Complainant Name:
Mr Aslam Hansa

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Mail on Sunday

Complaint:

Mr Aslam Hansa of the Noor Ul Islam Trust complained that an article was inaccurate and misleading when it alleged that the Mumbai terrorists had been “funded by cash raised in UK mosques”.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper – which sought to corroborate the claim – published the following letter from the complainant:

Your recent article claimed funds raised in UK mosques were used to support the group responsible for the Mumbai terror attack last November. Any suggestion that law-abiding British mosques would allow such fund-raising is entirely unsubstantiated and quite wrong. We condemn any such activity.

Report: 78
