Despite the abhorrent flyers aimed at intimidating Muslims and dividing our communities, we at New Horizons in British Islam want to channel the true spirit of Britain by urging everyone to simply Keep Calm and Carry On.
It is saddening to hear of people staying indoors for fear of an attack. We understand their concerns and reiterate calls by others to stay vigilant and be safe.
However we are also heartened by the many, many messages of solidarity from all sections of our vast and diverse nation. It is comforting to know that there has been unanimous support for Muslims and outright condemnation and rejection of these divisive letters.
Let us not allow these hate mongers to have their way. Let’s reject hate, and choose love. Let’s Keep Calm and Carry On.
