Police raids barbaric and horrific

Statement of Sis. Humeya Kalam on behalf of her family 46 Lansdown Road, E7


Assalaamıalaikum Warahmatullah,


Brothers & Sisters of our community, On the morning of Friday 2nd June 2006 myself and my family were awakened by what can only be described as barbaric and horrific actions taken against an innocent family. I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone in the community for their tremendous support and inshaıallah that will continue.

I would also like to advise the people of our community that it is my wish as well as my familyıs, for people not to attend the protest that will take place after Friday prayers. This will only give provide another opportunity for our community to be portrayed in a negative light. Consequently, this will allow the Police to inflict the same trauma that we have been through on another family. More brothers and sisters as a result, could be arrested, which will have an adverse effect in proving both of my brothersı

Instead, we would ask you to support a peaceful community demonstration on Sunday 18th June 2006 at 12.00 noon in Plashet Park. This protest will allow our friends, our neighbours and our community the opportunity to show their support for my family and to unite all the people of Newham, from every faith and community, against the effect of such raids.
