Following the 7 July 2005 London bombings, the MCB was uncritical of the UK government's official narrative, and stated that "All of us must unite in helping the police to capture these murderers."[1]

Support for Palestine

On 3 March 2008, the MCB criticised the UK Foreign Secretary David Miliband's response to Israel's killing of over 100 Palestinians in Gaza as "blatantly one-sided." It said, "If we are serious about wanting peace, we must act as honest brokers, not partisan bystanders."[2]

Challenging "Non-violent extremism"

The Muslim Council of Britain expressed fears in 2015 that the UK government's focus on the concept of non-violent extremism would “set new litmus tests which may brand us all as extremists”.[3]
