London mosque attack: Newspapers are spreading hate, warns Muslim of Council of Britain
Posted on June 20th, 2017


Muslim leaders have spoken out against the media for fuelling Islamophobia, following a deadly attack on a north London mosque.

In the hours after a van was driven into worshippers as they finished late night prayers, local leaders and members of the Muslim community warned about rising anti-Muslim sentiment.

Hatred against Muslims is unacceptable as well,” Miqdaad Versi, assistant secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain, told Sky News.


May says Finsbury Park mosque attack justifies her internet crackdown

We have national newspapers spreading hate and talking about how less Islam is the answer to terrorism that we face right now.

These people are spreading hate against Muslims and people might be responding to that hate, talking about less Islam, and [something like this attack] may be the result.”

He added: We cannot have this happening. We have had a number of incidents against Muslim communities. Hate crime has gone up considerably according to the Metropolitan Police, according to the Mayor of London, according to many third party sources as well.”

Mr Versi did not name any particular publications.

Social media users were quick to tweet examples of recent headlines in national newspapers that appeared to portray Muslims in a negative light.

Talking on the Daily Sunday Politics, Mr Versi praised the Government for taking the attack seriously”.

    The UK apologists for Tamil terrorism in Sri Lanka are now being accused by those who DEMAND the imposition of Sharia Law in the UK of HATE MONGERING!

    The people of the UK are WAKING UP to the unpleasant realization that they also cannot defend themselves against those who harbour terrorists without being accused of hate mongering and racial/religious discrimination!

    Welcome, UK to the Brave New World of double-faced terrorism and wailing victims that you yourself helped to create by demonizing countries such as Sri Lanka fighting terrorism!


    We Sri Lankans have been there bedevilled by Tamil terrorism, and suffered the same at your hands as their bleeding-heart defenders!

    For whom does your hearts bleed now? For the Muslim terrorists or the innocent Britons who lie dead in the streets!
