Following several reports of abominable hateful letters being distributed to ‘hurt Muslims’, the MCB has issued the statement below:
“This vile letter campaign sent to Muslims across the UK has caused deep distress and alarm. We welcome the action being taken by the police to investigate this matter. Sadly it is reflective of hate against Muslims which continues to manifest itself alongside the rise of the far-right. Our elected officials need to stand up and take action against Islamophobia in the same way they have taken action to counter bigotry against other groups”.
