Board of Deputies President: ‘Our hearts go out to Muezzin following stabbing’

Board of Deputies of British Jews President Marie van der Zyl has reacted to today’s stabbing attack on the Muezzin at Regent’s Park Mosque during prayers.

Marie said: “Horrific news of a stabbing at Regent’s Park Mosque. Our hearts go out to the Muezzin, his family and the Muslim community, and we pray for his swift recovery. It appears that this may be another far-right terrorist attack. We call on leaders in Britain and the world to stamp out this heinous wave of racist hate that has re-emerged. We must learn lessons from history, stop the spread of intolerance, and give it no quarter in our politics, media or society.”
