British Muslim boxing champ Amir Khan has called on British Muslims to stand against extremism
British Muslim boxing champ Amir Khan has called on British Muslims to stand against extremism.
Khan’s comments came just days after a Sky News British Muslims Poll found that 40% of British Muslims partly blame police and MI5 for radicalizing young people.
Khan became the WBA World light-welterweight champion on 18 July 2009, becoming Britain’s third-youngest world champion after Naseem Hamed and Herbie Hide.
Being a Muslim of Pakistani origin, Khan proudly said that following Islam has helped him with his sport, giving him inspiration to pursue his goals.
