Islamophobic leaflets which were distributed in the area earlier this week have been given to the police who are investigating who is responsible for this vile behaviour.
The police have asked me to remind residents how important it is to report all incidences of racism or islamophobia. You should call the police on 101. If you are in immediate danger call 999.
I have been contacted by a number of different organisations across the city offering their support to the Birmingham Muslim community following this outrageous attack on our faith. Birmingham is a diverse and wonderful city and their support is welcome.
