Ó Muilleoir welcomes political unity against Newtownards hate crime
Sinn Féin MLA Máirtín Ó Muilleoir has welcomed cross-party unity against the perpetrators of a hate crime outside the Bangladeshi Islamic Centre.
The South Belfast MLA said:
“The people who posed as members of the Ku Klux Klan outside an Islamic Centre should know that the entire society is appalled by these actions and will stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the victims of this intimidation.
“I have been in contact with the Bangladeshi Welfare Association to offer my solidarity and support.
“The Bangladeshi community makes an enormous contribution to our society and any threat to the members of the Newtownards mosque is a threat to everything we hold dear.
“I call on the PSNI to do all they can to bring those responsible for this hate crime to book.”
