ENGAGE writes to the Press Complaints Commission

 ENGAGE has sent a letter to the Press Complaints Commission concerning the headline in the Daily Star on 6 November, 'Poppies banned in terror hotspots'.

The letter states: 'The use of the term ‘banned’ in the headline is clearly inaccurate and misleading given that there is clearly no ban in operation at all. The headline obviously contravenes Clause 1 of the PCC’s Code of Practice. 

In addition, we would argue that the headline was designed deliberately to incite anti-Muslim prejudice – a practice that Richard Desmond’s papers seem to indulge in day in and day out, sadly without any censure from the Press Complaints Commission'.

The full letter can be read here.

Fantastic work by engage, and I look forward to seeing what is to come, I envision a bright future for engage and inshaAllah this will be very helpful for the Muslim community, and Britain at large, saving it from the prejudiced spiral it is going through.
