Complainant Name:
British Muslim Initiative and North London Central Mosque

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Sun

Complaint:

The British Muslim Initiative and North London Central Mosque raised concerns that an article which reported on a Policy Exchange investigation into material sold at British mosques was misleading. The complainants emphasised that a subsequent Newsnight investigation had challenged the findings of the report, suggesting that it was partially based on forged evidence.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper removed the article from its website and published the following letter:

‘Your article ‘Books of hatred at mosques’ (October 30) was taken from an inaccurate report by Policy Exchange based on forged evidence. The report sought to unfairly tarnish the reputations of British mosques, many of which have long been at the forefront of promoting community cohesion and empowering local people.

Report: 77
