Mosque chairman Abdul Choudhuri, pictured with Dr Mohammad Nawaz, said a “few twisted minded people,” who are labelled as Muslims, become involved in terrorist activities, such as the recent attack at Westminster.

Mr Choudhuri added: “It is indeed very sad that the actions of a few criminal people has an undesirable effect on many Muslims.

“Our messages through our various programmes is to make non-Muslims aware that Islam is a religion of peace, harmony, love and friendship.”
