The Board of Deputies has expressed its solidarity with the Altrincham and Hale Mosque in Greater Manchester after a stabbing attack against Dr Nasser Kurdy, a worshipper there.
Dr Kurdy is said to have heard Islamophobic comments during the attack and Greater Manchester Police are treating the incident as a hate crime.
Board of Deputies Public Affairs Director Phil Rosenberg, who has worked with another member of the mosque on community relations, wrote to say that Dr Kurdy “and the whole community are in our thoughts and prayers. These terrorists may wish to sow division, but they only succeed in bringing us closer together.”
