The Muslim Council of Britain warmly welcomes the appointment of Trevor Phillips as the new Chairman of the Council for Racial Equality.
"We certainly look forward to the day when the CRE helps us achieve the final eradication of the more blatant inequalities in our society and then the very reason for its existence will have been removed," said Mr Iqbal Sacranie, Secretary-General of the MCB.
"The Muslim community recognises that Mr Phillips is well qualified in his own right but also note his valued contribution as a member of the Runnymede Commission on Islamophobia. We very much look forward to working with him for the common good," said Mr Sacranie.
