panorama: A Question of Leadership in General Posted August 22, 2005 The Muslim Council of Britain comes across as some sort of political organisation (mostly through the actions of those that work for it) and when theyâ€™re put to the test, they time and again prove what a shabby political organisation they are. Having said that, I do feel sorry for these brothers, it canâ€™t be easy to seek peace and try to stick to your principles (wrong principles if you ask me â€“ politicians should join political parties not Islamic organisations Ngonge care to share with the rest of us what these wrong principles are. By saying that they should join a poilitical, am I right to infer that you believe islam and politics dont mix. If that is your line of reasoning then sadly the programme producer has succeeded in achieving his set out goals. Here was an attempt to portray islam as spiritual, something you do on a friday. shirwac wrote hate to single out a specific group, but why are Muslim orginizations recognized by the governments in the west are headed by Indo-Pakistanis? Who elected to represent all muslims, and reintroduce Islamic concepts that you only find in the west? for your info 70% of muslims in britain are from the indian sub-continent and as such this will reflect in the organisations. If those qad chewing somalis that gather at southal did something useful with their time perhaps we could change the demographics of these organisations.
