The Muslim Council of Britain today condemned reports of threats against Muslim Members of Parliament, in this case against Sadiq Khan MP, over his voting on Gay Marriage. Speaking out against the threats, Farooq Murad, Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain said: "Such threats are unacceptable and have no justification in our faith. The Muslim Council, along with many of our affiliates, joined other faith groups campaigning against the government's proposals for gay marriage. We have every right to feel extremely disappointed that many Muslim MPs voted for the redefinition of marriage, even though it was a free vote. However, we believe the way to speak out is through engagement. We should also remember that MPs represent their party's stand on its manifesto and are elected by the constituents, and us, on that basis. We should work harder in using the democratic processes for accountability and change of policy."
