Muslim women taking the lead

It seems that its being left to the women of Islam to stand up against the extremists who call themselvies Muslims.

In a BBC Radio 4 report Zubeida Malik reports on a group of Muslim women who will be laying a wreath later this week at the National Memorial Arboretum in honor of British troops.

The women say they were motivated by their revulsion at the Islamist extremist demonstration in Luton last year and the threats to disrupt commemorations at the repatriation of dead service personnel at Wooton Bassett.

The report includes comments from RAF Group Captain Zahir al-Huq of the Armed Forces Muslim Association who reiterated that many Muslims serve in the armed forced and would give their lives for their country.
