Top Met officer urges fellow Muslims to join battle against 'silent killer' of extremism
by Richard Kerbaj
Britain's most senior Muslim police officer has urged Islamic communities to do more to confront the "silent killer" of extremism, saying they cannot rely only on the police and security services to deal with the threat.
Mak Chishty, a Metropolitan police commander who leads the organisation's community outreach programme, said some moderate Muslims were being deterred from opposing extremism by fundamentalists who equated assisting police with "spying".
Chishty said the Muslim community was an "integral part of modern Britain", but it needed to do more.
