Several dead in attack near London mosque


London, Jun 19 (IANS): The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) said on Monday that at least three to four persons were reportedly killed after a van struck a crowd of pedestrians in a midnight attack near a London mosque.

The police here has described it as a "major incident" and arrested one person following the incident near Finsbury Park Mosque on Seven Sisters Road, the BBC reported.

Seven others were also wounded in the attack.

Miqdaad Versi, Assistant Secretary General of the MCB, revealed on his twitter account that about three or four worshipers were hit and killed by the vehicle, Efe news reported.

The victims were leaving religious services held at the Muslim Welfare House, close to the Finsbury Park mosque when the van struck.

The Secretary General of the Council, Harun Khan, added in another tweet that the attack was "intentional".

British authorities are yet to announce the number of casualties in the attack.

The Metropolitan Police (MET) said one person has been detained at the scene. Access to the scene was cut and cordoned off by the police.

Kevin Bate, director of The London Ambulance Service (LAS) said, without elaborating on the conditions of those injured, that the paramedic services were called at 00.15 hours (local time) to attend a traffic accident on the Seven Sister Boulevard.

A later tweet said: "We have sent a number of ambulance crews, advance paramedics and specialist responses teams to the scene. An advance trauma team from London's Air Ambulance has also been dispatched by car."

    Oh god...I don't know where we lost our humanity. Nowadays everything will be based on religion, caste, skin color and humanity is dead. First of all we need to define word "Terror, Terrorism, Terrorist". What is these word? who ever create "terror" in humankind, he will be "terrorist" irrespective of his religion color or caste but we are confined to some names and religion. We need to come out of some "phobias". i.e when suspect is "Abdullah" and victim is "Chris or Shankar" then "Abdullah" is "Terrorist" and mean time if suspect is "Chris or Shankar" and victim is "Abdullah or Chris or Shakar" then "Chris or Shankar" is "mentally unbalanced, debt ridden, unemployed or depressed ..blah blah" and they are not "Terrorist". Come on guys...let's eliminate all kind of "Terrorist" who create "Terror" with humankind irrespective of their religion, caste and color. We are victim of politics and corporate lobby and we need to override these maniacs.

    Arvind,
    You are naive.
    You know about Stockholm syndrome? When you are kidnapped and you start admiring the kidnapper?
    It seems you do have traits of Stockholm syndrome. Hope you are getting my point. I will not elaborate further.

    Attacks every other day indicate that terrorists have already deeply penetrated into the crowds n these countries too do not look safe anymore; their lenient attitude n complacency has led them to this conundrum!

    U.K. is flooded with pakis and third world Arabs , Once European countries ruled the earth , liberalism has totally destroyed them . Only another hitler or Mussolini can revive Europe but this time fanatics who claim to be from the religion of peace should be gassed .

    Violence is not the answer, but unless the government does its duty to remove the threat of a foreign force operating within its borders . violence will be part of the attempt by an abandoned society to defend itself.

    They asked for it and got it. They welcomed thugs, extremists and terrorists in the name of multiculturalism. They sold their own churches to make way for mosques. Now there is blood in their streets. The devil will not sleep until UK comes down on its knees.

    This is the result of hate crimes & Islamophobia. Always there is tit for tat and the same thing is happening in our country too. We have to control the population boom from one section of the people as this could lead to violence as their teachings are negative / evil minded.

    Now is time to flush out the terrorist. Start with evil minded people not fit to live in the peaceful society especially all those who are enjoying their life on the benefits of taxpayers. If the Government cannot take action then the people should start taking measures before it blow out of proportion as they are multiplying very fast.
