Muslim Peace Conference


On September 24th, roughly 12,000 Muslims gathered in London’s Wembley Arena for a peace conference organised by the Islamic group Minhaj-ul-Quaran. During the conference, the group’s founder, Islamic scholar Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri, gave a keynote speech, in which he condemned terrorism and promoted a moderate, inclusive version of Islam.

British Muslim peace concert held in London

A peace concert in London Sunday aims to focus British Muslims on the bloody conflict in Darfur but also symbolises efforts to unite the community amid widespread suspicion of Islam here, organisers say. “This is really something monumental, it has never been done before,” said Sami Yusuf, a 27-year-old British star who often sings about Islam and is due to top the bill at Wembley Arena in north-west London.
