Following the murderous attacks on 2 Mosques in Christchurch in New Zealand on the 15th March, The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan would like to invite Mosque Leaders, volunteers and associates linked with the many Mosques in London to a conference dedicated to discussing the protective measures that are and could be put in place around Mosques and other places of worship.
The event will have senior members of the Mayor’s leadership team and members of the Metropolitan Police address the audience. There will be workshops and members of civil society that will provide insights that could address the risk of an attack.
“Like so many Londoners and people around the world, I am heartbroken by the news from Christchurch, New Zealand. Many innocent people, have been horrifically targeted in a terrorist attack in mosques because of their faith. My heart goes out to all the victims, their grieving families and friends. Londoners stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of Christchurch. I want to reassure Muslim communities in London that we will do everything possible to support and protect you.”
Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan
