A YOUTUBE video featuring Muslims in the city dancing along to Pharrell William’s hit single Happy has had 1.5 million views.

The video, entitled Happy British Muslims, features three girls dancing along Parks Road. It was directed by a Muslim group called The Honesty Project.

Dr Hojjat Ramzy, director of the Oxford Islamic Information Centre, said: “They are trying to integrate music into Islam that has been accepted in the mainstream.”
