The UK Nirmul Committee which is celebrating its 25th anniversary of campaign against sectarianism and extremism was formed to support the campaign against racism, fascism, extremism and fundamentalism. The UK Nirmul Committee also works with the Bengali youth to familiarize them with their cultural heritage. It also works to strengthen the links between the anti-fascist, anti-racist and progressive groups.
