Condemnation for ‘sickening’ letters sent to Muslims

The Board of Deputies has condemned “Punish a Muslim day” letters which have been sent out around the country.

A Board of Deputies spokesperson said: “The ‘Punish a Muslim Day’ letters are sickening. We also note that potentially harmful substances and anti-Muslim letters have been sent to some Muslim MPs. Our community knows all too well how concerning it is to be on the receiving end of such threats. We will be writing to the MPs affected to express our sympathy and to make it clear that British Jews stand united with British Muslims in our opposition to racism and violence.”
