An eyewitness has expressed how the Muslim community does not feel safe after the Finsbury Park Mosque attack
Prior to today, the UK has been hit by three terror attacks within three months, two in London and one in Manchester.
The most recent attack is different. This attack has been purposefully aimed against innocent Muslims outside of a Mosque.
According to one eyewitness, the Islamic community no longer feels safe after a spate of terrorist activity.
The Express reported
“Witness Adhil claimed on Sky News that he believed the incident was a response to the London Bridge terror attack two weeks.
He said: “It doesn’t take anyone to work out what has happened. This is blatantly a response to what has happened in London Bridge.
“But, I would like to say that the response time by the police was ridiculous.
“It took the police one hour to come. I don’t understand why it took them so long to come.
“When the London Bridge attack happened it was a six-minute response time, when Lee Rigby’s attack happened it was a four minute response time and on top of that, the ambulance response time was ten minutes.
“Today the ambulance took 45 minutes to come.”
Adhil claimed the attack had left his community feeling scared. He said: “people have died today and as Muslims we don’t feel safe going to the mosque anymore, we are being victimised.
“The Muslim community, which are messaging each other on social media saying stick together, be vigilant. Why do we have to feel this way to go to the mosque and feel we can’t walk freely to the mosque.
“We feel victimised, no one feels safe anymore.””
Hate crimes and tensions are increasing due to the spike in recent terrorist activity.
I see no signs of this stopping, I hope it does, but right now there is no light at the end of the tunnel.
