Emails to the MCB on issues and concerns
|Dear Sir. When September 11th happened I emailed you saying I do not
blame ordinary law abiding Muslims for what happened and that I and millions
of British people wanted to live in peace with our Muslim Countrymen and
women. I find myself once again emailing you and expressing a simular
opinion. As I am sure over 99% of you will be appalled at what happened I
would like to see the masses of Muslims bussed or trained into London for an
organised Raleigh to show enmass that you are digested and hate the people
who besmirch your religion and also showing that you are with your fellow
countrymen in the anger you feel towards the perpetrators of such heinous
crime against all of mankind.|
I would also like you to answer me one question. In the Catholic religion
a person who commits certain crimes when ordered by the Church not to do so
faces ex communication from the Church, could you please tell me if this
applies to Islam? if it does why don't you leaders inform all bombers and
terrorist that they will be ex communicated. It would go a long way to
calming the Christian and other religious communities in Britain.
Yours in peace Stephen Bates Australia
|I have much sympathy with moslems who are being labelled as terrorists.
There has been an anti-war march which I went on. Why don't you
organize an anti-terrorism march? I am sure many non-moslems would join
you and it would demonstrate solidarity. God be with you.
I felt compelled to write a message of support - I understand that you
have recieved a number of "hate" emails and I have heard many Muslim
communities feel threatened in the light of Thursdays tragedies. I am a
white male of no faith from London and I would like you to know that the
opinions of a few hateful individuals does not represent the opinion of
the majority; the vocal minority will always make their voices heard louder.
The majority of Londoners live happily side-by-side with people of all
faiths and backgrounds and in times like these it is more important than
ever that we show unity and solidarity in the face of terrorism: it is
important to remember that terrorism is not exclusive to people of
faith. Victimisation of communities because of their background or faith
is in itself a form of terrorism. I support the positive contribution
people of all faiths including Islam bring to our country and I for one
will do all I can to make sure no one in my community is victimised.I
believe the majority of non-Muslims make the distinction between
"extremists" and the Muslims in our community who really represent your
faith and who, like yourselves, condemn this violence the same as the
rest of us.
| I would like to apologise unreservedly for the hate emails you have recieved from a minority of short sighted, bigoted citizens following the London Bombings last Thursday. Thankfully these people represent only a minute proportion of the population, the vast majority of us live, work and socialise with people from all races, religions and cultures and are proud to do so. I would also point out that I am white, born and bred in England. Again 30,000 apologies.
|I would like to express my disgust on hearing that you have received
messages of hate since the bombing in london.
I am only one voice but please know that I represent many many people across
Scotland, the rest of the UK and in other parts of the world - all my
friends and family, I can vouch for every one!
I simply want to say am not Muslim, I am an aetheistand a pacifist, I
believe everyone has responsibility for their own actions and I do not think
those of Muslim faith share more responsibility for the ills of our world
than any other group in society. We must learn to chrish and appreciate
every life as of equal value.|

It has saddend me to hear that you have been receiving hate mail and threats since the terrible events on Thursday. What an inappropriate response.It just plays into the hands of the people of terror.
As Shaykh Abdul-Qayyum said on Friday "The evil people who planned and carried out these indiscriminate acts in London are criminals.No religion can accept what they have done".
We can only hope and pray that acts like these will bring the peoples of these islands closer together and thus defeat the intention of the perpetrators of such acts.
Peace be with us all
I wanted to let you all know how I have admired the dignity, grace and
eloquence that I have seen in every interview with Muslims over the past
week. I would like you to know that any violence or recrimination that is
meted out in the name of revenge, by no means represents the view of the
majority. As a Christian, I would like to say how I look forward to
standing side by side with yourselves and people of all other faiths and
moving on together to a future of respect, tolerance, understanding, love
I heard on the news yesterday that the mcb was receiving a lot of hate mail and I want to respond by sending you the opposite, I wanted to send a message of love and peace. I have lived in east London all my life and I love it here.
The people who are sending you hate messages are ignorant fools. I think the vast majority of people in this country don't blame Muslims for the attacks on Thursday, but it is just they probably wont be sending you messages.
so I thought I would
|dear muslim of britain|

public point of view.thank you for reading my letter and i wish you the
|Wishing you peace at this very difficult time. Also sorrow and
solidarity about the barrage of hate messages. Just want you to know
that there are many non- muslims thinking of you and praying for you.
Blessings and Peace, Anna Davie

I am so sorry that you have received messages of hate.Some people are stupid, some are fearful of anyone that is different and some are just plain evil.This country needs its Muslims- Jews- Buddists and Sihks.
Please forgive us.
