[Excerpts]

CHILDREN as young as nine have been branded terrorists following recent attacks, according to research by Childline.
...
Muslim children said that they endured constant name-calling, were accused of being associated with so-called Islamic State, and threatened with violence.
...
Meanwhile faith communities in Blackburn have been praying for the victims during Ramadan.

Imran Ahmed, president of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Blackburn, said: "In Britain, we live in a remarkable country, amongst incredibly diverse and compassionate people. It is clear that we are passing through volatile times and therefore we need to stay united as a country and not let extremists destroy the very fabric of society.”
