    What kind of a stupid scumbag does a cowardly thing like that?

    Would it be possible to get an interview with someone from the mosque? I’d be really interested to hear about how they are dealing with this incident and how it affects their sense of being part of the local community, but also whether they have had any positive support locally as well? I’m really keen to show my support to Brixton’s various Muslim communities but as a non-Muslim I’d like their thoughts on how I can best do this.

      Hi Linda, yes it would be great. We’ve been talking to someone by email tonight, and hopefully will be able to speak to someone in person tomorrow and get something online tomorrow evening.
      If anyone else from the mosque is reading this and would like to get in touch – please email us on tim@brixtonblog.com or call 0207 737 5417.
