Scotland Yard warns Muslims against sectarian feuds after Glasgow murder
The head of Scotland Yard has warned British Muslims that attacks on a minority Islamic sect will not be tolerated amid concern over the growing sectarianism on UK streets that recently led to the murder of a British shopkeeper.
Bernard Hogan-Howe, responding to reports of crime against members of the Ahmadiyya sect, said his officers would "robustly police anyone who carries out or threatens violence or, indeed, any other crime" against the 30,000-strong Ahmadiyya community.
Disquiet over the levels of anti-Ahmadiyya sentiment prompted the Metropolitan police commissioner on Friday afternoon to make a personal visit to Britain's largest mosque, the 10,000-capacity Baitul Futuh in Morden, south London, which belongs to the Ahmadiyya community, in an attempt to reassure followers.
