The Muslim Council of Britain is to hold its 13th Annual General Meeting this Sunday 20 June 2010 at the London Muslim Centre, Whitechapel, London. Delegates representing the range of Muslim civil society – mosques, ulama bodies, and professional associations – are assembling from across Britain, including Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland to elect a new Central Working Committee, and also office-bearers for the 2010-2012 term.
The occasion will mark the conclusion of Dr Muhammad Abdul Bari’s tenure as Secretary General, having served the maximum of two terms permitted by the MCB’s Constitution. He has been an unassuming, dedicated and tireless worker for the interests of Muslims in Britain, and the MCB will continue to value his wise counsel.
The AGM will also include a panel discussion on ‘How Should Muslims Engage in the New Politics’ chaired by radio producer Hasan Patel and conclude with an evening reception attended by interfaith leaders, Muslim MPs and diplomats and other MCB well-wishers.[Ends]
