Package containing liquid is found in Labour MP Mohammad Yasin's office

Package containing liquid is found in Labour MP Mohammad Yasin's office

They were sent to the offices of Muslim MPs in the Labour Party.

The MP for Ealing Central and Acton joins Rushanara Ali (Bethnal Green and Bow), Mohammad Yasin (Bedford) and Afzal Khan (Manchester Gorton) among those known to have been targeted. The letter posted to some addresses and on social media urges terrorist and violent acts against Muslims in the United Kingdom.

Muslim MPs have been sent threatening letters which urge people to carry out acid attacks against Muslims, bomb mosques and pull off hijabs. The substance was later found to be harmless. "It is terrible though, it's really very frightening", she told the Guardian.

"It is to put the frighteners on us but we won't be cowed", Ms Huq said.

"Tell MAMA documented previous year how the so-called "Muslim Slayer" targeted mosques in parts of London and the United States in 2017 with similar threats, and in some cases, with non-toxic white powder".

"Two people have been hospitalized as a precaution after a Labor MP received a suspicious parcel which sources say contained an unknown liquid", tweeted the Westminster police adding that "the suspect package was sent to Bedford MP Mohammad Yasin".

"Specialist officers attended and the package was assessed".

Emergency services were called to the Norman Shaw Building, which hosts some parliamentary offices, "at 12.58 p.m.to reports of a suspicious package at Norman Shaw Buildings, Victoria Embankment, Westminster", a police statement said.

A Parliament spokesman told BI in a statement that police were investigating potential links between the packages.

British police investigated the receipt of a racist letter in a suspicious package to a Muslim lawmaker on Tuesday, one day after two other Muslim lawmakers said they received similar packages.

Counter Terrorism Policing North East said it had received reports of "potentially malicious communications sent to individuals across the UK".

The letters, which are now being investigated by police, encourage people to get points for committing increasingly serious offences against Muslims.

"The incident, which was contained to one room, is in the process of being stood down".
