Imam stops angry Muslims assailing London van suspect

Recommended Posts

 ESET    1,226

The London mayor praised the imam's actions.

An imam intervened to stop local residents from beating a man accused of driving into people on Monday outside a London mosque after Ramadan prayers, and one official said "his bravery and courage" potentially saved the man's life.

The suspect was yanked from the cab of his van by a furious crowd as he sought to reverse and escape after injuring 10 people in what police said was a deliberate attack on Muslims that was being treated as terrorism.

The man was being held down, beaten and kicked when Muslim cleric Mohammed Mahmoud stepped in to plead with people just to restrain him until police arrived.

"We found that a group of people quickly started to collect around him, around the assailant and some tried to hit him either with kicks or punches. By God's grace we managed to surround him and to protect him from any harm," Mahmoud said.

"We managed to extinguish any flames of anger or mob rule that might have taken charge," he told reporters, adding he was acting with "a group of mature brothers".

The suspect had been shouting earlier "I've done my bit", aid Toufik Kacimi, the chief executive of the nearby Muslim Welfare House community center, who praised the imam's courage.

"(The imam's) bravery and courage helped calm the immediate situation after the incident and prevented further injuries and potential loss of life," he said.

Not all imams are bad imams....look

Still saying there are peaceful Muslims in the world

What's the saying

Not all Muslims are terrorists but all terrorists are Muslim

The BBC was so quick to release the name of the white can driver but always hold off a few days on release of the Muslim names

Yeaaahhhhhh

Anyways.........

Did the brits pull the driver from London bridge and beat and stomp?

Doubt it

Don't want to be called racist

Don't be fooled by the whole good Muslim, bad Muslim, we can't tell the good from the bad crap

It's a religion that thrives on domination of women and non believers 

This is nothing more than good Muslim propoganda
