As the excitement mounts for the @ContrarianPrize debate on Wednesday evening, here is my article in City AM https://t.co/t99LgK9asH #cprize— Ali Miraj (@AliMirajUK) November 28, 2016
Introduction of new ideas into the public realm and an impact on the public debate
She believes a one-party theocracy governed under the principles of http://thevoiceofreason-ann.blogspot.co.uk/2014/05/secular-koranism.html would cure the British malaise caused by decades of degenerate feminism and over 100 years of bad foreign and domestic policy. (For the avoidance of doubt, the imposition of Secular Koranism does not mean the end of freedom of worship. Synagogues, churches, mosques and temples would stay open and continue to compete with each other to attract adherents. Only the law of the land - which everyone has to obey - would be different.)
Independence of thought and judgement
She is guided only by truth, logic and morality with an almost godlike capacity for impartial analysis, speaking without fear or favour.
Courage and conviction in his/her actions
She has been saying the same thing for about a decade and has not wavered in her message because she knows she is right.
Sacrifice by putting principle above personal advancement
Friendships have been sacrificed as well as membership of a number of political parties who do not see the point of defending free speech. She was once told by Hugh Muir of The Guardian that she could be working for the BBC if only she would renounce her views, but this she steadfastly refuses to do.
