Islam

The influence of radical Islam is growing in the UK and as an ideology it seeks to shape our political and social landscape. From the introduction of sharia councils, and Islamic finance, to the implications on freedom of speech and women’s rights, the presence of Islamism in the UK has great repercussions for all of us. At Christian Concern we aim to raise awareness of the impact that this may have on the UK and offer a Christian response.
