Statement from the Mayor on Finsbury Park attack anniversary

19 June 2020

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said:


“Today marks the third anniversary of the Finsbury Park terror attack. We remember Makram Ali and the innocent people who were injured as a result of this mindless attack.


“We are all entitled to feel safe in our place of worship, and I know I speak for all Londoners when I say that the reaction of the community to this horrific act inspired us all. Terrorists seek to divide us and to fuel fear. I have been so proud to see how our great city has shown time and time again that we stand united in defiance of these attacks.


“London will always celebrate the diversity that some seek to destroy, and our values will always be stronger than the hatred of extremists.”
