The Muslim Council of Britain is delighted to support this Sunday’s forthcoming Global Peace and Unity conference to be held at the Excel Centre in London.

“Over 20,000 British Muslims are expected to attend this major event, the largest of its kind ever to be held in Britain. This event will be a celebration of what it is to be a British Muslim and there will be a range of family and social entertainment throughout the day,” said Sir Iqbal Sacranie, Secretary-General of the Muslim Council of Britain.

In a major speech on issues affecting British Muslims, Sir Iqbal will showcase the MCB as an inclusive umbrella body that seeks Muslim solidarity, national unity and prosperity. He will outline the MCB’s vision of Muslims in a multi-cultural Britain in the 21st century.

The Global Peace and Unity conference is being organised by the Islam Channel (SKY channel 836) and will feature eminent speakers from different parts of the globe including the Muslim World, Europe, the US and the UK.
