Rise of Islam

KENAN MALIK'S article ("What really angers young Asians", 25 June) is inaccurate. It states that few Asians are religious. This is simply not true.

The mosques in Britain are overcrowded every Friday at jummah prayers. An increasing number of schools, colleges, universities and places of work have prayer rooms. More and more Islamic study circles are being held throughout Britain and there is an overall rise in the level of understanding of the Islamic Deen (ideology).

People turn to Islam (the fastest growing religion) because it is the only true system of belief for mankind, not because of a lack of racial equality. If this were the case, then every racially oppressed person would be religious. This is not happening.
