Muslims 'sidelined' in anti-terror policy
Muslims 'sidelined' in anti-terror policy

The government risks sidelining Muslim voices by ignoring the recommendations of working groups set up in the wake of last year's London terrorist attacks, a Labour MP will warn today.

In a Fabian society speech tonight, Sadiq Khan, a former member of the joint Muslim police and security taskforce set up after the July 7 bombings, will accuse the government of causing a "huge amount of frustration" within Muslim communities over its failure to implement a raft of recommendations put forward by established working groups.

Seven working groups were set up in the wake of the London terror attacks to find ways of tackling extremism and the radicalisation of young Muslims.
In his speech, Mr Khan, the MP for Tooting, will say that little of the vision put forward in a report by the working groups had been acted upon.

The report, published before Christmas, identified "inherent injustices" in British foreign policy as a contributory factor in triggering "radical impulses" among British Muslims.

Chaired by leading Muslim community figures, the groups also produced a practical programme of action, with the government pledging at the time to implement "most of it".
