Mehri Niknam, a Jewish woman of the Joseph Interfaith Foundation has established a “National Council of Imams and Rabbis” which has the letter of approval of Farooq Murad of the Muslim Council of Britain, and whose Senior Imam, Shah Jahan Abdul Qayyum is listed as signatory to the violently antisemitic Istanbul Declaration (see signature number 26). Mehri Niknam was the recipient in December 2012 of an official police warning for her criminal misconduct under the Harassment Act 1997 (see our Interfaith Industry Report and our Report on the Joseph Interfaith Foundation).

This multifaith project is fully owned by Stand for Peace, and brings together Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs and other beliefs and faiths, to challenge taxpayers’ money going to organisations which promote or legitimise groups involved in violence or extremism. We oppose the creeping influence of unelected self-appointed “representatives” of faith communities, having backroom political influence over our national democratic life.
