As anti-Muslim hate crime in the U.K. surges many British Muslims are living with the reality of increased threats, abuse and assaults.
A string of attacks -- even including the use of corrosive acid -- have taken place, including the deadly June 19 terrorist assault on Muslims near a north London mosque.
Finsbury Park Mosque has found itself the focus of anti-Muslim hate as it was revealed that anonymous letters sent in the two weeks following Jun 19 attack -- in which one man, 51-year-old Makram Ali, died -- threatened Muslims with more violence, according to Mohammed Kozbar, chairman of the mosque.
Kozbar told Vice News he was concerned another attack might be imminent, as one letter read: “The attack using the van was only the beginning.”
The letter openly threatened Muslims, claiming “the fun will continue this August”.
“There will be rivers of blood flowing down the streets -- I will make sure of this. None of you vermin will survive. I mean who would survive being gassed, or beheaded, or blown up,’” the letter read.
Kozbar said the threats had been reported to the police.
TellMama, an organization measuring anti-Muslim crimes, urged mosques to report hate mail amid reports other Islamic places of worship had also received similar letters.
“We wanted to re-assure mosques that when we come across such material, and when it is reported to us, we get in touch with police partners and inform them of such activities,” it said.
