Respected Sister/Brother in Islam
Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullah,
Your vote matters on 7 May.
With a very close election predicted, YOU have the chance to hold your elected representatives to account and change the shape of British politics.
We urge you and your mosque to highlight the importance of voting next month and participating in the democratic process.
It is important for Muslims to vote on issues that concern us as citizens. As a community we still face issues that hamper our progress, but we can make change.
Based on consultations with our affiliate network and focus groups, the Muslim Council of Britain today publishes a document highlighting these concerns. Entitled ‘Fairness, Not Favours: British Muslim Perspectives at the 2015 General Election’ this document outlines various issues facing our community.
Please read and download here, and send to your prospective Parliamentary candidates: http://www.mcb.org.uk/muslimvote/fairness-not-favours-2015/
You know the issues that affect you locally and to your lives. Make sure you cast your vote on 7 May to create change.
Please note, you will be unable to vote if you have not registered. The deadline for voter registration is 20th April – please encourage all to register before this date. You can register online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.
