We are a global coalition founded by Muslims, ex-Muslims, academics, scholars, authors, and activists who stand for peace, democracy, liberty, and secular governance and who are deeply concerned by the continuing threat posed to these values by the actions and demands of Islamists in various places around the world.

We embrace democratic values founded in reason and critical debate and the fundamental freedoms set forth in the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948.

We support liberty and dignity for all persons, including women and girls, and whether or not one is Muslim.

We believe that, without fear of apostasy and blasphemy laws, every individual has the right to speak freely, engage in critical thinking, publicly express criticism of Islam, and has the right to freedom of religion or to have no religion.

Because we value peace and democracy, we reject the acceptance of and justifications for jihad, the use of dawa for political purposes, and advocacy for the institutionalization of sharia.

 We invite all like-minded people to join in supporting these core principles.


War in Israel
October 11, 2023

The CLARITy Coalition unequivocally condemns the terrorist atrocities perpetrated by Hamas. Such inhumanity is repugnant, whatever one’s views are on the longstanding conflict in the region.

The indiscriminate attacks on innocent Israeli women, children, and the elderly have resulted in hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries. Israel is left with no choice but to defend its people from Hamas terrorists. Unfortunately, this has meant the loss of lives in Gaza as well. Hamas has not only failed to protect the people of Gaza, they are the reason why Gazans will suffer.

 Our hearts go out to the innocent Israelis and Palestinians caught in this war.

CLARITy Coalition Statement re: Denmark and Sweden to ban protests involving Quran burnings
August 11, 2023

The Clarity Coalition  is appalled by the recent decision by Western states to capitulate to the pressures of Islamists. We view the announcements by Denmark and Sweden to ban protests involving Quran burnings as a defeat for global free speech. Such a decision sets a troubling precedent and betrays the freedoms these nations once proudly claimed to uphold.

Free speech was founded on religious freedom – the right of Martin Luther and others to  protest Catholicism. Now, hundreds of years later, some of Europe’s  most liberal countries have decided to police speech and expression on behalf of religion. Moreover, they are doing it on behalf of only one religion, Islam, as they once did for only Christianity. This is a tragic erosion of hard won freedom and rights.

The CLARITy Coalition, a global alliance of Muslim and non-Muslim scholars and activists committed to liberty and secularism, stands opposed to the California Assembly’s introduction of House Resolution 52 (HR 52), honoring Muslim American Appreciation and Awareness Month.” Instead of promoting California’s diverse Muslim community and its many achievements, the resolution legitimizes Sunni Islamists and ignores the contributions of secular and reformist Muslim Americans.

CLARITy Coalition Statement on appointment of Islamophobia officer by Canadian government
February 10, 2023

The CLARITy coalition stands for liberty and secularism in the face of Islamists. As such, we are vehemently opposed to the federal government of Canada offering an 85-million-dollar budget to an Islamophobia officer. 

We are against the establishment of the office, in general, as it offers exclusive protection from criticism to one religion. This is a dangerous precedent to set aligning Canada’s federal government with theocracies such as Iran or Afghanistan. The title of this position says all anyone needs to know about how anti-freedom this contrived position is. While bigotry against Muslims certainly exists, the term ‘Islamophobia’ is a term created by Islamist theocrats to stifle legitimate criticism of various interpretations of Islam. It is beyond belief that the Canadian government carve out a protected position made solely for those theocrats handing them a platform to suppress ‘blasphemy ‘as they do across Muslim majority nations from Pakistan to Iran to Saudi Arabia.

October 25, 2022

We wish to express our solidarity with the brave protestors who have risen up against the theocratic regime of the Islamic Republic. The brutal death of Mahsa Amini has inspired and emboldened her fellow Iranians, both in Iran and in the diaspora, to resist oppression and demand freedom.

We are sure that, like us, you are still processing the shock and horror at the news of the attack on Salman Rushdie at the Chautauqua Institution, New York.
