An Atheist and a Muslim in Conversation: Overcoming Differences, Challenging Fundamentalism and Promoting Secular Values

A conversation between Boyd Sleator (Atheist Northern Ireland) and Tehmina Kazi (British Muslims for Secular Democracy).
Progressive Muslims and atheists differ on key issues such as the existence of God, and the likelihood of an afterlife. Yet there is much we have in common: from promoting secular democracy and human rights, to opposing faith-based discrimination. In recent years, atheist and Muslim campaigners have worked together to oppose the normalisation of gender segregation in public universities, campaigned against exclusionary policies in faith schools, and promoted greater acceptance of same-sex relations in faith communities. What are the barriers to achieving progress, and how can we build on our successes?
