As part of their Stop Islamophobia Week campaign, the Muslim Public Affairs Committee (MPACUK) took to the streets of the EDL’s heartland, culminating with the local police commander apologising for failing to protect two local Muslims who were hospitalised after an earlier attack by the cretinous EDL.
While Muslims stay pacified sitting in comfort in their masajids debating about the benefits of fasting in the month of Shaban, these handful of Muslims practice what Islam teaches, by standing up to their oppressor and demanding justice.
MPACUK, The Akh salutes you!
The following is taken from the MPACUK website:
Since January, the Beacontree Heath Islamic Society has been harassed by the EDL, so much so that the mosque has not been able to open for prayers.
On 18th June, two Muslim men were attacked by up to 40 EDL members resulting in one of the men having his cheekbone permanently broken.
On both occasions, the mosque has not taken any substantial action due to fear of a reaction from the EDL and the Police have only conducted the most basic of investigations and have not pursued this case the way it should have been.
MPACUK has been disgusted by the Police’s action, or rather their lack of action, and so on Saturday 9th July organised a demonstration from the mosque to Chadwell Heath Police Station to demand to know why they are not taking more effective action against extremist groups like the EDL and also how can they could justify not having enough Police officers on the ground considering that the EDL have been known to target this area over the last 6 months.
We need more action against the EDL and hold the Police to account for not doing more – join our campaign to stop Islamophobia.
