Army to woo British Muslims
The ART of WAR...
Military bosses plan to send serving Muslims back into their communities to encourage others to join the fight in Afghanistan.
General Sir David Richards, Commander-in-Chief of Land Forces, revealed the move in an interview with an internal Ministry of Defence journal.
He said: “There is an appreciation on our part that the Army would be better getting more Muslims into our ranks.”
He added: “I am looking to see if some of our Muslim troops can go back into their communities to act as extra recruiters.”
