The case of Shabina Begum makes Islam look barbaric and non-Muslims hate Muslims. They would of course also resent it wasted at least £100,000 in legal costs to taxpayers. Your organisation should have tried to stop her from taking this silly step but you did not. It implies that you were in favour of her action. Whereas Islamic countries like Saudi Arabia does not allow the building of any religious institution like a church or temple to be built there, Muslims in western and non-Islamic countries always demand mosques and separate state-funded Muslim schools to be built there. Is it fair?
In the Koran there are many verses where Muslims are urged to kill non-Muslims. These passages should be removed from it, otherwise Islam will be regarded as a barbaric religion and even I would agree with that view.
