The Conservatives have proved themselves a ‘foe’ of Muslim charities, event hears

The Conservative Party has proved itself a “foe” of Muslim charities after denying them a platform to speak at its conference, Sir Stephen Bubb of Acevo said yesterday.

Bubb was speaking at an event entitled Muslim Charities: Friend or Foe? which took place outside the secure zone of the conference.

The event was organised by Acevo, the infrastructure body for charity leaders, and the Muslim Charities Forum, after a planned event at the Conservative Party Conference was cancelled by the party without notice or explanation.

The cancellation came after the Daily Telegraph alleged that one of the speakers at the Acevo event had connections with terrorism.
