Funding of Abbey Mills Mosque, London, England

In September 2006 The Guardian reported on concerns regarding funding for the Tablighi Jamaat's construction project. Documentation filed with the Charity Commission indicated that Anjuman-E-Islahul Muslimeen's annual donations were on the order of only £500,000, suggesting the need for significant extra financial support to fund the building project. Allegations were made that the project would be funded by Saudi fundamentalist groups. The allegations were based on Tablighi Jamaat's being a Deobandi Muslim organisation that has close links with the form of the religion practised by the Saudi royal family.
The Tablighi Jamaat website lists that it intends to raise the money predominantly via small donations from Muslims in the London area, that they have no links nor made contact with the Saudi royal family, and clearly states that the Tablighi Jamaat are neither actively seeking overseas money nor public money.
