INSIDE STORY

Five years on, how have the attacks and government reaction impacted British society?
Last Modified: 08 Jul 2010 17:02 GMT



It has been five years since 52 people were killed and nearly 800 injured by a series of suicide bombings in London.
 
The bombers were four young Muslim men - all Britons - with apparently ordinary lives.
 
In the wake of the attacks the then Blair government introduced a number of new security measures - as well as what it called an outreach programme aimed at understanding and integrating the country's Muslim community.  
 
But what impact has this had on British society and its Muslim community in particular?

Joining the programme are Houriya Ahmed, a researcher at the Centre for Social Cohesion, Tobias Feakin, the head of Homeland Security Capabilities at the Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies, and Azzam Tamimi, the director of the Institute of Islamic Thought.

This episode of Inside Story aired on Wednesday, July 7, 2010.
