Muslim Council of Britain rejects agenda of hatred and division PDF Print E-mail
LONDON, July 7 (APP)- The UK largest Muslim organisation-The Muslim Council of Britain- on the occasion of the fifth anniversary of London bombings on Wednesday rejected agenda of hatred and division and said the community must remain vigilant and steadfast against those who commit such acts in the name of Islam and pervert faith for their own ends.

The Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain Farooq Murad led a delegation of British Muslims to pay their respects at the 7/7 Memorial site in Hyde Park, erected to remember the victims of the atrocity.
In a statement, he said in schools, mosques and community centres they are offering a counter-narrative to those in the mainstream who are determined to cast Islam’s relationship with the West as always destructive and always antagonistic.
“ We are forging bonds with other faith and civil society groups, and need to seek partnership with local and national government in order to raise the level of the debate on the complex issues facing Muslims in the UK.”
Murad said some have tried to paint 7/7 in terms of a war between Muslims and wider community, but two of the bombings, at Edgware Road and Aldgate, took place in areas with large Muslim populations.
“This was not an attack by one community on another; this was an attack on the very concept of an open pluralistic society and all those- Muslim and non-Muslim alike - who wish to be part of it.  Among the 52 killed there were four promising young Muslims who came from diverse backgrounds.”
Pointing towards a grave and unfortunate fallout from this tragic event, he said this  is highlighted by the recent surveys which have shown that despite British Muslims having a high affinity with this country, fellow Britons associate Islam and Muslims with terrorism.
“Sadly, the responses of some policy-makers and commentators have made matters worse by refusing to see Muslims as anything other than a security issue, or worse still, using the understandable suspicion that followed 7/7 as a vehicle for overt xenophobia.
“The Prevent and Contest strategies, draconian anti-terror legislation and increasingly polarised debates about the headscarf and other practices have fostered an atmosphere where Muslims and Muslim issues are seen as separate from the rest of society.”
The MCB Secretary-General said those who died on July 7 2005 represented every aspect of British  society, rich and poor, black and white, people of all faiths and none and  underscored the need to combat extremism on all sides.
