With parties that have waged wars on sovereign Muslim countries, introduced laws that are common in Orwellian police states, and defended the right of a PPC to post offensive images of the most revered figure in Islam; Muslims are hardly spoilt for choice this General Election.

Shohana Khan | Posted 25.05.2015 | UK Politics
Shohana Khan

The British values debate has refused to look with the open mind it claims to be shaped by, upon Islamic values and honestly ask why such a wide range of Islamic practices and views have been seen as a problem for life in Britain.
