The GMMC was formed in the aftermath of the Manchester Arena Attacks. As ordinary British citizens we were horrified and appalled at the criminal terror attack on our city as a result of which 22 innocent people lost their lives.
As Muslims we wanted to come together and have an honest and open debate about what we could do to prevent such an incident happening again and also to combat the conditions that facilitate such an incident to occur in the first place.
This would require the community to come together setting aside differences whether religious, political or sectarian in favour of our shared British identity.
The mission of GMMC is to identify shared interests of the Muslims community, speak with a collective voice and coordinate our actions to mutually benefit our community and the Greater Manchester region.
