UK govt urged to change anti-radicalization strategy, rethink relationship with Muslims (DEBATE)

The UK government is being urged to rethink its relationship with British Muslim communities, as well as its anti-radicalization strategy, known as Prevent. The recommendations come from a report by the charity Citizens UK. It also slams media portrayals of Muslims – and calls for new press guidelines on reporting Muslim-related stories. Political commentators Mo Ansar and David Vance join RT to discuss the issues raised by the report.

The Fight for the Muslim Vote: The British Election

Ahead of the UK general election on May 7, VICE News explores voter apathy within the British Muslim community and finds out if issues such as the country’s counterterrorism policy and Islamophobia are pushing young Muslims into disenfranchisement.

In the 2010 general election, a lower percentage of British Muslims voted than any other religious group. Despite being the fastest growing religion in the UK and boasting more young adherents than any other religion, it appears young Muslims are becoming more and more dissatisfied with the government.

VICE News speaks with Islamists who are rejecting voting and British society, those trying to get Muslims to vote, and those trying to win those votes. We meet with young Muslims to hear their opinions on the election and explore what influences them at a time when they are facing numerous challenges.
