in response to reader comment: While Londoners sleep. How very Relevant

I feel that you are unaware of your surroundings. This is a beautiful country and the people are very nice. It is my sweet home. It has some great policies and maybe some questionable ones. This is not a secular state; I hope it never becomes one either. I am a Muslim (that is a person that practices the religion Islam) Islam is an Arabic word that means Peace.

If the Christians wanted to build a massive church then that is fine by me and I am sure that none of the Muslim community would oppose such a proposal. In fact I would love to see more of my Christian brothers and sisters going to church and building more churches. Its demand and supply the basics…….

As for your comments about the numbers of Muslims, I would really take a harder look next time you are on your travels. As the last time I looked around me in a mosque I saw Muslims around me from all walks of life and all skin colours, dressed in all types of clothes. Don't make that silly old mistake of judging a book by its cover…. Your comments demonstrate your naivety. Go and seek some knowledge about Islam and Muslims. In fact it might be a good idea if we all tired to understand each other rather than assuming things.

All the best

I pray Peace be with you all. Ameen
