David Cameron extremism speech: Muslim leaders give their views on the PM's plans
Mohammed Shafiq: Chief Executive, Ramadhan Foundation
I am concerned that yet again Cameron is conflating the issue of extremism and terrorism with those of cohesion and integration.
He says that Muslims are not doing enough to integrate and that risks fostering extremism – but just what is enough and how do you measure it?
There is also a contradiction between Mr Cameron extolling British values such as free speech and then suggesting that Muslims who object to gay equality are somehow extremist and their views should not be tolerated.
