As people around the world mark the 100th anniversary of the start of World War 1, the Federation of Muslim Organisations (FMO) offers its gratitude to all those who fought to preserve the freedoms which people of all faiths and backgrounds now enjoy. Suleman Nagdi of the FMO said, “The Muslim community offers its thoughts, thanks and remembers the sacrifices by people all across the Commonwealth who fought in World War 1. The conflict which many Muslims and people of all faiths died in, from countries and colonies across the globe, serves as a reminder that even 100 years on, we have much work to do to. The conflicts in many parts of the world today inform us that there are millions of people who are still living under violence and destruction. It is high time that everyone, every country seriously adheres to international law and basic human rights, which would be a fitting tribute to the millions who perished a century ago”.
