Eric Pickles writes to Muslim organisations following recent criminal attacks on mosques in Tipton and Walsall, as well as arson attacks on a mosque in Muswell Hill and an Islamic school in Chislehurst.

In the letter Eric Pickles says: “We won’t let extremists from any community divide us. These are attacks on all of us and in our most challenging moments we find greater unity with each other.”
