London: A delegation of prominent British Muslims is to visit India next week to help understand "key concerns" of Muslims in India and to build up links between followers of the faith in the two countries.

 

The delegation, led by BBC journalist Asad Ahmad, will meet representatives from the social, educational and political fields during its visit to Bangalore, Mumbai, Bhopal and New Delhi Nov 8-13.

 

British officials said in a statement the visitors will try to "understand key concerns of Muslims in India".

 

"The visit would help project a realistic picture of Islam in Britain and enable cross-fertilisation of ideas between British and Indian Muslims," said the statement.

 

It said the visitors will meet with "a range of Indian interlocutors working on integration and community issues as well as prominent Muslims in India".

 

"The UK also wants to engage with Muslim youth to further this dialogue."

 

Other members of the delegation are: Dr Zahoor Qureshi of the Muslim Council of Britain; Farmida Bi, a partner at the law firm Norton Rose LLP in London and named in a Times list of the five most powerful Muslim women in Britain; and lawyer and charity leader Fatim Kurji Jumabhoy.
