Statement on IICSA report

STATEMENT

Responding to the publishing on 2nd September 2021 of the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) report Child Protection in Religious Organisations and Settings, Zara Mohammed, Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain, said:

“The report makes for difficult reading and underlines the importance of education centred around the wellbeing of children. The protection of children is rooted in our religious traditions and should be at the centre of all Muslim institutions. This includes child safeguarding policies and regular on-going training. Crucially, children must feel confident in reporting any concerns they have. The MCB is committed to providing resources and support for our affiliated organisations, and to sharing good practice already out there, to foster safe and nurturing environments for children in Religious settings”
