Eye Witness pronounces London mosque stabbing as “30 seconds of mayhem”

An eye witness of recent incident of stabbing at a mosque in central London pronounced that the scene as “30 seconds of mayhem”, UK publication The Guardian reported on Friday.

According to the details, the British police arrested a man on Thursday over suspicion of attempted murder for the incident of recent stabbing at mosque.

“A man in his 70s was found injured. His condition has been assessed as non life-threatening,” said police official in its statement.

Meanwhile, photographs shared on social media from inside the mosque in Regent’s Park had showed a white man being pinned to the ground and handcuffed by two police officers.

“The incident is not being treated as terror related at this time,” the police had said on Thursday. However, despite his injuries muezzin Rafat made his way to London Central Mosque a day later for Friday prayers, Reuters reported.

Amid the incident, London Mayor Sadiq Khan  tweeted: “Places of worship should be sanctuaries — a safe haven. No one should be scared to attend mosques, churches, synagogues or temples.

London Mayor added that he will offer prayers at the London Central Mosque in order to show solidarity with Muslims residing in London.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson while responding to the incident tweeted: “I’m deeply saddened to hear of the attack at the London Central Mosque. It’s so awful that this should happen, especially in a place of worship. My thoughts are with the victim and all those affected.”
