The Ahmadiyya Muslim Association, whose East London members worship at East Ham’s Baitul Ahad Mosque in Tudor Road, is renowned for its anti-terror work and the motto “love for all, hatred for none”.
In a letter to the government, president of the Newham branch, Basharat Ahmad, has spoken of the bigotry he still faces in the UK, despite his community settling here to escape hatred in Pakistan.
“Our community has faced severe persecution and violence in other countries, most notably Pakistan,” he said.
“We have been seeing signs of increasing extremism in the UK and have been alerting government and the authorities of our concerns for 30 years. The government needs to do more so extremism is not allowed to take root.”
