Don't link extremism to lack of English, Muslim groups tell UK PM Cameron
by Magdalena Mis
British Muslim groups accused Prime Minister David Cameron on Monday of demonizing their communities by saying that Muslim women needed to learn English to reduce the risk of extremism.
Cameron said some migrants to Britain who cannot pass an English test within 2-1/2 years of arriving may not be allowed to stay, a move aimed at fostering greater integration by Muslim women.
He said while there was no direct causal link between poor English language skills and extremism, those who were not able to integrate into British society were at risk of being more susceptible to extremist ideologies.
