Discussion by: skeptatheosWhat more do you feel can be done to bring – and encourage/defend – secularism, free-thinking, and rationalism to the Middle East & North Africa?
I would like to cast a light on Maryam Namazie, and her call for secularism in the Middle East & Northern Africa;
These are amongst the hardest suffering regions of the globe, damaged by ignorance that even some theists in the UK would find unacceptable.
If you’re aware of causes, or people out within these regions that are sticking their heads above the parapet that are trying to make this happen, I – and no doubt others – would be very interested to read about it, as so far if they exist; it seems thin on the ground, most likely due to the dangers involved.
I understand that for a such a cause to exist within these areas is incredibly dangerous, that is why I ask; What can be done?
Thank you for your time,
