‘Wrong perception of Islam in UK big challenge for Muslims’
The core challenge that Muslim community is facing at the United Kingdom was the wrong perception of the Islam prevalent among British and other communities,” said United Kingdom Islamic Mission (UKIM) chief Dr Zahid Pervez.
Dr Pervez, who was recently on a visit to Pakistan, said this while exclusively talking to Daily Times, at a local hotel.
He said, “To combat the issue, we availed all chances to interact other communities on various dialogue forums so as to convince them that the Islam is a religion of peace and harmony, and we got very positive impacts of measures in that direction. He said that Muslim community was playing a vital role in the UK. They were contributing in business, services sector and even armed and law enforcement agencies.
Talking about the situation, he said that during last decade the situations for Muslims in Western world, including the UK, took several turns. Describing his viewpoint, he continued that in pre 9/11 scenario, Muslims were living in the UK with peace, prosperity and ideal relations with their British inhabitants. “Soon after the incident, a storm of anti-Muslim sentiments tensed the situations. Muslims were targeted with hatred and even on various occasions, Sikhs were beaten up due to their beards. “At that time, the British government came forward and supported Muslims and provided them with maximum protection till 7/7 banged,” he said adding that in post 7/7 situation, the government started to doubting Muslims, their mosques and community centres were started to be monitored. “At that time several lobbies, working as stakeholders of the society appeared jointly against the Islam and Muslims.”
