This subject is long overdue and senior leadership of the Conservative Party must investigate thoroughly and its findings published as soon as the enquiry is complete. I appreciate Chairman Conservative Muslim Forum for raising this matter with Teresa May Leader of the Party. One thing I can assure Conservatives that if they continue this bad practice within their ranks this Party will be extinct soon as far as Muslim votes are concerned. Few token Muslim names in this group will not be able to rescue this ship from an impending political disaster in waiting. Ordinary workers and the the whole Muslim community at large is badly experiencing this issue since Conservatives have come into power in recent years. We need a full root and branch overhaul right from an Association to Conservative HQ London. Hope senior leadership will review their practices and do something about it sooner than later.

CMF at charity dinner for Rohingya Muslims

There is a basic principle in life, which is also taught within Islam, that just because you cannot do everything, you are not excused from doing anything. Each good deed we can do, no matter how small, matters. The world has been rightly apalled by Myanmar's treatment of its Rohingya Muslim minori...
