Organizations like British Muslims for Secular Democracy give me hope for a better future. The West needs to realize that the best weapon in the war against radical Islam is moderate Islam.

The goals of BMSD are as follows:
•to get Muslims properly engaged in the democratic process;
•to counter the prevalent negative stereotype of Muslims;
•to break the destructive stranglehold which the lunatics (helped by some in the media) seem to have on the image, identity and psyche of the Muslim communities;
•to ensure that theology does not stifle education and democracy;
•to ensure that no individual, group or gender has any theological or regressive cultural values imposed upon them.
