A prominent group of ex-Muslims are facing calls to be banned from future Pride marches in London after a mosque complained about their criticisms of Islam.
Activists affiliated to the Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain (CEMB) took part in the march on Saturday 8 July. Their signs bore slogans such as “Allah is gay,” “Throw ISIS off the roof” and “Islamophobia is an oxymoron”.
Some listed the 13 countries – all under Islamic rule – where homosexuality is punishable by death. One sign said “Fuck Islamic homophobia,” with “Fuck Islam” in a different colour to the rest of the letters.
One banner specifically accused East London Mosque of inciting the murder of LGBT people. The mosque responded by complaining to the event’s organisers, who are now considering banning CEMB from future marches.
“We’ve raised a complaint with the co-chairs of the event that the group was inciting hatred against Muslims,” said Salman Farsi, a spokesman for the mosque. He added that the banners had attacked “our good name, based on absolutely groundless reasons”.
