by in Lifestyle on 22nd November, 2019

As the 2019 general elections loom closer Mosques in the UK have been holding voter registrations drives with the help of the Muslim Council of Britain. The drives are helping people sign up and register before the general election on the 12th of December.

Some Mosques that took part were:

  • Finsbury Park Mosque, North London
  • Birmingham Central Mosque, West Midlands
  • Masjid Al-Hikmah, Aberdeen

The deadline to Register is on the 26 November 11.59pm.

Harun Khan, the MCB’s secretary-general, said: “As active participants in our society, Muslims – in all their diversity – can play a significant role in what may become a close election, and we hope that the parties listen and reach out to Muslim communities across the country to engage on issues of concern.”

The MCB said they are focusing on increasing Muslim voter participation and encouraging communities to engage with the election debate.
