London, UK, August 30 – Over a thousand people from across the UK will attend a day long national conference in London on Sunday [4 September 2005] convened by the non-violent Islamic political party, Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain. The conference entitled 'Hizb ut-Tahrir and the Vision for the Caliphate' will throw light on the work of Hizb ut-Tahrir and the Caliphate. It will also dispel the misrepresentation and misunderstanding of Islam in the West.
Speakers at the meeting include Dr Abdul Wahid, a general practitioner and member of Hizb ut-Tahrir's UK Executive Committee, Jamal Harwood, a management consultant and media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain, Taji Mustafa, an IT engineer and editor of Salam magazine, Dr Abdullah Robin, a molecular biologist and managing editor of New Civilisation magazine, Dr Nazreen Nawaz, a medical practitioner and women's media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain and Dr Imran Waheed, a psychiatrist and media representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain.
Dr Imran Waheed, Media Representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain, said, "The conference comes at a time when proclamations of Western politicians and thinkers have placed Islam, Hizb ut-Tahrir and the Caliphate in the world?s spotlight. Those who work to see the return of the Caliphate have been labelled as adherents of an "evil ideology". Muslim thinkers who advocate Islamic governance have been labelled 'extremist' by some in the media. Islam's view towards women and non-Muslims is frequently misrepresented. These are just some of the issues the conference will seek to throw light on."
"We extend a warm invitation to this conference to all those who want to understand our non-violent political work for the Caliphate in the Muslim world."
The conference will take place on Sunday September 4th 2005 at 11.00 a.m. at Friends House, 173 Euston Road, London, NW1 2BJ. The conference will end at 6.30 p.m.
