London Mayor Boris Johnson, Labour’s Harriet Harman, Keith Vaz among several senior MPs join Rehman Chishti MP’s campaign calls on Prime Minister David Cameron and BBC to use Daesh like other European countries including France….reports Asian Lite News

ISIS islamic state-arabThe Zebra woman stole BBC Question Time last week. She raised a valid point in calling a terrorist organisation as Islamist.

Rehman Chishti MP, who launched the campaign in July urging BBC and the British government to use Daesh instead of ISIS,  has sent a letter to Prime Minister David Cameron asking him to officially adopt the term Daesh when referring to the terrorist organisation to “deprive it of the legitimacy it seeks.”

He wants the Government to include the change of terminology in its comprehensive strategy to defeat the terrorist group, often referred as the so called “Islamic State”, ISIS or ISIL.

The Member of Parliament for Gillingham and Rainham has been running a campaign to rename the group, which is now being supported by 170 MPs from across the political spectrum.

Even the Arab League supported the campaign. The Secretary-General of the Arab League, Nabil Elaraby, given his support to the campaign during his last visit to London.

In his letter to the Prime Minister, Mr Chishti writes that “an important part of your strategy should be to counter Daesh’s poisonous and abhorrent ideology and propaganda, which is sucking in vulnerable individuals.”

He goes on to say: “it is appropriate for the Government to set the agenda and take the lead on this issue.  The French Government has done so by officially using the term Daesh, and we have seen that the media and others have followed.”
