Dear Rt Hon. Mr. Lewis,

We are writ­ing to express our grave con­cerns regard­ing Islam­o­pho­bia with­in the Con­ser­v­a­tive Par­ty. We agree with, and back calls by the Mus­lim Coun­cil of Britain (MCB) to under­take an inde­pen­dent enquiry into these alle­ga­tions.

The bla­tant Islam­o­pho­bia dur­ing the 2016 Lon­don May­oral cam­paign was sim­i­lar­ly deeply dis­turb­ing and or com­mu­ni­ties are still reel­ing from it. We not­ed the words of Baroness Say­ee­da War­si with alarm about a ‘sim­mer­ing under­bel­ly of Islam­o­pho­bia’ with­in the Con­ser­v­a­tive Par­ty.

It’s time for your par­ty to take con­crete steps in address­ing Islam­o­pho­bia and erad­i­cate these poi­so­nous ele­ments with­in the par­ty.

British Mus­lims look for­ward to hear­ing from you.

Yours Sin­cere­ly,

Wifaqul Ula­ma
