Mo Ansar On Christmas: Past and Present

I read with some surprise this about Mo Ansar on Christmas, in a recent article:

Christmas is an important date on the calendar of social and political commentator and charity executive Mohammed Ansar, who lives with his family near Winchester.

And he is keen to encourage other Muslims to engage with seasonal activities.

“As someone who works with the Muslim community both locally and nationally, I’d like to encourage people to feel comfortable in getting more involved with festive activities,” says Mohammed, a chief executive for a charity which acts as an umbrella organisation for local Muslim groups.

“You don’t lose your own faith identity by joining in with the non-religious, cultural aspects of Christmas.” [Source]

Is this the same Mo Ansar who said Muslims celebrating Christmas would be “enforced assimilation” when Baroness Warsi said that in 2012?

  

Merry Christmas to one and all!
