Brown’s labeling to Indian nationals unfortunate
Prime Minister Gordon Brown said he had asked Britain 's new counter-terrorism minister to carry out an immediate review of recruitment to Britain 's National Health Service, where nearly 40 percent of doctors are foreign-trained.
Indian doctors seeking better job opportunities in the West fear they may be unfairly targeted after the British government said it would review how it recruited foreign doctors following last week's bomb plot.
After 7/7 Indians including Hindus faced attacks
This was happened in the past a fter 7/7. At that time there was an increase in attacks on Hindus because of mistaken identity. On January 4, 2006 The Independent reported, "A rising number of Hindus are the victims of hate crimes, partly as a backlash from the London suicide bombings, Britain's largest Hindu organisation has said. A telephone hotline to report attacks is being set up to help the 700,000 Hindus in this country. Ramesh Kallidai, secretary general of the Hindu Forum of Britain, said 'hate crime' incidents ranged from verbal and physical attacks on worshippers to graffiti and vandalism at Hindu temples. In one of the most recent attacks, paving slabs with swastikas scratched on them were thrown through the windows at a hall in Basingstoke, Hampshire, while a religious meeting was taking place. Mr Kallidai said there was evidence that Hindus and their temples had been targeted after the July 7 bomb attacks in London, even though the terrorists had been Muslim... Mr Kallidai said: 'After 7/7 there was an increase in attacks on Hindus because of mistaken identity. For almost 90 per cent of the south Asian community you cannot tell which religion a particular person belongs to.' The 'hate crime' hotline, due to start later this year, could also incorporate a service aimed at young people and is modelled on the success of the Muslim Youth Helpline. The introduction of the service will coincide with a campaign to encourage Hindus to report hate crime." This happened to Indian Muslims in U K also.

A giant mosque for 2012 Olympic
A giant mosque a £300 million project of Tablighi Jamaat that will hold 40,000 worshippers is being proposed beside the 2012 Olympic complex in Newham. The Asia-Pacific Foundation, a London-based policy assessment organization, takes a darker view. In a report on Tablighi Jamaat, the organization's chief executive, M.J. Gohel, said that a variety of people who have passed through the organization's mosques have gone on to commit terrorist acts, including Mohammad Siddique Khan, one of the suicide attackers in the deadly London transport bombings in July. Tablighi involvement in future terrorist activities at home and abroad are not a matter of conjecture; it is a tragic and definite certainty, Gohel said.
Islam's growth in the West
Many believe Islam's growth in the West is exemplified by British converts such as Birt, the 38-year-old son of the BBC's former director-general, who made headlines when he turned to Islam 16 years ago just four years after pop star Cat Stevens sensationally announced he had become Yusuf Islam.
In recent years, former British cabinet minister Frank Dobson's son became Joe Ahmed Dobson and respected Cambridge academic Timothy Winter took the name of Abdul Hakim Murad.
Winter became Abdul Hakim Murad. As a renowned Islamic scholar and translator of several Arabic works, including Imam Al Bayhagi's Seventy-Seven Branches of the Faith, Winter is as far away as anyone can be from shoe-bomber Richard Reid, 7/7 bomber Germaine Lindsay and trans-Atlantic airline conspirators Don Stewart-Whyte and Brian Young, the other white and mixed-race converts to Islam who have burst upon the dismayed consciousness of Britain and the wider world.
