|Dear Sir / Madam
I felt compelled to write to you after reading an article on the BBC
website today regarding various polls that have been done within the
The article stated 2 things in particular:
1, Commonly Muslims do not believe Al Queda is responsible for September
2, "A poll carried out for the BBC found that the majority of Muslims in
Britain believe the war on terror is a thinly veiled war on Islam".
Please I wonder if the Muslim community in the UK that participated in
these poles and formed these opinions, has ever been outside of the UK, or
watches the BBC news?
Personally I travel a lot, I no longer live in the UK, and have always
found the BBC news to be the most accurate of all and always comes across
I consider myself open minded and an equal to all races and religions. But
find it very hard to believe how or why a Muslim community in the UK or
any where in the world would believe Al Queada were not responsible, and
This led me to your website which on the surface of things seems more in
touch with reality so far. But I must add I've only given it a cursory
If we want everyone to live together in the UK in harmony, respecting one
another, the respect has to be in both directions.
The 2nd point from above, left me equally in dismay. There is a war on
TERRORISM, the people that take part in TERRORIST acts are TERRORISTS. Now
if they are male, female, black, white, Christian, Hindu, Muslim etc they
are still TERRORISTS. There is a war on TERRORISM not Islam. Some of the
Terrorists may be fighting against the US in the name of Islam, and I
would imagine you would find this equally offensive, for which I would
I guess what I'm trying to say is please do not add to the propaganda war.
You are in a responsible position in the UK and I imagine educated to know
better on these subjects. Please educate the community, and ask them to
put trust in the UK government and society. We have something special in
the UK lets keep it that way!
From my travels around the world, I believe that the UK is probably one
of the most liberated countries in the world. Please make efforts in the
Muslim community to re-address the balance and ensure the community gets
the big picture!
Britain is a beautiful liberated country, I would like to think it will
still be like that when I return one day.
Thanks for your time. Any comments will be entertained with an open mind.
