The question is: how will local MP Gordon Prentice respond to this petition? According to the Burnley Express, Mr Prentice has stated:
There are concerns that Islamic Help may have been acting outside its charitable objectives in raising money for a boarding school in the UK. I shall be raising the issue with the chair and chief executive of the Charity Commission when I meet them on Thursday.Evidently, even a Labour droid such as Prentice realises that many of his constituents have been pushed beyond endurance by this latest move towards the Islamisation of the town. As can be seen from the following link - http://www.sultaniamosquebrierfield.org.uk/ - Brierfield is already blighted by the new Sultania Mosque; its turquoise domes and minaret make a bold symbolic claim to Muslim ownership of Brierfield’s public space, so it seems appropriate that the mosque’s website should feature a menacing soundtrack featuring the sounds of a heartbeat of someone seemingly on the verge of death.
This citizens’ initiative may not be on the same scale as the recent minaret ban in Switzerland, but it just goes to demonstrate that the efforts of publicly minded citizens such as the members of the Clitheroe Road Residents’ Association can still make a stand against Islamisation in the UK. I just hope that they are successful in blocking the school plans. However, there is still some way to go in preventing the Islamising agenda of the ‘charity’ behind the project, for the latter has stated that it is also examining purchasing Brierfield Mills with a view to converting it for a variety of Islamic uses. So, I wish good luck to the Clitheroe Road Residents’ Association, for you will need it.
