Calling for a First World War Muslim Memorial in Britain
0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!
Over 400 000 Muslim soldiers from undivided India (including present day Pakistan) participated in the First World War for Great Britain, in many areas of conflict around the world. My two Great Grandfathers were also involved in the Great War as part of the British Indian Army.
These soldiers exhibited great bravery and sacrifices, with many thousands giving their lives.
My ambition is for these Muslim soldiers to be remembered and no longer remain 'forgotten'.
This petition calls on the Government to actively support plans for a permanent national monument to these Muslim soldiers of the Great War. This memorial will have positive benefits for integration and community cohesion in our nation, by highlighting our strong shared history.
