Letters fomenting hatred of Muslims

LABOUR MP Yasmin Qureshi confronted the Tories yesterday with their failure to address urgent issues of race and religion.

“Can I ask the minister if she can explain why no government minister in the last eight years has ever made a speech on the rise of anti-Muslim hatred”, enquired the Bolton South East MP of Policing Minister Victoria Atkins.

It was prompted by reports that anti-Islamic letters have been posted across the country.

Ms Qureshi said the letter calling for an attack on Muslims offers rewards of 10 points for verbal abuse, 50 points for throwing acid, 1,000 points for bombing a mosque and 2,500 points to “nuke Mecca”.

Former [Conservative] minister Anna Soubry described the letters as “an act of blatant incitement to terrorism” and called on the government to introduce a “proper legal definition of Islamophobia”.

Shadow policing minister Louise Haigh called the letters “despicable” and said they contained “insidious beliefs,’ while Ealing Central & Acton MP Rupa Huq said: “You don’t have to have taught media studies or be a Muslim to have noticed the anti-Muslim sentiment is becoming quite common in much of our tabloid printed press.”

After five forces received reports of the letters, Counter Terrorism Policing North East is leading the investigation into the messages.

A suspicious package was delivered to the parliamentary office of Labour MP Mohammad Yasin yesterday.

Emergency services were called and detectives are investigating after the package, which contained an unknown liquid, was delivered just before 1pm.

Police confirmed later that the liquid in the package, which the Bedford MP did not personally open, was non-hazardous.

No-one was injured, but two people were taken to hospital as a precaution.

Police are reportedly concerned the incident may be linked to the Punish A Muslim Day letters.
