Apologies and Retractions

Writing in complaint of inaccurate or defamatory material is your right as a citizen and an individual. Muslims are increasingly forcing newspapers to rethink their irresponsible practices by using legal means of redress.

The Daily Express printed an apology to Inayat Bunglawala, in both print and online editions for a story that grotesquely misrepresented his comments.

The Sun newspaper was similarly forced to retract the contents of a story on a Muslim bus driver which were proven to have been fabricated. The apology is re-printed below and can be read here
