There are around 150 mosques and Islamic Centres in UK. Almost all migrant communities from Muslim-majority countries have their own mosque in the UK. There are mosques managed by Malaysian, Saudi Arabian, Pakistani, Bangladesh, Somalian etc. Their views on Islam are not always the same, depending on their cultural practices.
As the country with the largest number of Muslims in the world, and with over 3000 Indonesian Muslims in the UK, until now, Indonesia has not had its own mosque. All religious activities carried out since 2003 in the building which is primarily used for residential purposes.
As awareness of the dangers of radical Islam and intolerance has increased, more Indonesian Muslims have chosen to join IIC-London which is aligned with their Islamic beliefs.
The congregation numbers of the IIC-London is ever growing, alongside their activities. The current IIC building is no longer sufficient for the growing numbers of Indonesian Muslims.
We are now actively gathering funds in the hope to buy a larger building that has permission to host a religious community.
Unlike now, where such activities are limited, without permission to host religious communities and activities. To achieve this, in 2017 we have viewed one building which can house an Islamic Centre and mosque. The cost of the acquisition and renovation of the building is £1.6 million or equivalent to Rp 26 billion. The expansion plans of the building costing £900,000 or equivalent to Rp 14 billion bringing the total needs of funds to £2.5 million or equivalent to Rp 40 billion.
