London Police Chief: Islamophobia is intolerable

 

The recent terror attacks in London have affected Muslims in the same manner as all other citizens of the city and terrorists do not discriminate between Muslims and non-Muslims in their attacks.

Targeting of Londoners on the basis of their faith was unacceptable. These views were expressed by Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick, in an interview with a local media outlet.

The police commissioner also said that hate crimes against Muslims have risen in frequency after the London Bridge and Borough Market attacks.

Figures have shown a fivefold increase in the number of Islamophobic attacks since the attack at London Bridge and a 40 percent increase in racists’ incidents, according to media reports.
