SHAFAQNA – According to western morning news Muslim voters are being urged to press General Election candidates to commit to combating Islamophobia and rebuilding trust with communities when tackling terrorism. The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) – an umbrella body representing a wide range of Muslim organisations – has drawn up a list of key commitments which they suggest Muslim voters may wish seek from would-be MPs. They include “meaningful action” to combat Islamophobia, anti-Semitism and all forms of racism, upholding civil liberties when tackling terrorism and crime, and developing an “inclusive” national curriculum which fully reflects Britain’s diversity. It also suggests that Muslim voters should press for the “binding recognition” of Palestine as an independent state while accusing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of “racism”.
