A Very Merry Muslim Christmas Report
The contribution that Muslim charities make to society is undervalued, especially at Christmas, according to a group of MPs and peers.
A Very Merry Muslim Christmas, published this week by the All Party Parliamentary Group on British Muslims, aims to raise awareness of the positive work of Muslim charities.
In the foreword to the report Anna Soubry, Conservative MP for Broxtowe, and Wes Streeting, Labour MP for Ilford North, who are co-chairs of the committee, said: “Muslim charities come to our attention because of negative media coverage of governance issues or bad practice among a handful of individuals working in the charity sector, or, because of latent fears about charities being abused for terrorism financing.”
The report is based on oral and written evidence presented to the group in November and aims to “showcase some of the amazing initiatives developed and delivered by Muslim charities, and to counter the negative stereotypes which mask and distort so much of the wonderful work they do in local communities”.
