The video below is 51 minutes long. I recommend watching it in full as it covers some important ground. I have not attempted to summarise the other contributions, but have itemised below the times where I speak.
At 1:57 I introduce myself and explain what I do.
At 12:39 I discuss the reasons for the widespread criticism of the Government's Prevent programme, and suggest what the Government should be doing to increase confidence in Prevent.
At 21:20 I explain why I believe the UK should remain a member of the European Convention on Human Rights, particularly because the UK does not have a written constitution. I also point out that some of the worst human rights abuses involve people having their freedom restricted by others within their own community.
At 24:42 I explain that my human rights as a Muslim are not infringed if a Protestant pastor chooses to "slag off" Islam, and that there is no right to not be offended.
At 37:35 I mention the Northern Ireland Ashers Bakery case which is expected to go to the UK Supreme Court. My view was that the Equality Act 2010 is defective when it comes to protecting freedom of religious belief.
At 45:45 I recommend that, assuming such a provision does not already exist, UK law should borrow from the USA and introduce the requirement for employers to "make reasonable accommodation" for the religious beliefs of their employees.
