Emails to the MCB on issues and concerns
I would like to propose that your organisation arrange an international [Condemnation of Terrorism Day],so that Muslims the world over can voice there dissaproval.|
I believe that such an event would be good for the image of Islam,good for community relations and bad for the terrorist who, would have us believe, they are representing Islam.
As a white non relgious male. I believe very strongly in humanity and also feel that the strongest weapon we have against the present atrocities is Islam itself the world over.
|I was very impressed by the prompt action taken by Dr Daud Abdullah and
Dr Musharraf Hussain in trying to avert the tragedy. Despite the tragic
outcome, I hope this will bring everyone closer together.
I am writing to thank you so much for all that you did to try to bring
about the release of Ken Bigly in recent weeks. I am a committed
Christian, and was humbled by the way your representatives went out of
their way - possibly at risk to themselves, to try to negotiate on
behalf of Mr Bigly.
There is so much tragedy and darkness in our world, but such actions as
you took bring light and hope. I am constantly praying for peace to come
to the people of Iraq, and shed tears for the thousands of Iraquis who
have lost life, loved ones and their homes because of this war.
As people of faith, we must do all that we can to stand for what is just
and good, and to work together towards peace, love and common
understanding. Let us never give up working towards this.
God bless you all,
|I am a teacher who has taught in multicultural schools. I always strive
to portray a positive image of Islam and the countries faiths. I am
concerned that muslims are opting out of religious education and
therefore are not learning about faiths in this country. If we are to
educate to understand Islam, surely Islam needs to be educated about
other faiths in order to dispel misunderstandings and prejudices in this
country. There is a misunderstanding about what Religious education
entails, it is NOT indoctrinating but educating.
as a young muslim growing up in this country i'm sick of the so called 'muslim'
extremists killing inocent civilians and i commend the mcb in condemnnig these. But
why should the mcb and other muslim organisations have too come out time and tmie
after again to condemn these attacks. These have nothing to do with the muslim
poppulation the same way nazi germany had nothing to do with the german people. as
for what i think of the mcb, i think your organisation pays lip service to the uk
government and i can confirm to you today that the majority of people that i know at my
universitry follow similar views. what have you done for the muslim people over the last
years. The problem with peoples view on islam in this country is that they are stuck
between extremes, one of the hypocritical 'hooky' Abu Hamza and the other being so
called muslim representatives like the mcb. we need real sheiks and scolars to provide
this country with information on islam. One example is sheikh Shoaib Jussain of masjid
al taweed, who is a very knowledgeable man. What do u think of my views and could
you explain your role and purpose in this society.
I know this probably isn't the right place to send this but it was the only
e-mail adress I could find.
I saw a spokesman for your organisation speaking on Sky News yesterday
(can't recall the name) about the current situation in Fallujah.
I thought he was spot on in his assessment of the situation and didn't get
sucked into discussing the 'official spin' that the Sky anchor was so keen
to put on the situation.
I'm not a muslim but I think it's important that groups such as yourselves
continue to put forward the truthful alternative to the official line.
Good luck with your work in the future.
Yours, etc, etc,
I am an Iraqi-British muslim who is horrified by what is happening in Iraq where my brothers and sisters live. I am also deeply disappointed by your press release about the Fallouja issue.
I want to tell you that you certainly do not represent me as a British Muslim at all. You are blinded by your sectarian belief and onesidedeness to the issue of Fallouja.
I now have to explain to you the background to the Fallouja problem which unfortnately you don't understand. The whole problem is due to the evil regime of Saddam Hussein ....
We have not heard MCB saying a word of sympathy against genocide and mass graves to your fellow muslims (if you believe they are muslims) at all. All you have done is to play in Saddam's hands when he was using the sanctions issue to score political goals with the US. Saddam manipulated the ignorant Arabs and Muslims to his cause without realising they were harming millions of inocent Iraqis.
Fallouja has become a safe haven for Saddam's loyalists and Zarqawi's group who terrorise the Iraqi people in the name of Islam. Islam is far removed from terrorism and hell is the place for all those terrorists who blew themselves up in Najaf, Kadhimiyah and Baghdad with relegious fatwa from the terrorist "imams" in Fallouja and Saudi Arabia.
Fallouja has become Talaban State within Iraq where beating and beheading takes place without any pity and where the suicide bombers roam the streets of Iraqi cities looking for maximum civilian casulaitites. Do you call blowing up oil pipes resistance??
Do you call bombing Yarmouk Hospital resistance?
Do you call bombing muslim visitors to Najaf and kerbala reistance?
If you say yes to the above then you are not a muslim at all....
