I left the Nasir Mosque a better and more enlightened person and recommend taking advantage of any future opportunities to visit.

Having read (Mail, June 13) how a visit for schoolchildren to Hartlepool’s Nasir Mosque in Brougham Terrace was cancelled, due to recent terrorist events in London and Manchester, I wish to make comment about my own visit there on April 28.

I went along in trepidation and with questions which I needed to ask.

The welcome into the mosque was so inviting, I did ask my challenging questions and I did get answers.

The real meaning of the words “Jihad Akbar” was explained to me (Jihad Akbar – to purify oneself and to fight against the devil inside you).

I could clearly see the kindness of the people around me and that the so-called jihadi terrorists are demented people in the minority, who have clearly lost the plot.

I left the Nasir Mosque a better and more enlightened person and recommend taking advantage of any future opportunities to visit.

Palmer Street,
