Finsbury Park Mosque
Finsbury Park Mosque focalises women’s services at the heart of their mosque.
Finsbury Park Mosque as part of the Islamophobia awareness month this November and in partnership with Mend and Islington Police, organised a “Responding to fear” event after Friday prayer where around 70 women attended. There was also a police Q & A session on how they should act and what steps they should take if they become subject to Islamophobic attack, especially beacuse 75% of Islamophobic hate crimes reports are from Women.
