14th September 2014The Muslim Association of Britain condemns the beheading of British Journalist David Haines
The Muslim Association of Britain (MAB) condemns in the strongest terms the beheading of the British journalist David Haines by ISIS in northern Iraq.
This act falls nothing short of being heinous and atrocious; and is condemned unreservedly.
The killing of any civilian should NOT be tolerated and is thence condemned.
MABbelieves more needs to be done in moving to a peaceful resolution of the various armed conflicts in that region. Security, democracy and legitimate governance have to be re-established as a matter of urgency, without the further cost of more civilian casualties.
Dr Omer El-Hamdoon said, “Our condolences and thoughts go out to the family of Mr Haines, at this difficult time.”

In this joint statement, leading Islamic centres condemn the inexcusable actions of the group calling itself “Islamic State” (IS), and the indefensible murders of James Foley and Steven Sotloff. We hope that any other hostages who may be held by IS will be released unharmed.
It is deceitful for the group to refer to itself as the “Islamic State”; its actions are far from the teachings of Islam. IS resorts to violence against the innocent, and kills indiscriminately.
The Middle East is witnessing violence and crimes committed against the innocent, the result of which hundreds of thousends have died, and millions displaced and homeless. Armed sectarianism is only fighting injustice with greater injustice.
We urge our youth not to contemplate going to Iraq or Syria to join IS or any similar groups that spread violence and hatred, nor to give them any kind of support whatsoever.
We call on all mosques and Islamic centres ...

The Muslim Council of Britain once again condemned the actions of the so called "Islamic State in Syria and the Levant", ISIS. Today we express once again our rebuke of this reprehensible organisation. We are horrified at the abhorrent murder of James Foley, a reporter who initially went to the region to expose the human rights abuses of the Syrian regime. ISIS has murdered this man for no reason at all.
Each day ISIS seeks to carry out an act more barbarous than the day before, craving the oxygen of publicity to give credibility to their heinous acts. We condemn unreservedly their psychopathic violence, whether it is on minorities, on civilians, or on fellow Muslims.
The MCB expressed the British Muslim community's common censure of the group as early as June, and called for joint action to ensure the poison of extremism and sectarianism is not injected into our ...

Three hundred people protested outside a north London HSBC branch, according to the Islington Gazette; the protesters claim the bank has given them no reason for closing the mosque's bank account
Worshippers from Finsbury Park Mosque have staged a demonstration outside their local branch of HSBC in London to protest against the bank’s decision to close the charity’s bank account.
According to the Islington Gazette newspaper, about 300 people participated in the protest, which took place on Friday outside the HSBC branch on Seven Sisters Road in north London.
Khalid Oumar, a trustee of the mosque, said the protest was held because HSBC had not given the charity any reasons for its decision to send a letter saying the mosque’s account would be closed – except for saying that its activities now fell outside the bank’s "risk appetite".
"It is important that Londoners and the whole country are informed ...
