Security updates

Hounslow Jamia Masjid take the security of each and every individual who enters our premises extremely seriously. The events that took place in New Zealand recently have shocked the world and naturally people are concerned over their own safety. We are in daily contact with the local police and they are appraised our concerns. With their collaboration, the following enhancements will be enforced effective Monday 18th March for an indefinite period

 ·         The point of entry and exit will be restricted to the main glass doors accessible from the car park. No other doors will be open except on Fridays

·         There will be additional security presence daily from 9am-9pm on the premises

·         The police will make regular rounds throughout the day

·         There will be increased visible security presence on all gates on Friday

 

While these measures are there to create a form of peace of mind, we require your support in remaining extra vigilant and reporting any suspicious acts

 

What you can do to help:

 

·         Do not leave any bags or cases unattended at any time. If one does find an unattended package, please report to the security team. In the interest of safety, these items will be removed from the Mosque

·         Report any suspicious activity or vehicles in the car park to the on duty security team, a member of management or police

·         Help us help you – keep your children with you as best as you can co-operate with any reasonable request from the security team

 

We stand in solidarity with the people of New Zealand who have rejected this barbaric act. And we once again re-iterate that we are hand in hand with friends of all faith groups on the path to doing our utmost to promote and maintain peace in our community

 

Should there be any concerns from any member of our community, please do not hesitate to contact:
