Muslims snub drive against BNP

Well, so the Jewish Chronicle claims:

“Muslim interfaith activist Fiyaz Mughal is upset at the non-attendance of MCB representatives at a meeting held under the aegis of Faith Matters at Westminster last Friday. Mr Mughal – the Faith Matters director who was awarded an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours – had invited 25 ‘key figures’ from ethnic and religious groups to discuss the way forward after the BNP had taken two seats in the European elections. The absence of MCB delegates was ‘disappointing because this was an opportunity to learn from other communities about dealing with a common enemy,’ he said.”

It’s only when you get to the bottom of the column that you find:

“An MCB spokesman said he was unaware of the invitation. He indicated that the council would consider becoming involved in the initiative if approached by the Board of Deputies.”
