LONDON: Kent police are investigating the possibility that three letters sent to mosques are linked. At 12.23pm officers received a report that a suspicious letter containing white powder had been sent to a mosque in Giles Lane, Canterbury. on 2 May. The area was cordoned off and no injuries were reported.
The powder was tested and it transpired to be a harmless substance .
A similar report was received at 3.10pm at a mosque in Mote Road, Maid stone and that too has been found to contain a harmless substance.
Officers are also investigating the delivery of an offensive letter to a mosque in Gravesend. No white powder was contained in the letter. Enquiries are on-going. The letter states: “As you can see I have acquired a weapon and I am more than prepared to use it on you and members of your Masjid (well I WILL use it on you, what am I saying!). “So my plans for the 3rd ofApril (Dylann Storm Roof’s birthday) did not go quite as expected, that’s no problem, there’s still time.
“I freak in’ hate the pigs (police) and liberal do-gooder hippies just as much as I hate you cockroaches. I blame them whole heartedly for the mess my country has become. So, as of now, the police and anyone who supports you Muslims are now a valid target for bloodshed. “I do not follow YOUR law, I follow MY law, and I answer to no-one. “To beat the pigs at their own game, simply do not speak to them or do as they tell you. If you do not give them your details when they try to stop you, you win and they lose, simples! “I have had a life of torment, harassment, bullying, and abuse. I hate you all. Humanity is a joke, humanity never helped me when someone trapped me in a room at school and they tried to touch me, when I tried to kill myself as a teenager who cared? “Who came along when people physically and emotionally attacked me, no-one. We who are rejected by society.
WAR IS COMING”. The letter also displays pictures of: Dylann Storm Roof, who committed the Charleston Church shooting terror attack, resulting in the death of nine individuals; Elliot Rodger, who committed the Isla Vista killings, resulting in the death of six individuals; and what appears to be Alexandre Bissonnette, who killed six people at Quebec City Mosque in 2017.
