Reception held for Director General of Home Office Mr Charles Farr CMG OBE with Muslim Community Leaders
The Islamic Cultural Centre organised a reception between Muslim Community leaders and the Director General of Home Office for Security to discuss current issues facing both the Muslim and UK community as a whole.
Dr Ahmad Al Dubayan, Director General of the Islamic Cultural Centre welcomed Mr Charles Farr CMG OBE to the Islamic Cultural Centre. Dr Ahmad talked about the challenges facing the Muslim community in light of education, social life and radicalisation. He also opened a discussion to the gathering of Muslim community leaders about criticisms made in regards to the responsibilities of Islamic Centres, Imams and Islamic Organisations and how their roles should be played in the wider community.
Comments and questions were raised by the attendees of the event which lead to a very productive debate. It was concluded that such receptions should be held more often as they created a strong link between the community and the home office allowing for greater communication and positive engagement.
