a death cult.
But Good Luck folks.
