London Mayor rejects attacks on MCB

Mayor“The MCB has been unwavering in urging Muslims to help the police find anyone associated with terrorist attacks. In the past its leadership went to Iraq to try to help free British hostages. Those conducting what I consider a witch-hunt against the MCB are doing great harm to the fight against terrorism. They must ask themselves in what way they are helping the fight against terrorism by waging a campaign of demonisation and spin against this representative body of British Muslim organisations.”
