(Reuters) - London police said on Friday that they had charged a 29-year-old man in the stabbing of a prayer leader at a mosque in Park Road.

 

Daniel Horton, charged with section 18 GBH and possession of a bladed article, is due to appear in custody at Westminster Magistrates' Court on Feb. 22, Police said.

 

Raafat Maglad, the prayer leader who was stabbed around the top of his shoulder by the attacker, said in a BBC interview that he did not hate his attacker and felt sorry for him.

 

"I just felt blood flowing from my neck and that's it, they rushed me to the hospital. Everything happened all of a sudden," Maglad told BBC.

 

According to a witness, around 100 worshippers were in the mosque hall at the time of the attack on Thursday and some 20 people jumped on the assailant. "I heard screaming," said the witness, who declined to give his full name, "and then we saw the blood."

 

"The attacker was apprehended by the worshippers until the police arrived and arrested him," the London Central Mosque Trust said in a statement.

 

London's Metropolitan Police said detectives did not believe the incident was terrorism-related.

 

Prime Minister Boris Johnson condemned the incident and said he was deeply saddened to hear of the attack.

 

"It's so awful that this should happen, especially in a place of worship. My thoughts are with the victim and all those affected," Johnson said on Twitter on Thursday.

These right wingers are getting out of control.

Well, that post aged very badly. Not sure many of these "right wingers" you often allude to are regulars at the local mosque?

 

"She told the court the victim and defendant were known to each other because Horton had been attending the mosque for a number of years."

Has it been reported that  the attacker was a Right wing or did you just make that up ?

It's a challenge to check if a mosque is an islamist propaganda tool in the West, when the language used is'nt the one of the host country, let alone the ideology and the cult spread within its prémices.

Right Islamic ex-jailbird, wrong mosque. 

So which mosque is it that you claim Choudray

 Having established that, you should immediately inform the police because if he really is doing as you claim, he is breaking the terms of his early release! Jailed preacher Anjem Choudary faces strict controls after release

Quote

He will need prior approval from his probation officer, which he is not expected to be given, to take part directly or indirectly in demonstrations, public meetings, social media chat groups, public statements to the media or anything that disseminates his views.

Unless, of course, you can provide credible evidence that for some very strange reason such prior approval was granted!

But thanks for the reminder of the Finsbury Park mosque's links to a number of convicted Islamic radicals, not least former Imam Abu Hamza Al-Mazri, released after seven years jail in the UK and now serving a life sentence in a US prison for terror offences.

Unlike those of certain political beliefs, I am not afraid to post the truth. Even if so doing may provide ammunition for you to try and convince yourself that the events of 15 years ago when the local Muslim community took back control of their mosque never happened.

Those, of course, were the bad old days Today, Finsbury, London Central and the rest of the UK's mosques are models of tolerance and harmony spreading sweetness, light and brotherly love of the infidel.

Many are, maybe you should try visiting some!

Leopard. Spots.

A throw away remark which could equally apply to Christianity; which over the last two millennia has been responsible for far more torture and death than any other. Torture and death which continues to this day; particularly in Central Africa. But as their victims are African too, the Western media isn't interested.

The Koran IS Islamist propaganda. It preaches hatred and death. Try reading it.

You should try reading the New Testament, a lot of hatred and death there. As for the Old Testament; full of it.

 

But I suspect that you have never read any of them, and have no intention of ever so doing. Why bother, when the selected, out of context quotes from the Koran provided by Gates of Vienna and similar provide all the 'proof' you need to fuel your prejudice.

Ever heard of the bible?

 

Btw, books dont preach. Its the person doing the preaching thats to blame.

 

You dont read the koran as such. You are taught it.

If you want to know which mosque I referenced, rather than the one you erroneously mentioned, you have the means to do so.

 

The rest of your diatribe is irrelevant twaddle unworthy of a response.
