Forum statement: Politicians should counter hate, not propagate it

11 August 2018

The Muslim Jewish Forum of Greater Manchester is alarmed by the recent reporting of antisemitism and anti-Muslim hatred in the main political parties.

We believe that politicians should lead by example and we would hope that all allegations of antisemitism and anti-Muslim hatred are fully investigated and dealt with in a fair and expeditious manner.

The Muslim Jewish Forum has been at the forefront of interfaith work in Greater Manchester for the past 13 years. We believe that working together, standing up for each other, and education about our shared values is the best way forward.

There should be zero tolerance of all forms of racial or religious bigotry. As our Government says, a bedrock value of our society is “mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
