The media has misrepresented our faith, claim Muslims

The media has misrepresented the Muslim faith and aggravated the “Islamaphobic” backlash to the July bombings, members of Birmingham’s Muslim community have claimed. The accusations were made during the visit of Home Office Minister Paul Goggins to the Victoria Street Mosque in Aston yesterday. Members of the mosque said they felt let down by the negative and extreme image of Muslims portrayed in television and newspapers.
