Rememberance Sunday: Memorial Campaign

For those of you who subscribe to Emel magazine, you will have noticed that this months edition is all about sacrifice of Muslim Soldiers, who gave their lives and their limbs in the name of duty in both the First and Second World Wars. Their website has a short video on the subject here and they are also running a campaign for a Muslim memorial:

"At emel, we believe it is of great significance for our society that history is remembered accurately and fairly. We are therefore calling for a consultation process to find a fitting memorial for the forgotten Muslims who died during the two World Wars.

Whether it should be a national memorial or a series of local memorials in towns that sent large numbers of Muslim men to the front line or a permanent exhibition in one of our nation’s museums is a matter for discussion"

You can sign their petition here.
