Important Legal Guidance for Imams and Scholars

  • During election season it is vital that our religious organisations remain in line with UK law whilst participating actively as they can.
  • Failure to do so can adversely affect individuals, organisations and election candidates and result in fines.
  • The Muslim Vote legal team have put together legal guidance for masajid, charities, imams and scholars.
  • This guidance is NOT just the standard guidance issued to charities – it specifically addresses the issue of “spiritual influence” which previously rendered Lutfur Rahman’s election win null and avoid and resulted in a £250k fine.

Please share as widely as possible with all the Imams, scholars and religious leaders in your network to protect them.
