Nazir Afzal On The Failure Of British Muslim Leaders To Lead

The former top prosecutor for north-west England writes in The Guardian, "There are 13 Muslim MPs, including eight women, but they do not speak for the faith, rather for their constituents. Imams, with a few excellent exceptions, don’t see their role as anything more than prayer and looking after a building, the mosque – the imam of Dibley is not so different from the vicar in that respect."
