Muslim Council of Britain Responds to Streatham Attack
Harun Khan, Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain, comments on the terror attack in Streatham on Sunday 2nd February:
“Our thoughts are with the victims of the incident in Streatham, and our solidarity is with the people of that area. Streatham is a vibrant community where Muslims find common cause with fellow residents on a range of issues. Only recently, the people of Streatham came together to speak out against the vandalism against a local mosque.
“We must continue to celebrate this strong community spirit, whilst also remaining vigilant. We encourage everyone to report any hate crime and suspicious activity to the police to help keep our communities safe.
“Now, as we wait further details from the police about what appears to be a terror-related attack, we stand firm with the people of Streatham against division and hatred from all quarters.”
