Working of the Muslim Parliament
The issues the parliament tackles arise either through its own research or when approached by community bodies or individuals for assistance. The Muslim Parliament uses its standing and political clout to promote and highlight the issues involved. Over the years, it has emerged as the first port of call for many Muslims.
- Highlighting issues of Islamophobia and discrimination
- Campaigning against forced marriages and domestic problems
- Campaigning against the Anti-Terrorism Acts 2000 & 2001
- Campaigning for equal citizenship for British Muslims
- Tackling women’s concerns through the Muslim Women’s Institute
- Monitoring government legislation and opposing it when necessary
- Highlighting underachievement of Muslim children in state schools
- Campaigning to convert the mosque into a vital focus of activity and the intellectual power-house of the community
- Supporting the works of Campaign Against Criminalising Communities (CAMPACC), Liberty (The National Council for Civil Liberties), Committee to Defend Asylum Seekers, Anti-War Coalition and others
