Dismay at Murder of Woman Who Wore Muslim Dress

19th June 2014 The Muslim Council of Britain is dismayed to learn that a Muslim woman has been stabbed to death in the early hours of Tuesday morning on the outskirts of Colchester. The 30-year-old woman, who was walking on the Salary Brook Trail in Essex, was said to be wearing a blue Abaya and a Hijab. There are reports that she was violently beaten and stabbed, and was pronounced dead on the scene after paramedics tried to resuscitate her. In its statement, Essex police have said: "We are conscious that the dress of the victim will have identified her as likely being a Muslim and this is one of the main lines of the investigation but again there is no firm evidence at this time that she was targeted because of her religion." Dr Shuja Shafi, Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain said: “It is absolutely shocking to hear of this horrific murder. ...

We Need Clarity and Consistency in our Education Standards

MCB Press Release: 'We Need Clarity and Consistency in ourEducation Standards: British Muslims Respond to the OfstedReports of schools in Birmingham' 9th June 2014. The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) today noted its serious concern at the conduct and outcome of the Ofsted investigation into state schools in Birmingham. The investigations were ordered by the Department for Education following the circulation of what is widely believed to be a fake dossier titled “Trojan Horse” outlining a plot of a 'Muslim takeover of schools'. These incendiary claims have not been proven, and there is widespread fear that the subsequent investigations have only deepened the problem, not resolved it at all. No extremism has been found, but the slur of extremism remains. Arbitrary Assessment Criteria Some of the schools investigated were only recently rated “outstanding” for their academic results and inclusivity. They have now been downgraded to “requiring special measures”, despite achieving improved results ...

Following Hamza’s conviction on 11 terrorism charges in the US last month the mosque in St Thomas’s Road received hate mail, one of several instances over the past few years. But this doesn’t worry Mohammed Kozbar, manager of the formerly named North London Central Mosque, who has helped transform a “hostile” environment for extremism into a thriving limb of the community.

I'm a Muslim & I give blood

Assalaamu ‘alaikum dear brothers and sisters, As Muslims living in the West, we have no option but to benefit our society. It isn't just about verbally professing the message of Islam but also about living Islam by helping our communities. The prophet Muhammad (sallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) was called ‘Al Ameen’ (The Trustworthy One) by his community because he built trust through benefiting the community in many different ways. All of the Messengers of Allah (‘alaihim assalaatu wassalaam) were individuals with established reputations before they were commissioned to invite to Allah. Given that Muslims have to contend with a billion-dollar Islamophobia industry headed up by certain politicians and sections of the media we, now more than ever, need to build trust within our society. One of the most powerful ways to this is by organising and helping out with various community services. In response to the recent killing in Woolwich, we want to encourage ...
