The UK's First Event To Showcase Mulsim Culture Is Happening In The West Midlands

Muslim communities come together for the Lifestyle Expo in Coventry.

The Muslim Lifestyle Expo's taking place this weekend (1 & 2 August) at the Ricoh Arena.

Organisers say David Cameron has upset many Muslims by saying people are turning to extremism because they're not integrating into British life.

Tahir Mirza is one of those behind the exhibition.

He said: "There are charities up and down the country that I've come across in the last two years, who do charity work not for Muslims in general, but for English, for Christians, for Jewish people.

"This is their home and they are integrated 100 percent.

"A lot of people are very upset at the fact that David Cameron can say this, generalise every Muslim, to say they're not integrated.

"This event welcomes everyone so we'd love to have everyone here.

"What we're trying to do because of obviously the negative side of what is happening in the UK and obviously abroad with Muslims and so on, the connotations you have with it, this just highlights the complete opposite it's a positive image."
