Brick Lane Mosque receives threat
Different mosques in London have been receiving a stream of hate mails with threats of attack for the past few weeks. This time, a threat has been issued on the Brick Lane Jamme Masjid, formerly known as the London Jamme Masjid, which is situated in the east London. The general secretary of the mosque committee also received a death threat over phone. Tension is mounting among Bangladeshis living in Brick Lane. After receiving the threat, mosque committee members met Tower Hamlets’ Police Superintendent Peter Turner and sought increased vigilance to prevent any such attack. Peter Turner assured them saying security measures had been beefed up for all the mosques. He also suggested Muslim pilgrims not to be worried over the threat. Over the recent acid attacks, the police official said they had found no connection of hate crime, rather those were carried out centring gang wars. Brick Lane is often fondly called Banglatown by the Londoners. Since the late 20th century, it has been one of the most popular places for immigrants from Bangladesh.
