PRESS RELEASE: Forest Gate Arrests Indictment of Police and Intelligence Strategy

Commenting on the release without charge of the two brothers arrested last Friday in an anti-terrorist raid in Forest Gate, London, IHRC Chair Massoud Shadjareh said:

\"This is another indictment of police and intelligence service anti-terrorist policy. This policy is criminalising and victimising a community that is running out of patience. The only criterion for suspicion, it appears, is the suspicion that you might be or are a Muslim.\"
