Muslims Against Terrorism

FACT: There are over 1.5 billion Muslims around the world. The vast majority of Muslims condemn terrorism. Wholeheartedly. Unequivocally.

Since its inception in 1997, the Muslim Council of Britain has consistently condemned terrorism and looked for meaningful ways to challenge terrorism. On this page you can see our past statements and our actions.

Dealing with terrorism

The Muslim Council of Britain is an umbrella organisation that seeks to improve and reflect British Muslim life. Terrorism, sadly, has cast a dark shadow over Muslim communities even though our issues transcend this recent phenomena.

Nevertheless, the Muslim Council of Britain has and will continue to be proactive in supporting efforts to keep our nation safe, secure and peaceful. If anyone has any information of possible unlawful activities, they should report it to the Police. For possible terrorist activity, please call 999 in an emergency, or the police anti-terrorist hotline on 0800 789 321.
