It is never acceptable for people in London to face an attack on the basis of their faith. Reducing Hate Crime is a key priority and MOPAC will be launching a Hate Crime Reduction Strategy this autumn. I am always extremely concerned about any incidents of hate crime and I am watching this issue closely.

 

It is also important that people feel confident to report all incidents of hate crime when they occur.
