Scrolling news:

Muslim councillors and schools

29th Jun 2018

Sir, Your annual list of Muslims elected as councillors and Muslim schools GCSE table is commendable. It cannot be found anywhere. You are doing a valuable contribution to your stellar work.

I know it must be tedious to find Muslim councillors from the thousands of elected councillors and compiling list of Muslim schools table. No wonder Muslim organisations and research institutions are not undertaking such a useful endeavour.

The Muslim News is truly a unique media giving us information, news and Muslim successes which no other media does, including other Muslim media.

I just wish you were weekly. It must be budget constraints that you cannot do it. It is so unfortunate the Muslim business people do not appreciate the work that you are doing for not only the Muslim community but the society at large.

Yours

Sir, I didn’t realise that as many as 380 Muslim councillors were elected in the last local elections. No one has published such a list.
Your analysis on how many of them are men, women, how many are Labour, Conservative and Liberal Democrat is excellent.

It seems, like the MPs, a large majority are Labour (340) and only a meagre 20 are Tory and 18 Lib Dem. Shame on the Tories and Lib Dems.

Yours
