Muslim fears at terror plans

The government has unveiled its package of proposed anti-terror measures – and for many Muslims in Britain it is deeply troubling. No leading Muslim argues against tough measures to prevent terrorism because it is a danger to everyone: the list of the London victims included black and white, rich and poor, Muslim and non-Muslim. But many still regard the government’s response as being, at best, cack-handed and, at worst, having the potential to infuriate an anxious, young constituency that already feels that it is under the spotlight.
