Muslim Groups Urge British Muslims to Participate in the Electoral Process

1 May 2012

Muslim interest in the British political process has traditionally been low. Due to alienation and lack of trust in the system the Muslim minority has shown a very limited turn out in the election. Muslims organizations have been trying to tackle this problem and raise awareness amongst Muslims to be more active in the political system.

Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), which represents more than 500 Islamic organisations in Britain, has urged British Muslims to cast their votes prior to local elections.
