MCB Responds to Shocking News That Replica
Mosques are Being Used as Army Firing Targets
The Muslim Council of Britain was shocked and saddened to
learn of replica mosques being used as Army firing targets in Catterick.
Allowing the places of worship to be used in this manner sends out all the
wrong signals on so many levels. The MCB raised the issue with the Ministry
of Defence in the past and is now raising once again to seek clarification.
Dr Muhammad Abdul Bari, Secretary General of the Muslim Council of
Britain said Over many months mosques in this country have been at the
forefront of anti-Muslim hate campaigns, vandalism and even arson attacks.
This totally unacceptable and worrying practice of using replica mosques as
firing targets plays into the very hands of those on the far-right who take
aim at mosques.
The Army must go beyond simply apologising and
acknowledging that this insensitive practice must now stop. They have worked
hard to highlight the contribution of Muslims in our armed forces. We hope
swift action is taken to safeguard this good work and ensure cohesion.
The Muslim Council of Britain is the UK's largest
Muslim umbrella body with around 500 affiliated national, regional and local
organisations, mosques, charities and schools.
