Muslims may join Holocaust Day

Finally Some one talking Sense?….

SENIOR members of the Muslim Council of Britain are planning to end its boycott of Holocaust Memorial Day, The Times has learnt.

Members of the council will meet next month to vote on whether to rescind the boycott.

Increasing numbers of moderates on the council believe a boycott is no longer tenable. One senior insider said there was an increasing likelihood of the boycott coming to an end because it risked doing more harm than good to Britain’s 1.6 million Muslims.


The proposal has the full backing of Dr Muhammad Abdul Bari, the council’s new secretary-general, who said a small committee of the council was working on a proposal to put before the 70-member central working committee in December.

“I want Holocaust Memorial Day to be inclusive,” he said. “If the words ‘Never again’ are to have any meaning, it has to be inclusive.”
