Muslim feminist plans to open liberal mosque in Britain

A Muslim feminist who founded a liberal mosque in Berlin, triggering death threats and fatwas, is planning to open an inclusive place of worship in the UK, saying a revolution in Islam is under way.

Seyran Ateş, a Turkish-born lawyer and human rights campaigner, visited London this week to investigate potential sites for a liberal mosque open to men, women and LGBT Muslims on an equal basis, and people from all strands of Islam.

She hopes to establish such a mosque within a year, and says her aim is to create similar places of worship in every European capital.

    You go girl, Surrounded by security all picked up by the taxpayer. There is no moderate islam therefore there are no moderate muslims. It’s like referring to someone as a moderate Nazis. It’s bullshit. There are those willing to play the long game. The end result is the same. That is your “moderate”.

    Good luck with that. In 2 weeks you will be screaming for another holocaust.

      And blaming the violence on islamophobia, even if the violence is done by muslims enforcing Shari’a law.

  • Watchman

    Fake News: “We will call them Places of Worship, but I have heard that the more traditional muslims will call them Free Fire Zones.”

    How about she go open these mosques in one of the many muslim countries. No more mosques here please and no more Islam.

    A Liberal mosque is one that only preaches beheading every other day instead of daily.

    The Danger in Islamic Prayer

    A deep hatred and rejection of Judaism and Christianity are hardwired into Islamic doctrine, including the Koran. Many of its chapters are incorporated into mandatory daily Islamic prayer. The very first Koranic chapter, considered the most exalted of all chapters, is a prayer directed to Allah asking him to keep Muslims away from the misguided path of Jews and Christians. This chapter is a necessary part of the five mandatory daily prayers, and is recited not once, but anywhere from 17 to 100 times a day by devout Muslims (or in a broader sense, 6200 to 36,500 times a year).
