MUHAMMAD MOSQUE NO.1
RAIDED BY ARMED POLICE OFFICERS
At 11:15 am on Thursday 22 July 2010 armed police officers forced their way into the UK Headquarters of The Nation of Islam in Brixton London. The Police when questioned on why they entered a place of worship, put forward the absurd reason that they received good intelligence that there was a cannabis factory on the premises. Police claimed that they were unaware that it was a Mosque building.
This incident has come at a time when the Honourable Minister Louis Farrakhan has exposed those who are responsible for the Transatlantic Slave Trade and is calling for reparations from corporations that profited from the slave labour of Black people.
This coming Friday 23 July, Minister Hilary Muhammad, the UK Representative of the Honourable Minister Louis Farrakhan and The Nation of Islam, will convene a press conference to publicly update the community on what happened.
The press conference will be held outside of Brixton Police Station at 6:45 pm to start promptly at 7 pm.
