Muslim worshippers leaving a mosque in South London were attacked by a group of 12 people last Thursday. A 67-year-old man, who was accompanied by his 5-year-old granddaughter, was severely injured.
The Arab-American Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) contacted the British authorities, asking that they apply the maximum punishment on those involved in the assaults.
Kareem Shora, ADC Executive Director, confirmed that a comprehensive legal investigation is being conducted by British Authorities.
In his letter to the British Ambassador, Shora wrote that “we are assured that British authorities will use all available legal means to classify this as a hate-motivated attack and report it to the appropriate agencies monitoring anti-Muslim intolerance including the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) at the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).”
