Armistice Day

Today marks the armistice signed by the Allies of World War I (WWI) and Germany at Compiegne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of WWI. However, it is important to note that hostilities continued in other regions of the world, especially across parts of the old Ottoman Empire where many more thousands (mostly Muslims) perished.

Today, we remember all those who fought and died for Britain including the 400,000 Muslims who fought and the 89,000 Muslim Soldiers who died for Britain in WWI.
