Muslim Support For The Poppy Appeal 2014

EDM number 495 in 2014-15, proposed by Philip Davies on 10/11/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Armed forces, Armed forces welfare, Charities and Religion and faith communities.

That this House recognises the contribution of many Muslim soldiers to victories in both world wars; welcomes the efforts being made in the Muslim community to encourage the wearing of poppies in remembrance of all those who paid the ultimate price for freedom; notes the design and launch of a new poppy headscarf for Muslim women to wear in support of this cause; appreciates that these efforts will undoubtedly enhance community relations; and believes they will also help to counter the deplorable actions of a small number of extremists, who in no way represent the views of the overwhelming majority of Muslims, who have symbolically burned the poppy in the name of Islam in recent years.

This motion has been signed by a total of 26 MPs.
