Shahid Malik, a voice of sanity among British Muslims

I may not agree with his politics, particularly those of the middle east, but Shahid Malik is one of the few British Muslim leaders who are prepared to call a spade a spade. Instead of blaming the Government or a multitude of other external causes, he accepts that there are no excuses for Islamic extremism, and that ultimately Britain's Muslims are the only ones who can defeat it, no one can do the job for them. If only there were more like him.
