I am relieved that no one was hurt in the shooting incident outside a mosque in Seven Kings in my constituency last night. Everyone should be able to pray and worship without fear. I encourage anyone with any information to contact the Police on 101

Eyewitnesses have said the gunman was stopped from entering and returning back to the mosque by the worshippers before he fired a shot.
People were heard screaming “He has got a gun” “He has got a gun”
The worshippers are connecting the Seven Kings Mosque Shooting with the Christchurch Mosque shooting and labeling it a terror attack.
The police is however denying it was any sort of terror attack.
Mufti Suhail, imam of the Seven Kings Mosque has issued an statement:
“There have been various stories circulating in relation to a firearms incident that took outside Seven Kings Mosque tonight during the Taraweeh prayers, We would like to provide brief update on the incident based on the information we have so far”
“There was a firearm incident outside Seven Kings Mosque tonight during the Ramadam night prayers.
“The suspect ran from the scene when stopped by brothers standing guard at the mosque. A shot was fired which fortunately did not hit anyone.
“There is a full police presence outside the mosque and we would like to reassure the community the police have sealed the area and there were no injuries.”
We are yet to establish the motive or all the facts surrounding the incident. The police are investigating the matter. A police request to all to kindly avoid speculating and circulating unconfirmed information.
Social media is full of speculation no one knows about the actual facts.
