Board of Deputies condemns hate attack on Islamic centre

Board of Deputies Vice President Edwin Shuker has condemned a hate attack on an Islamic centre in North-West London.

He said: “We denounce the attack on worshippers outside an Islamic Centre in Cricklewood. The rise in anti-Muslim hostility should alarm all of us. According to Tell MAMA, 2017 saw a rise of 16.3% in reports of anti-Muslim incidents, making that the highest number ever recorded. Similarly, Jewish communities have also suffered record levels of antisemitic attacks in 2017 and 2018, according to CST. An attack on one community is an attack on all of us, and the Jewish community stands in solidarity with Muslims as we challenge hate together.”
