Four British Muslims make it to parliament

“Four Muslim candidates won British elections, in what many of the three-million strong minority hailed as a considerable victory that could lead to a more political role in the heavy-weight European country.”

“Only four Muslims were elected to the House of Commons. The three main political parties fielded 48 Muslim candidates at the general elections, most in unwinnable seats, and altogether a record 74 Muslim candidates stood for elections. There should be at least 20 Muslims in the House of Commons to reflect its population.”
