Complainant Name:
Brixton Mosque and Islamic Cultural Centre

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Evening Standard


AbdulHaq Addae, Media Liaison at Brixton Mosque and Islamic Cultural Centre, complained that an article about Sheikh Abdullah El-Faisal was inaccurate when it referred to him as the “Brixton Mosque preacher”.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following clarification:

‘Our article of 12 April “Jailed preacher of hate in court battle to stay in Britain” referred to Sheikh Abdullah El-Faisal as the “Brixton Mosque preacher”. El-Faisal only preached at Brixton Mosque in the early 1990s and not after the current administration was elected in 1994’.

Report: 75
