Where: Dialogue Society, London
The Conservative Muslim Forum (CMF) will discuss and debate what a Conservative government will mean for the British Muslim community. This involves discussing wider issues which affect all communities such as the economy and youth crime but in particular issues that the British Muslim community find themselves more concerned with such as immigration, multiculturalism, faith schools, discrimination, anti-terrorist legislation and the Prevent strategy - to name a few. Questions to be tackled include but are not restricted to: How will the government engage with the British Muslim community? What will it expect of British Muslims? What will change and how?
