British Muslims’ body launches campaign to save ‘marriage’
LONDON: The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), the umbrella body representing Britain’s Muslims, on Thursday launched a campaign "to defend the institution of marriage”, in particular by opposing the government’s proposals to change the legal definition of marriage.
A new website – Muslims Defending Marriage – was launched to serve as the campaign’s main tool. The website features an online petition, briefings and useful links. MCB Secretary General Farooq Murad said, "We have launched ‘Muslims Defending Marriage (MDM)’ as we felt we had a duty to defend the meaning of marriage, guard its sanctity and protect the welfare of children.” (...)
