British Police Investigate Hate Letters Promoting 'Punish a Muslim Day'

It goes on to offer rewards for attackers, from 10 points for verbally abusing a Muslim and 50 points for throwing acid in the face of a Muslim, to 1,000 points for bombing a mosque and 2,500 points to "nuke Mecca". They have caused you pain and heartache.

The Labour MP Mohammad Yasin was targeted in a hate mail campaign after a suspicious package, which the Huff Post believed to non-toxic liquid, was opened by staff, who were later taken to hospital as a precaution, with some fearing it may be connected to the "Punish a Muslim Day" campaign but has not been verified.

"It is equally important that those who have received the letters contact the police as all evidence is vital in helping them find, and hold accountable, whoever is responsible for such hateful rhetoric".

Assistant Chief Constable Angela Williams of West Yorkshire Police, said: "We are aware of a number of reports of potentially malicious communications having been sent to individuals in West Yorkshire and across the UK.

Officers are now investigating the full circumstances".

Meanwhile Tell MAMA, which monitors anti-Muslim activity in the United Kingdom, said it had been made aware of letters arriving in London, Yorkshire and the Midlands. The letters are now under investigation by the police.

"We Quakers wish to offer a hand of friendship and solidarity to all Muslim communities and invite people of all faiths and none to stand with them against racism and hatred".

Victoria Atkins MP, a Home Office minister, said the letters are part of an ongoing police investigation but the Government condemned the contents of the letter as "clearly abhorrent with no place in decent society".

He said: "It was not addressed to anyone, just the address and postcode as if it was sent out randomly".

Counter Terrorism Policing North East is leading the investigation into the messages.

"I think it has been sent out by a group with the intent of alarming people and to stir up racial hatred", he told The Telegraph.

One letter was sent to the business address of Liberal Democrat councillor Riaz Ahmed in Bradford.

"I am alarmed by its content, especially where it mentions acid because of all the recent reports in the media of acid attacks".

There is also an image of a dagger with the letters MS, suggesting it is linked to so-called Muslim Slayer who targeted mosques in London and the United States a year ago with similar threats. Collaborating with the Metropolitan Police, the organization based in London urged the ones who received these letters to report it or ring a non-emergency number, 101.

West Yorkshire Police said the investigation into the instances was being coordinated by the UK's North East Counter Terrorism Unit (NECTU) and enquiries were going on.
