Press & Publicity
Birmingham Central Mosque is nationally known for reference and advocacy of Muslims and Islamic Issues. The mosque’s congregation and staff have been the subject of numerous television and news features in recent years. Much of the media focuses on the mosque’s involvement in national and international human rights and political issues as well as the mosque’s inter-faith alliances. Of course, in recent times media attention has been the result of international current affairs but generally the mosque has worked very closely with the media since its inception to represent the Muslim community of Birmingham as a diverse and united people.
The BBC recently made two documentaries based on Birmingham Central Mosque including a Panorama special and the mosque has played a leading role in newspapers, television and radio on matters pertaining to the wars on Afghanistan and Iraq along with other social, political and religious issues. We are regularly featured on local and national news related programmes and documentaries and are proud to be one of Britain’s most prominent and well recognised mosques.
The Birmingham Central Mosque is and has always been open to media personnel and programme-makers wishing to share our work with the wider community. We have a very good relationship with local, national and community press and hope that we can use this standing for the purpose of sharing our faith and worship to help raise Islamic awareness in Britain.
