contribution sets out the challenges for the Mosques to ensure that
they encompass the needs of young Muslims in the 21st
Century. Without considering these needs we will see continued
disillusionment with the Mosques.
Mohammed Shafiq, Press Spokesman of the Foundation comments:
pay tribute to the hard work of our elders in establishing Mosques in
this country, without their sacrifices and hard work we would not be
where we are. Having said this we need to recognise that our
Mosques need to reform and change to ensure that Young Muslims are
heard and services are provided to them in English.
welcome the work that many Muslim organisations are doing in this area
but we now need to see action from the mosque committees and
voice of Young Muslims is clear and now is time to listen”
