On Polling Day, Friends of Muslim Community Organiser Suliman Gani Launch Petition Demanding Apology from David Cameron for Making False Allegations Against Him

5.5.16

Muslim community organiser Suliman Gani (left), who is seeking a public apology from the Prime Minister, David Cameron, who has made false allegations about him supporting Islamic State (IS), when nothing could be further from the truth.Please sign and share the petition, calling for David Cameron to apologise to Suliman Gani, which currently has over 1,100 signatures.

Yesterday evening, friends of Suliman Gani launched a petition on Change.org, urging Prime Minister David Cameron to retract allegations he made two weeks ago about Muslim community organiser Suliman Gani. At Prime Minister’s Questions, David Cameron called him a supporter of Islamic State (IS), when nothing could be further from the truth. Mr Gani has, in fact, appeared at an event called ‘The Evils of Isis’, at which he condemned their actions, and has repeatedly explained how their actions are un-Islamic.

The Prime Minister’s false allegations were part of an effort to undermine Sadiq Khan prior to today’s London Mayoral elections, which also involved Zac Goldsmith, who called Mr. Gani “one of the most repellent figures in this country”, while failing to remember that he had a photo taken with Mr. Gani at an event last year, and also failing to recognise that Mr. Gani has long expressed support for and interest in the Conservative Party.

Today, as Londoners go to the polls to vote for the capital’s next Mayor, please sign and share the petition, and please vote wisely.

Mr. Gani’s friends, who include the campaigners Joanne MacInnes and Joy Hurcombe, the neurologist and campaigner Dr. David Nicholl, the author Anna Perera and myself, call on David Cameron to “retract his words and issue a full and unreserved apology in the House of Commons at the earliest opportunity,” and remind him of the code of conduct for all government ministers, including himself, which he updated last October. Paragraph 1.2.c states: “It is of paramount importance that ministers give accurate and truthful information to Parliament, correcting any inadvertent error at the earliest opportunity. Ministers who knowingly mislead Parliament will be expected to offer their resignation.”

I first wrote about the various slanders against Suliman Gani two weeks ago, in an article entitled, David Cameron, Zac Goldsmith and Andrew Neil Owe Suliman Gani An Apology for Calling Him “Repellent” and an IS Supporter, which was very well received. Since then, others have become involved in challenging the vile allegations made by David Cameron and Zac Goldsmith; in particular, the journalist Peter Oborne, formerly the chief political commentator of the Daily Telegraph, from which he resigned last year.

Peter Oborne is one of the few establishment figures to tackle racism and Islamophobia where he sees them being used cynically by politicians for political gain — or even as a genuine manifestation of their own biased worldview — and on Monday he published an open letter on Middle East Eye entitled, Open letter to Downing Street: You still owe Suliman Gani an apology, which is well worth reading.

At the same time, I was editing a petition for Suliman Gani that was first drafted by the campaigner Joy Hurcombe, and which was launched yesterday evening by another campaigning friend, Joanne MacInnes. It had been another busy day, as David Cameron repeated his lies about Suliman Gani at Prime Minister’s Questions, and Mr. Gani himself got a few high-profile opportunities to answer back — on ITV News, where he said, “I wish I could sue the Prime Minister,” and on Sky News. Also check out the Daily Mirror‘s coverage.

The text of the petition is below:

David Cameron must apologise to Suliman Gani

On 20th April, during Prime Minister’s Question Time, David Cameron made a damaging and unfounded allegation about Suliman Gani, a British citizen, a teacher and broadcaster, and the former imam of Tooting Islamic Centre, which we call on him to retract.

Seeking to undermine Labour’s Mayoral candidate Sadiq Khan, he said that Khan had shared platforms with extremists, and proceeded to name Suliman Gani, describing him as a supporter of Islamic State (IS). Nothing could be further from the truth. Suliman Gani is a man of peace and a campaigner for human rights who has spoken out publicly against the evils of IS and has regularly engaged in events designed to bring different faiths together.

