The group adds: "This video is to show the world despite the negative press, stereotypes and discrimination we are burdened with we should respond with smiles and joy, not anger."


A spokesperson for the Honest Policy told BuzzFeed the group, founded in London, was anonymous not because the members want to protect their identities but because they want to inspire young Muslim activists.


He said: "We wanted to show that anyone could play a role. It's about bringing integrity and sincerity back into the Muslim community and that the message is more important than a face."

He said there were three reasons the video went viral.


"First, it's joining in on the whole Pharrell's recent Day of Happiness," he said. "We're joining in on this international movement of happiness and Pharrell encouraged people to get involved. These are sentiments that we agree with.


"Secondly, people understand that. We are Muslim, we are happy and we should be able to get involved in mainstream popular culture.


"Lastly, [the video is] very controversial. There are a minority of people who, once they got their hands on it, they did make a fuss and that helped."
