Muslim leaders ‘accept Robinson apology’

A delegation of Northern Ireland’s Muslim leaders has accepted an apology from Peter Robinson over comments he made about followers of the religion.

The first minister had told the Irish News on Wednesday he would not trust Muslims involved in violence or devotees of Sharia law.

But he said he would “trust them to go to the shops” for him.

A meeting was called between Mr Robinson and members of Belfast’s Islamic Centre to discuss the fall out.

Dr Raied Al-Wazzan said, a spokesman for the centre said: “We accepted the apology in private and for us that was a sincere apology and we accepted it.”