This personal, disgraceful attack on a well-known and widely respected figure in the Muslim community was made using parliamentary privilege and if expressed outside Parliament would be regarded as defamatory and libellous.

It has caused great distress to Suliman Gani and his family, as well as the many members of the Muslim community and other communities who know him. The Prime Minister must follow the code of conduct for all government ministers, including himself, which he updated last October. Paragraph 1.2.c states: “It is of paramount importance that ministers give accurate and truthful information to Parliament, correcting any inadvertent error at the earliest opportunity. Ministers who knowingly mislead Parliament will be expected to offer their resignation.”

The Prime Minister must retract his words and issue a full and unreserved apology in the House of Commons at the earliest opportunity.

Please support this appeal from friends of Suliman Gani.

    As Londoners vote for a new Mayor, here’s my latest article, promoting the petition on Change.org that was launched last night (and which I helped to write), calling on David Cameron to publicly apologise to Muslim community leader Suliman Gani for falsely claiming that he is a supporter of Islamic State (IS), when nothing could be further from the truth. This has been part of a dirty smear cmapaign designed to undermine Sadiq Khan, but it has damaged the reputation of a peaceful man (Suliman), and hopefully it will damage the Tories in the polls.

  19. Andy Worthington says...

    Thanks, Pippa. Just trying to do what’s right. What annoys me about the Tories almost as much as their cruelty and stupidity is the way they have so thoroughly embraced the black propaganda techniques of Lynton Crosby, always appealing to people’s worst instincts. It is their fault that there is so much hatred in Britain today. They are incapable of providing genuine leadership.

  20. Andy Worthington says...

    We now have exactly 1,300 signatures. Please help us get to 1,500 asap!

    Signed and shared… the government never learns and has been caught out before in a Judicial Review for “misinformation, flawed thinking”… and on it goes! Can we believe anything governments say?

  22. Andy Worthington says...

    Thanks, Carol. I’m hoping the Tories’ dirty game in London backfires on them. They deserve it. They must have been a bit humiliated to find that Suliman was going to vote for them, and realising that they were probably going to lose many conservative (small ‘c’) Muslim votes because of their racism.

    I think we’d better not hold our breaths for the apology, Katrina, but it is important to make a stand. It is disgraceful how the Tories made a decision to play with a man’s reputation in a dirty little Islamophobic effort to undermine Sadiq Khan.

  29. Andy Worthington says...

    Just trying to round up everyone who dislikes the way in which Cameron lies when told to, David, as part of the Tories’ relentless and depressing black propaganda machine. As I have said elsewhere today, I hold them personally responsible for helping to foster the various petty hatreds that permeate Britain today like a virus – the racism, the Islamophobia, the anti-immigrant sentiment, the anti-EU sentiment, the targeting of the unemployed, the disabled, the assault on social housing, the attacks on our hospitals, our doctors, our schools, our teachers. I am so very much hoping they lose London.

  30. Andy Worthington says...

    If I can just mention another petition, can you please sign and share “Britain must not turn its back on child refugees in Europe,” which has 69,776 signatures, so just over 30,000 signatures are still needed asap to make it eligible for Parliamentary debate. I understand that the revised amendment to the Immigration Bill that it supports, after the Tories refused to support accepting child refugees, goes back to the House on May 9: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/128833

    I’m just crossing my fingers that we get the Tories out of London and hopefully elsewhere, David – and I’m so fed up with the manufactured anti-Semitic scandal that’s supposed to unseat Jeremy Corbyn. I was away at the weekend at a wedding in Scotland, and relieved that I was able to get away from the endless headlines and earnest presenters on supposedly rational news channels (hello, BBC) pretending that there was some sort of anti-Semitic scandal going on, as though there’s no dirt on the Tories.

