If this report is correct then I do support the government efforts and heartedly appreciate it. In my opinion government is trying hard and has tried hard in past to convince the British Muslim’s that Government or normal public is not against the religion.
Today most of British Muslim is saying that they are not happy with the policies of government, ok fair enough but you don’t bomb the whole country because you not happy with few elected members of parliaments and their decision. Do you?
No body labeled any Muslims as fanatic or extremist, till they don’t bring religion in every way of life. Take a recent example Muslims organization demanded special treatment from government and they said in this following article that “’If you give us religious rights, we will be in a better position to convince young people that they are being treated equally along with other citizens.”
They asked government to let them implement Sharia Law for their own family matters, which is in my opinion is extremism why the hell a non Islamic country, with his own constitution will allow any other law which can threaten the main entity of country “Constitution”? When you live in democratic country you are abide to follow main constitution law, you can’t make your own laws nor can government give any particular faith favor to practice their own religious law which can challenge the main entity of democratic country “Constitution”.
I said it earlier and still want to say that we as resident or citizen of this beautiful country must understand it is not possible for government to make every one happy at a same time. Because it’s a democratically elected government so they go according to simple rule, majority wins. And government policies doesn’t change by terrorist threats, you can’t bow your heads in front of terrorist and criminals. When ever governments of any country make policies, they make it by taking whole picture in their mind of internal and external threats, so that they can provide better and secure place for their own citizen.
I guess it’s a peak time to have a proper debate about this issue, government should do bit more to help these young Muslims to understand how our policies works. We should bring some really intellectual and scholars who understand a lot more about Holy Quran ( not the one who comes in Sharia TV, they bloody don’t agree with each other statements) to tell these people, what Quran says, and help the government to let these people know about UK governments policies and issues.
Muslims leaders should come forward and give proper statements and assure these young and vulnerable people, that government and normal public of this country is with them, they are not isolated and neglected. We need proper Muslims scholars (not moderate or extremists Muslims) to do this job.
Make this country, more safe and secure.
LONDON – The British government would like to change the perception in the Muslim world that its foreign policies are hostile as part of reforms aimed at reducing terrorism, according to Cabinet documents obtained by a newspaper and published Sunday.
The Sunday Telegraph said it had obtained Cabinet documents that suggest the government aim for a “significant reduction in the number and intensity of the regional conflicts that fuel terror activity.” In an ideal world, “the Muslim would not perceive (Britain) and its foreign policies as hostile,” the documents said.
