LONDON (Reuters) – British counter-terrorism police have arrested a man on suspicion of sending letters entitled “Punish a Muslim Day” that urged people around the country to commit violent acts.


Antisemitism is against the law so is spreading hatred against the Muslims.  The Muslim Times is the Mecca for ideas to refute Islamophobia

The unnamed 35-year-old from Lincoln in northeast England was arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of sending letters conveying a threatening message and of sending a hoax noxious substance. He was taken to a police station for questioning.

“These letters seek to cause fear and offence among our Muslim communities. They also seek to divide us,” said Martin Snowden, head of Counter Terrorism Policing North East, in an earlier statement on the investigation.

“Yet in spite of this our communities have shown strength in their response to such hatred and in their support for each other.”

  1. So according to Somi, the only people to blame here are the Muslim again. What about the hatred being spread by these letters Somi? Do you not think that the authorities should Take action and keep order in their country. No one should have the right to take the law. Or matters in to their own hands. Spreading hate, intolerance and indifference is the first step towards divisions and group segregation’s. We need to remain united agains the terrorists and the extremists.

  2. I am happy that a lot of communities have shown love to the Muslim community after these letters were distributed, however such behaviour should not be tolerated. I hope that the police and other authorities are able to fulfill their job and create peace.

    • We have to do our part; do not provoke extremist Christian or islamophbia with Islamic symbol or dress — if Muslim just ignore that I strongly believe islamophobia will not stop hating Muslim—

      We have to our part—burqa and hijab will scare some people — it is not good at all

      • according to Somi we should also stop selling in the market: Doener Kebab, Vietnamese Spring Rolls, Indian/Pakistani Samosas, halal burgers. Only choice should be the ‘good old pork sausages’. Watching what people buy and enjoy in the open market I think Somi is a ‘loner’ in all of this. I see many good old real Europeans enjoying the various items on offer.

  3. Glad to see that despite our differences people are trying to stand up for what is right. This is what we should be doing. Being united against these people who are trying to spread hatred and racism.

  4. Most Islamic clerics, particularly the extremist Clerics around the world ( ISIS, Taliban etc) always blame others ( USA, Zionist) whereas Allah has warned People with His wisdom.

    A wise man always look at to him self if there is something wrong going on, but a foolish man always blame others. Prophet Daud.

    Therefore Muslim never correct them self, or never correct their own mistake— in other words Muslim cannot move forward, still leave behind . Very sad indeed.

    All love ❤️
