Motion text

That this House recognises the excellent work that Muslim community groups and individuals carry out across West Yorkshire and the work that many mosques engage in to ensure that young worshippers are protected from extremists who seek to influence them to do harm to themselves and others; considers that the diversity of communities across West Yorkshire is a strength and not a weakness; further recognises that countless young people of all backgrounds across West Yorkshire are committed to building a united positive future for themselves and others; and welcomes the fact that, across West Yorkshire, communities are united in condemning violence and work together harmoniously and effectively throughout Yorkshire as a whole.
