The Muslim Council of Britain has voted to send a junior representative to the Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration on Wednesday.

After attending for the first time in 2008, the MCB resumed its boycott of the event last year.

The Secretary General of the MCB, Dr Mohamed Abdul Bari will not be attending due, according to the organization, to a diary clash. He is at the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland.

Nor will his controversial deputy Duad Abdullah or any of the organisation’s Assistant Secretary Generals.

Instead, the group will be represented by Dr Shuja Shafi, head of its chaplaincy committee.

The MCB’s spokesman, Inayat Bunglawala, has said he intends to go in his personal capacity.
