The Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain (CEMB) will present its first all day
international conference on Political Islam, Sharia Law, and Civil Society
on Friday 10 October 2008. Since apostasy is punishable by death under
Islamic law, the conference coincides with the International Day against the
Death Penalty.

Maryam Namazie, Spokesperson for the Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain, will
focus on Apostasy; Sharia Law; and Creationism, Faith Schools and Religious
Education. Dawkins will also present his criticism of Harun Yahya’s Atlas of
Creation, for which Dawkins’ site has been banned in Turkey. Other
distinguished speakers at the conference are Mina Ahadi, Roy Brown, Giles
Enders, Johann Hari, Ehsan Jami, Houzan Mahmoud, Caspar Melville, Taslima
Nasreen, Fariborz Pooya, Terry Sanderson, Joan Smith, Bahram Soroush, Hanne
