The Government’s review of the Muslim Brotherhood makes passing mention of the East London Mosque, casting unfounded suspicion by association, in a misleading and flawed report that undermines and unfairly characterises much of the British Muslim mainstream.

The East London Mosque, with its deep historical roots in Britain's religious and cultural life for over 105 years, rejects the implication that it has been involved in local party politics, demanded shariah law in the UK, or believes that Muslims cannot co-exist in the West due to their faith. On the contrary, the East London Mosque has consistently promoted good citizenship, civic engagement and interfaith dialogue, as part of the mainstream Islamic view that there is no inherent contradiction in living faithfully as a Muslim in Britain.
