Behind a glass door inside Al Madina Mosque, Ashfaq Siddique stands at ramrod attention, his eyes darting. He is the mosque’s guiding spirit. He is also a former policeman with Scotland Yard. He is scanning live feeds from 36 closed-circuit cameras that monitor everything from the prayer hall to the ablutions room. He is searching for trouble.
"In Brexit-Era London, a Mosque Sits Between Two Types of Hate" is from the November 10, 2017 World section of The New York Times. It was written by David D. Kirkpatrick and narrated by Mike DelGaudio.
