Press Release

MAB CLARIFIES ITS POSITION ON THE ATTEMPTED MAKKAH ATTACK STATEMENT

The Muslim Association of Britain (MAB) came to know about an online joint statement in circulation by a group of mosques, titled “The Launch of a Ballistic Missile by the Houthi Group toward Mecca – Saudi Arabia”, in which MAB was included as a signatory as well its logo. MAB has not been party to any discussion about this, nor have we been consulted about the statement. We therefore wish to make it clear that the above statement inaccurately carries our name.

Working for the common good and just causes, MAB condemns the killing of civilians and innocent people in Yemen and other countries like Syria and Iraq; we also condemn in the strongest terms any attempts to attack religious sites, especially Makkah which houses  the Ka’bah (House of God) — Islam’s most sacred mosque, Al-Masjid al-Haram.
