HSBC bank has written to Finsbury Park Mosque and other Muslim organisations in the UK to tell them that their accounts will be closed.
The reason given in some cases was that to continue providing services would be outside the bank’s “risk appetite”.
The wife and teenage children of a man who runs a London based Islamic think tank have also been contacted.
HSBC said decisions to close accounts were “absolutely not based on race or religion”.
No, but they are likely based on their being Terrorist fronts.
