The East London Mosque refutes the comments in the Daily Telegraph (27 December 2008). The Mosque hires out its facilities to all users regardless of faith, creed or colour.

The “End of Time” event to be held on Thursday 1st January 2009 is being organised by Noor Pro Media. The subjects to be discussed during the event are the Islamic concepts on Judgement Day and the Afterlife. These concepts are also prevalent in other faiths, including the Christian and Jewish faiths.

None of the speakers that are involved with the event are banned from entering the UK or are convicted of any hate crimes.

Additionally, the East London Mosque believes that keeping within the British ideals of free speech and tolerance, that different parties with differing views should be given a platform to speak on to raise the level of public debate about issues that directly affect society.
