The attack today transpired after a terrorist driving his vehicle into members of the public. He subsequently stabbed a policeman on guard duty, before being shot dead by armed police. Four deaths have resulted.

Sikh have borne the brunt of knee-jerk reprisals in the past as hate crimes usually and as such Gurdwara Sahibs often been a target, so local Sikh communities are on alert to save from any such unfounded responses.

The Sikh Council UK, commented, “Sikh Council UK urges all Gurdwaras and other community organisations to review security arrangements including checking CCTV provision is in working order following the terrorist attack in London.

“Unfortunately as seen in past, Sikhs and Gurdwaras have been targeted in ignorance and been subject to hate crimes due to our distinct identity.

“Gurdwara managements and congregations are requested to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity to the police and Sikh Council UK.”

The Met Police have cordoned off many areas of central London and asked members of the public to volunteer any images or footage that they may have captured on personal devices.

“I would like to ask the public to remain vigilant and let us know if they see anything suspicious that causes them concern and dial 999 immediately”, said Commander BJ Harrington, of New Scotland Yard.
