Dear Brother sister,|
I would like to raise a few points in response to the circulation of the letter and interviews given to the media by MCB representatives.
Firstly i would like to give the bare facts re the so called threat of Terrorism in the UK.
So far over 500 people have been arressted, only 5% have been charged and only 2 people having been convicted (the 2 convictions were drug related and had nothing to do with Terrorism.
However, the interviews given by brothet Iqbal Sacranie and Inayat Banglawala seem to give the impression that the few people arrested have already been found gulity. The interviews were apologetic in nature and very defensive. Both failed to mention that not one british Muslim hads been covicted and Dozens are being held without trail or due process. And 23 other Muslim Nationals are being held in Belmarsh without tial (the UK own Guantanomo Bay.
It seems quite clear that Tony Balir and his establisment are hyping this to create Public opinion to Attact other Nations. Without creating fear in the Uk, The UK and the USA could never gain the public opinion needed to create Terror in Muslim Land and pillafge their resources.
One cannot condone any one who may even be thinking of targeting innocent civilians never mind caryying out attacks.
Your letter states that the Imamsand Mosque Chaipersns are doing exellent work, this clearly contrary to reality. Most Imams are ill equiped do deal with the reality and the Mosque commiteees are only interested in power politics. Having lived in various Towns i can state fron personal experience the divisions which exist along trible and nationalistic lines (this has nothing to do with Islam).
Lastly your choice of communication via the media leves a great deal to be desired. You could have published the privately without telling the media that this has been done. whilst Tony Blair applauding your communcae suggets that your agenda is set not by your organisation but by The UK government. You have said very little againts the sppeches given by polticians including Tony who intheir minds ahve alraedy found Muslims and Islam Gulity.
