Many UK Muslims suffer rising tide of threats, assaults

Surge in anti-Muslim hate crime leaves many fearful for the future

 

As anti-Muslim hate crime in the UK surges many British Muslims are living with the reality of increased threats, abuse and assaults.

A string of attacks have taken place, including the deadly June 19 terrorist assault on Muslims near a north London mosque.

Finsbury Park Mosque has found itself the focus of anti-Muslim hate as it was revealed that anonymous letters sent in the two weeks following Jun 19 attack threatened Muslims with more violence, according to Mohammed Kozbar, chairman of the mosque.

Kozbar told Vice News he was concerned another attack might be imminent, as one letter read: “The attack using the van was only the beginning.”
The letter openly threatened Muslims, claiming and Kozbar said the threats had been reported to the police.

TellMama, an organization measuring anti-Muslim crimes, urged mosques to report hate mail amid reports other Islamic places of worship had also received similar letters.

“We wanted to re-assure mosques that when we come across such material, and when it is reported to us, we get in touch with police partners and inform them of such activities,” it said.
