LONDON (Sputnik) — British Prime Minister David Cameron called on Muslims to stand together against extremists’ conspiracy against Western values on Monday.

Earlier in the day, Cameron was delivering a keynote speech on tackling extremism in Birmingham, the United Kingdom.

"This is the home we have built together. Whether you are Muslim, Hindu, Jewish, Christian or Sikh whether you were born here or born abroad we can all feel part of this country — and we must all now come together and stand up for our values with confidence and pride," he said.

In his speech, Cameron outlined a strategy to defeat the threat pose by Islamist extremism in Britain that included such measures as authorizing parents to seize passports of children they suspect of planning to leave the Britain for Syria, empowering the communications watchdog Ofcom to tackle foreign media broadcasting extremist messages and promote social integration in schools.

"We should together challenge the ludicrous conspiracy theories of the extremists. The world is not conspiring against Islam; the security services aren’t behind terrorist attacks; our new Prevent duty for schools is not about criminalising or spying on Muslim children," he emphasized.

The so-called Prevent duty initiative charged UK schools with legal duty to prevent pupils from being drawn into terrorism. The regulation introduced on July 1 charged school staff to monitor and assess the possibilities of pupils being drawn into extremist ideologies.

UK Scotland Yard figures estimate at least 700 British citizens have gone to Iraq and Syria to fight alongside militants, including the Islamic State extremist group. Britain's intelligence services claim the actual number may be closer to 2,000
