Celebrating the Muslim Contribution to the UK Economy
‘London has become a major financial capital of the Muslim world.’ That statement may sound alarming at first, given that the United Kingdom is rightly a Christian country with an established Church.
Yet, it is thanks to this, and her evolution as a parliamentary democracy that has led to many British Muslims making this country their home, contributing to the UK economy and helping Britain become ever more prosperous. Britain has had a long history with the Muslim world. Not just through the days of colonialism, but also as equal partners in trade. With that heritage, and with British Muslim connections to the Muslim world, the United Kingdom can and has
acted as a bridge for trade, understanding and peace.
