Yasmin Alibhai-Brown is a trustee of bmsd, a weekly columnist on the Independent and London Evening Standard, author of several books and a broadcaster. She has worked for two think tanks as a senior fellow- the IPPR and Foreign Policy Centre where she researched on and published seminal reports on racial attitudes, multiculturalism and Britishness.

  • Ms Alibhai-Brown has written ten newspaper columns on modernism, human rights and Islam and highlighted the aims of bmsd.
  • She has appeared on eighteen TV programmes on similar themes
  • She spoke at several national events and delivered lectures on various themes, including the need for progressive Muslim engagement. Among them were lectures at Imperial College London, Middlesex University, Goldsmiths, University of Sheffield, University of the East of England, Nottingham University, Lincoln University, Keele and others.
  • She represented bmsd at nineteen conferences on citizenship, social cohesion, liberty and civil rights. These took place in Birmingham, Coventry, London and Warwick
  • She spoke at the fringe meetings of all three political party conferences.
  • She was invited to address the Conservative Muslim Forum, to participate in a Question Time evening for young professionals organised by Nick Clegg and Muslims in the media, conferences organised by Liberty and the Convention for Modern Liberties, the annual conference of the LGA and annual meetings organised by educators.
  • She has been actively engaging with government initiatives on social cohesion, the rights of Muslim women and children and with local authorities trying to put into place policies to foster commonalities.
  • Together with other likeminded Muslims she has had working dinner/discussions with Muslims working in the City, law and the media.
  • She has had a number of private meetings on the work of bmsd with politicians of all parties and in both Houses and also civil servants. She has been very critical of government foreign policies in the Middle East and argued for equal treatment for Muslims. She has also put to politicians the bmsd position of faith and the state, faith based schools and defensive ‘community’ politics.
  • She has spoken on bmsd in Vancouver, Prague, British Council meetings in European capitals and Scotland.
  • She manages the staff at bmsd and goes to the office to oversee the work.
  • She has developed and runs democracy and civil rights workshops in Tower Hamlets in partnership with Praxis, an organisation which works with incomers. Dr Ghayassudin Siddique has worked on these sessions with the Chair.

She has edited an advisory booklet for teachers who need guidance on how to address the concerns of and demands made by Muslim parents. Guidance provided by the Muslim Council of Britain, is, in the view of bmsd, not in the best interests of British Muslim children as it seeks separate treatment and does not encourage integration or full participation in the life of a school. The booklet was written by Dr Taj Hargey and Dr Ghayassudin Siddique with assistance from Nasreen Akhtar, our erstwhile admin director.
