Living in British society with people of all faiths and none, it is imperative that we learn about one another, respect each other’s beliefs or non-beliefs, and strengthen community relations.
The Muslim Council of Britain supports a number of interfaith initiatives throughout the year and advocates for increasing participation of British Muslims in interfaith work in local communities nationwide
