Muslim Liberal Democrat members and activists from across all parts of UK came together on Saturday May 03 in Birmingham to promote a strong Muslim network within the party in support of greater inclusion, dialogue and campaigning.

The key aims of the Network are to promote the party amongst Muslim communities across UK, provide a support mechanism for Muslim members within the Party, promote dialogue and greater understanding of Muslim communities in UK and promote interfaith dialogue, respect and understanding.

Chief guest Rt Hon. Simon Hughes MP welcomed over 100 Muslim campaigners, many of whom were councillors and approved parliamentary candidates and gave his full support to the launch event.

Parliamentarian Simon Hughes, while welcoming over 100 Muslim campaigners, many of whom were councillors and approved parliamentary candidates, and giving his full support to the launch event said that he completely understood the value to the party and need for such an initiative whilst endorsing the invaluable role that it will play in acting as a bridge to the 2.7 million Muslims in the UK.

Simon Hughes MP acknowledged the positive influence and the contribution that the growing Muslim communities were having in the country, and that Muslims should be appropriately represented throughout the UK's leadership

Issan Ghazni, who had organised the launch, was elected by the meeting to become the new organisation's first interim Chair to lead the Network up until its first AGM.

The meeting also appointed an interim Council of 30 members from across the country to support Issan Ghazni in this role.

"The new network would help to steer the Liberal Democrat Party towards a greater and more positive understanding of UK's Muslim communities", Issan Ghazni said, after his appointment to the post.

"The Liberal Democrat Party above all others has the ability to be at the forefront of the development of a more inclusive approach to politics whilst promoting liberal values not only in the UK, but internationally as well", he added.
