Campaign against anti-Muslim hate crime launched across London transport network

This post was originally published on this site

A campaign against anti-Muslim hate crime was today launched on London’s buses, trains and Tubes.

Transport for London and the Met Police will hold more than 200 community events to reassure communities that London’s public transport system is safe for everyone.

Officers will encourage reporting of hate crime on visits to the East London Mosque and Stratford bus station as well as on route 25 bus between Whitechapel and Stratford, in support of National Hate Crime Awareness Week.

Between April and June of this year reports of hate crime increased by 25 per cent with 822 cases compared to 655 last year.

Last year, TfL worked with police forces across London to launch Operation Safer Travel for All and the #WeStandTogether campaign, which encouraged victims of hate crime to report it, so action could be taken against offenders.

Sophie Linden, deputy mayor for policing and crime said: “Hate crime of any kind has no place in London, and the Mayor has been clear that the Met police should take a zero-tolerance approach to it. We all need to work together to tackle these awful crimes.”

Nozmul Hussain, chief executive officer of the East London Mosque Trust, added: “We want to send a clear message, that you do not have to be afraid and that you can report incidents discreetly to the police.

“We will never tolerate those that seek to divide us through hatred and bigotry we will always stand united.”
