Jeremy Corbyn responds to Islamophobic hate mail and packages

Jeremy Corbyn MP, Leader of the Labour Party, responding to the Islamophobic hate mail and packages sent to members of the Muslim community and members of Parliament, said:

“These disgusting hate-filled letters sent to Muslim fellow citizens and colleagues in Parliament are utterly contemptible.

“Labour is committed to tackling Islamophobia and anti-Muslim hate crime, as well as all other forms of bigotry, racism and xenophobia.

“Those that seek to divide us will find that our country is united in mutual respect, proud of our diversity and ready to protect our shared future.

“Today we stand together with those facing this vile Islamophobia, to show them support, care and solidarity”.
