UK Muslims on challenging extremism and radicalisation

4 November 2013 Last updated at 11:30 GMT

Four in five British people want a ban on the wearing of the niqab in public places, but the UK government looks unlikely to bring in legislation.

Giles Dilnot reports on how British Muslim communities confront these issues, days after the World Islamic Economic Forum was hosted for the first time in London.
