MOHAMMED KOZBAR

Islington North MP Jeremy Corbyn has admitted hate crime towards women still blights his constituency – but he is confident more victims will start to come forward.

Two victims of the Finsbury Park terror attack are still in hospital two months after a van ploughed into worshippers as they left night prayers.

It was billed as a “service of hope”, to honour the victims of the terror attack two weeks ago.

Victims of the Finsbury Park terror attack this afternoon asked: “Why do people preach hate against us?”

Some 180 people attended a minute’s silence for the victims of last week’s attack outside the Muslim Welfare House on Monday.

Four hundred people crowded outside Finsbury Park Mosque tonight for a vigil in the wake of the Seven Sisters Road terrorist attack.

Islington’s faith and community leaders responded to the Finsbury Park terrorist attack with typical defiance today, declaring: “Our community won’t be divided.”

Westminster Bridge. Manchester Arena. London Bridge. It has been a fearful three months for the UK. Even more important, then, to address that fear.

Finsbury Park Mosque was vindicated last week. It won a libel case after it was falsely labelled as a terrorist organisation. Yesterday, it held a successful, inclusive open day. The Gazette spoke to chairman Mohammed Kozbar.

Finsbury Park Mosque was this afternoon “vindicated” after wrongly being labelled a terrorist organisation by a major online database.

The chair of Islington Faiths Forum has called on people to “get outside their comfort zone” to fight hate crime in the borough.

Islington North MP Jeremy Corbyn says he will be “proud” to speak at Finsbury Park Mosque’s anti-hate crime meeting on Tuesday – as today marks one year since it was nearly blown up in an arson attack.
