Answered By:

Whilst l understand your concerns about the danger of community cohesion being threatened by global tensions, l am confident that our well-founded reputation for religious tolerance and the excellent interfaith relations that exist in Harrow and across London can withstand these threats. That said, we cannot be complacent and l have asked the MPS to consider hate crimes and public safety to be a priority.
