Dawatul Islam UK & Eire is a Muslim organisation based in London. The group was founded in 1978[1] from the Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan-originated UK Islamic Mission to cater to East Bengali Muslims in Britain after the founding of Bangladesh in 1971. In 1990, the group Islamic Forum Europe broke off from Dawatul Islam, reportedly over Bangladeshi regional differences.[2] The group is now based at another mosque, Darul Ummah, Bigland Street, Tower Hamlets.[3][4]
