The MCB and HMD

The Guardian reports on the decision by the Muslim Council of Britain to maintain its existing policy of not participating in Holocaust Memorial Day. Leading figures in the MCB apparently advocated participation but were voted down 23-14 at a meeting of the MCB’s Central Working Committee.

It might be noted that the very people who condemn the MCB for its stand on this issue are often the same people who characterise the MCB leadership as “self-appointed” and subject to no democratic accountability.
