British Imam: 'Not a single mosque in the UK promotes extremism'

A London Imam has said that there is not a single mosque in Britain that promotes extremism or violence.

Imam Yunus Dudhwala, Head of Chaplaincy & Bereavement at Barts Health NHS Trust, told Yahoo News: ‘To my knowledge, there is not a single mosque in the country that preaches hate, violence, or extremism.

‘It’s the Internet. It’s foreign policy, identity, and previous criminal behaviour that we need to address.’

His statement comes as the Muslim Council of Britain released a letter signed by 132 imams, scholars and leaders of Islamic organisations, condemning the deadly terror attacks in Manchester and London. [Yahoo News UK] Read more
