Trump signs ban

US President Donald Trump signs travel ban.

Muslim Council of Wales’ Secretary General Mr Saleem Kidwai OBE has spoken to ITV over concerns in the wake of the travel bans imposed by US President Donald Trump:

“The Muslim Council of Wales is extremely concerned by the Trump administration’s Muslim ban.

We must call the ban by what it is. It has banned citizens from seven Muslim majority countries, with an exemption for religious minorities. He has come through on his election pledge of a Muslim ban.

We have heard of many people living in America with green cards concerned about leaving.

This is a dangerous step. We must all be vigilant of the slowly creeping fascism.

I ask Theresa May and our politicians to use every influence to resist this Muslim ban.”

This is a wonderful opportunity for the wider community to visit their local mosque, meet the local Muslim community, learn about the religion of Islam, and most importantly, make new friends! Please see the list below to find the mosque closest to you!
