MCBThe Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) is appalled to see the utterly discriminatory provision of the new gay marriage legislation proposed by the government.

Farooq Murad, the Secretary General of the MCB said: “We find it incredible that while introducing the bill in the House, culture secretary Maria Miller could keep a straight face when offering exemption for the established Church while in the same breath claiming, fairness to be at the heart of her proposals.

“It is not just the ‘Church of England and Church in Wales’ who “explicitly” stated strong opposition’ as Mrs. Miller says, the Muslim Council of Britain along with most other faith groups also made equally strong representation.”

The MCB is seeking an urgent meeting with the Culture Secretary to express the concerns of the Muslim community on the proposed legislation.
