Latest news

    The Muslim Council of Britain has issued a statement following the Finsbury Park attack, urging the UK authorities to step up security at mosques “as a matter of urgency” in light of “the hugely worrying growth in Islamophobia.”

    “Over the past weeks and months, Muslims have endured many incidents of Islamophobia, and this is the most violent manifestation to date,” the council said, adding that, based on eyewitness accounts, the attacker appeared to be “motivated by Islamophobia.”
