The article “Seeking Allah in the Midlands” (May 24) fails to mention the main cause of many British women converting to Islam— their disillusionment with the western culture. It is difficult to find solace and peace in the excessive permissiveness of the western culture. Islam offers them dignity and honour.

British society is growing more and more permissive. Islam stands for moral values. Women in Islam feel protected and hence the present trend.
