On Wednesday 23rd November 2011 at the Muslim College, the MINAB held a discussion on“The role of faith institutions in tackling domestic violence.”
The aim of the discussion was to grow an awareness of issues surrounding domestic abuse. To work towards creating an environment within the faith institution in Britain in which domestic abuse is understood and recognized as unacceptable and where appropriate responses are available.
The discussion highlighted some of the excellent work being done by local and national faith groups and provided an opportunity for inter faith learning and cooperation. However there was real concern that at times there was apathy, and neglect by institution and faith leaders on this issue.
