MOHAMMED KOZBAR

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.

A year ago, Jeremy Corbyn promised Islington North ‘won’t be forgotten’ after he was elected Labour leader. Twelve months on, James Morris asks community leaders across his constituency whether he has kept his word.

Four hundred people descended on Highbury Fields yesterday morning as Islington MPs Jeremy Corbyn and Emily Thornberry gave rapturously-received speeches against hate crime.
