A pop-up memorial for the victims of Paris attacks on November 14, 2015 at Marseille Vieux Port, southern FranceFeeling unfairly targeted by the government’s anti-radicalisation drive, Britain’s Muslim community is rallying to find its own response to extremism and take a greater role in the fight against terrorism. The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) has planned a series of conferences around the country where community leaders, activists and others will speak out against jihadist ideology, but also government security measures they say alienates Muslims. “We do know that for any policy to succeed it needs to involve Muslim communities as part of the solution and not only as part of the problem,” said MCB secretary general Shuja Shafi at the first of a series of conferences in London this week.
