Mohammed Shafiq, Chief Executive of the Ramadhan Foundation comments:
welcome John Denham MP, the Communities Secretary’s strong comments and
leadership on the fascists attacks and demonstrations against Islam.
These groups have one aim and that is to provoke and cause disharmony
amongst our diverse communities and we must come together to defeat it.
I am glad that Mr. Denham has come round to the point made by the
Ramadhan Foundation in recent weeks that Politicians have a duty to come
out and condemn these fascists and their demonstrations.
Yesterday I had the privilege of speaking to a survivor of similar
demonstrations by Oswald Mosley and British Union of Fascists in the
1930’s who told me of the pain she and the Jewish community suffered in
the run up to the 2nd World War and she feels she is reliving
those memories today but the target is Islam and Muslims.
Wherever these fascists in the English Defence League or affiliated
bodies appear there is violence and mayhem on the streets and it is time
for the British people to come together any reject these modern day
fascists. I join Mr. Denham is appealing to remain calm and not allow
these groups success in provoking people.
now hear from the other politicians and leaders, their silence is
