Harun Khan, Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain said, “Here we have a man who shouted racist and Islamophobic taunts before driving into a crowd of innocent worshippers leaving the Islamic Centre after a night of peaceful prayers and devotion to God. Thankfully, no lives were lost in this cowardly attack, however it reiterates that it is so important to tackle hate, in all its forms, and create better understanding between communities in Britain today.”

“People of all faiths and communities should be able to live their lives without intimidation and fear. We would like to thank the Police for their swift action in investigating this issue and bringing the perpetrator to justice.”