  44. Andy Worthington says...

    Yes, we all need to be vigilant, Mohammed. My guess is that the slander will immediately stop now the election’s over, but that’s why we need to keep the pressure on Cameron with this petition.

    We made it to 2,000. It’s currently on 2.006. Next stop: 2,500. Please keep signing and sharing today, in the run-up to the announcement of the results in the London Mayoral election. And check out Andrew Boff, leader of the Tories on the GLA, laying into Goldsmith’s campaign. He said the negative campaigning about Muslims “was effectively saying that people of conservative religious views are not to be trusted and you should not share a platform with them. That’s outrageous.” He added that the campaign had “done real damage” and had “blown up bridges” the Conservatives had built with London’s Muslim communities.

  47. Andy Worthington says...

    2,400 signatures now. Please keep signing and sharing. I thought the Tories would drop this as soon as the election was over, but defence secretary Michael Fallon was on the Today programme this morning, where he repeated the false allegation that Suliman Gani is an IS supporter, and specifically mentioned Daesh by name. Mr. Fallon can expect a call from lawyers soon, for defamation.

    UPDATE: Here’s Peter Oborne’s latest article on David Cameron’s failure to apologise for calling Muslim community organiser Shaykh Suliman Gani​ a supporter of Islamic State (IS), which couldn’t be further from the truth. At the weekend, Mr. Gani was threatened in the street. As Peter Oborne says, “Words matter. Especially when they are uttered by the prime minister.”
    http://www.middleeasteye.net/columns/david-cameron-has-moral-duty-set-record-straight-suliman-gani-1793321227

  67. Andy Worthington says...

    Not only was Suliman Gani threatened, but also another Tory joined the lies – defence secretary Michael Fallon, who told the Today programme on Saturday morning that Mr. Gani was a supporter of Islamic state, or, as he put it, unlike his colleagues, Daesh. Fallon took his lead from Andrew Neil without checking his facts, and his decision to name Daesh was a step on from No. 10’s cynical claim that there was, essentially, no difference between speaking approvingly on an Islamic State, i.e. a state run according to Islamic law (as Mr. Gani is alleged to have done) and speaking approvingly of Islamic State (IS) aka Daesh, the terrorising force currently wreaking havoc in the Middle East. Fallon has been threatened with legal action, as he doesn’t have the Parliamentary privilege Cameron depended on when he was delivering his lies in Parliament.

    UPDATE – So here’s the latest development:
    “David Cameron offers half-apology to Imam he accused of supporting ISIS,” as the Daily Mirror describes it, accurately:
    “In a half-apology, sneaked out at 7.30pm tonight, the Prime Minister said he was referring to reports that Suliman Gani, a Conservative Party supporter, supported the concept of an Islamic State.” The Mirror added: “The Prime Minister is clear this does not mean Mr Ghani supports the organisation Daesh and he apologises to him for any misunderstanding.”
    The distinction between supporting the concept of an Islamic State and the Islamic State organisation currently terrorising the Middle East is huge, and is one that, it seems to me, David Cameron deliberately ignored to play a dirty political game.
    The half-apology followed an apology this afternoon by defence secretary Michael Fallon, who had called Mr. Gani a Daesh supporter on the Today programme on BBC Radio 4 on Saturday. He blamed the BBC, having taken his information from Andrew Neil, who had falsely accused Mr. Gani of being an IS supporter during a London Mayoral debate. The BBC had already apologised for Andrew Neil’s comments, but Fallon blamed the BBC for him not doing his own homework.

    My expectations are as low as possible, Javier. Not only is he in charge of the most disgusting and disgraceful government in living memory, but he called a referendum on the EU because he was too much of a coward to take on critics in his own party (and UKIP), and now he has been caught telling lies about a Muslim community leader in a feeble effort to keep Sadiq Khan our of City Hall that has done nothing but alienate large numbers of Muslims, many of whom had, up until this point, been ideologically inclined to support the Tories.
