Birmingham Central Mosque, PREVENT and the Misleading West Midlands Police Commissioner

“Pointed questions need to be raised before the masjid. Does it endorse PREVENT and therefore threaten the relationship of trust between the masjid officials and Imam and the community of Birmingham? Does it approve of risking the lives of young Muslim men in campaigns which may require the shedding of blood of fellow Muslims? Is the masjid content with being a conduit for neocon securitisation agendas which seek to repress Muslim discourse?

Birmingham Central Mosque has much to explain to the Muslim community of Birmingham.”



I have been monitoring the situation in Birmingham and specifically the Birmingham Central Mosque since early last year.

If we recall, Muslim Labour Councillor and Chair of Birmingham Central Mosque, Muhammad Afzal, called PREVENT racist at a crucial period where Muslim communities were issuing statements up and down the country rejecting the policy with similar rhetoric. The media and political spin machine took action and a campaign was launched to discredit the elderly Councillor. Deformist Shaista Gohir and neocon Khalid Mahmood also contributed to the assault.

Bullied by the Charity Commission?
