Councillor Steve Curran, Leader of Hounslow Council, has expressed his pride that the borough’s residents of different cultures and faiths exist peacefully alongside each other in a community that is safe, and great place to live, work, go to school and to visit.

Speaking in the wake of re-tweeting of videos from a British far-right account that contained anti-Muslim content by US President, Donald Trump, Councillor Curran said; “The Council, local police, local organisations and borough communities in Hounslow all work together to prevent hate related crime. 

“I fully agree with the Mayor of London’s statement, that the re-tweets made by President Trump could do much harm and undermine “the value of tolerance and diversity” of our communities here in the UK.”

“In Hounslow our message to those who carry out despicable crimes of hate is simple. We won’t stand for it, and we will take action to protect all sections of our community, and enforce the necessary action against you.
