    He wants certain Muslim countries to be more accepting of others like London is. It's a fair point, it's a nice compliment for London :yes:

    The title's a bit misleading though.

    That's because in London he's more free to practise his faith because he's shia.

    Lol misleading, the article about Warsi wanting to redesign Mosques so they look more British made me lose brain cells. She's a dumb one.

    Haha I thought that but it's actually a rather lovely article...

    This guy "said he “feels more Islamic” in Britain than other countries because of the freedom to worship and the multicultural mix."

    "He said Islam could be summed up as being about “love and justice” but that the “Muslim political leadership” around the world was failing to foster this." ... whereas London is.

    This is the kinda thing people should be talking about when they say they're 'proud to be British' imo.

    Title could easily be misinterpreted though, and probably will be by quite a few people 🙁

    “I feel that London has more Islamic values than many of the Muslim countries put together.
    There are many different communities living together in peace and harmony, giving respect to the others and loving others and that is what Islam is all about – and unfortunately [much] of the Muslim political leadership has failed to provide that.

    I feel more Islamic living here because I can easily practice my faith and give respect to all other members of the community belonging to different faiths and not even belonging to a faith, to anything.
    Because that is what Islam is all about, respecting and giving to others … if in one line I could say what Islam is all about, it is all about love and justice."
    Good point tbh - London gives us freedom to practice our beliefs. Most Islamic countries have restrictions within their laws of what you can and can't do and they may be based on a particular sect of Islam. If not, then it's the people who are judgmental over what they think makes a good Muslim and what doesn't so if you have certain opinions you kind of have to keep them to yourself. In London the people are accepting and you can practice and believe whatever the **** you want without being attacked for it.

    Yeah it's a huge problem. Progress made in the UK will be reversed thanks to Islam.

    Yeah I know, I read the article. The Shia scholar's statement looks a lot worse on paper than what he actually meant by it. My comment is still relevant though regardless of what the scholar meant by 'more Islamic'.

    The Shia scholar actually meant London was more Islamic because of the freedom of worship and the different communities living together in peace and harmony.

    Did you read the article? It didn't say there was more Muslims, the article was meant to be positive, saying it was more Islamic in the sense that it was more multicultural and accepting, whereas most Islamic countries really only allow the practise of the state version of Islam.
