The Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association UK consider the letter to senior Muslims from Communities Secretary Eric Pickles as a positive initiative and welcome any attempt to try and curb extremism or radicalisation.

Islam teaches that you should love your country and so we agree wholeheartedly that Muslims living in the UK should take pride in this country. Muslims are taught that they should treat any act of wisdom or goodness as though it is their lost inheritance. Thus in the same way Muslims should seek to adopt and inculcate the many positive values present in British society.

In Britain there is genuine religious freedom and religious tolerance and we as Muslims are grateful for this and consider this to be a great virtue of British society.
