Muslim groups accused the British government of copying the language of the far right Monday and of stoking Islamophobia after ministers wrote to imams asking them to explain to Muslims how Islam is compatible with being British.In a letter to over 1,000 imams last Friday, Eric Pickles, the minister for local government and communities, asked them to explain to Muslims how Islam can be "part of British identity," arguing they had a duty to do more to fight extremism and root out anyone preaching hatred.In the letter, Pickles said imams needed to help the government do something it couldn't achieve on its own: explain how Islamic faith can be part of British identity.
