Police on guard at Ahmadiyya mosque in Morden after threats made to burn it down

This is Local London: by Khaleda Rahman.

Police deployed officers to guard Morden mosque yesterday after extreme racist threats appeared on social media sites calling for it to be burnt to the ground.

The threats follow the murder of 25-year-old Drummer Lee Rigby by two men on Wednesday (May 22) in Woolwich which led to about 250 English Defence League (EDL) supporters rioting outside Woolwich Arsenal station.

The Baitul Futuh Mosque, in London Road, is the largest in western Europe and was targeted on a Facebook page named True British Patriots.
