When I first read news presenter Cathy Newman’s tweets regarding the The South London Islamic Centre, I knew the witch was lying.
For those who missed this story here is a brief rundown of what happened.
Last week, Newman claimed that she had been turned away from The South London Islamic Centre despite being dressed appropriately. This poor excuse for a journalist sparked a social media firestorm after tweeting she had been “ushered onto the street” during ‘Visit My Mosque Day’, implying that unfriendly attitudes towards women were behind her expulsion. This resulted in the mosque receiving threatening voice messages and online abuse, which have been reported to police.
Watch the sequence of events below.
After surveillance camera footage was released (which tells a different story), Newman backtracked and issued the following statement:
“As the primary purpose of Visit My Mosque day was to increase understanding of Islam, I was horrified to hear the mosque I visited in error has had death threats. I’m sorry for any misunderstanding there has been. I would be happy to pay a private visit to South London Islamic Centre once again.”
The South London Islamic Centre chair of trustees Mohammed, Aslam Ijaz said:
“On the video, when the man is trying to direct her he thought she was asking for church. I can’t confirm if it was for church or for the Hyderi Centre. But we think he thought she mistakenly said church or the man took what she said wrongly. He is pointing his arm towards the church beside here.
If she comes with an appointment we’d love her” to visit the centre: “I would like to extend this invitation to her if she would like to contact me.”
Wake up and open your eyes Mohammed, Aslam Ijaz, lose the apologetic tone (you have done nothing wrong) and rescind your invitation . These mainstream media hacks are not your friends.
Cathy’s sole purpose was to stir up anti-Muslim hate by spreading lies. For that Channel 4 should either suspend or fire her backside.
This is a good example of the type of game the media likes to play when they want to stir up fear, hatred and unrest.
