The seminar aims to bring together campaigners, lawyers, and experts to discuss ways in which Sharia courts can be prohibited in Britain. It will make recommendations and lay out the legislative and legal avenues available to help bring about equal rights for all. Speakers at the event include: Yasmin Alibhai-Brown (British Muslims for Secular Democracy); Yassi Atasheen (Lawyer); Rony Miah (Lawyers’ Secular Society); Maryam Namazie (One Law for All); Pragna Patel (Southall Black Sisters); and Yasmin Rahman (Women Against Fundamentalism).
