Muslim Council of Britain
The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), established in 1997, has a very extensive structure. Its members include mosques, educational and charitable institutions, and women’s and youth organizations operating in the United Kingdom. The MCB operates in the spirit of cooperation, consensus and unity, opposing discrimination against the Muslim minority. It endeavors "to establish a position for the Muslim community in Britain that is fair and based on due rights," while fully respecting the institutions of the state. It undertakes intercultural community and educational initiatives intended to promote full and objective knowledge of Islam and its adherents. The MCB runs informational campaigns, lobbies for legislative changes, issues press statements and maintains a media presence, works with journalistic circles, organizes conferences, gives interviews (e.g., for the BBC and The Times) and runs a charitable foundation.
