Press Release on Winning the Referendum on Britain’s Membership of the European Union
On the June 23rd, we witnessed what we believe was one of the greatest acts of democracy in our nation’s history. Muslims for Britain welcomes the decision of the British people to leave the European Union.
We are proud of the spirited and passionate case Muslims for Britain supporters and activists made from across the country. We thank them for the hundreds of hours of campaigning they did over the last few months. We worked together taking our optimistic and hopeful message: from house to house, neighbourhood to neighbourhood and city to city. We particularly welcome the results in the following areas where we had strong representation: Bradford, Dewsbury, Sheffield, Bury, Pendle, Birmingham, Coventry, Walsall, Worcester, Nottingham, Derby, High Wycombe, and Woking.
As Boris Johnson said after the referendum result was announced, “I believe we now have a glorious opportunity. We can pass our own laws and set our own taxes, entirely to the needs of the UK economy. We can control our borders in a way that is not discriminatory, and take the wind out of the sails of the extremists and those that would play politics with immigration. Above all, we can find our voice in the world again. Powerful, liberal, human. An extraordinary force for good in the world.”
To our fellow Britons – however you may have voted. Now that the referendum is over, let’s work together strengthen our country economically and socially, the country of which we’re so proud of. Let’s work towards a new politics that works for all.
We love this country and we will do everything in our power to work for its unity, prosperity and well-being.

Muslims For Britain is a new cross-party campaign representing British Muslim interests at a national level.
We believe, for our country, Great Britain, to be a strong independent proposition and a global player, our relationship with the European Union needs to fundamentally change. As British citizens who participate at every level of British life, we believe a vote to Leave, is a vote to regain our sovereignty and independence. A vote to leave allows us to make our own decisions for our future.
We are a cross-party and non-partisan campaign and we believe this is an essential issue that affects each and every one of us regardless of our political affiliations. If you agree with what we stand for, sign up to the campaign below to support us and find out about our latest activities.
