The chairman of Finsbury Park mosque in north London says he is shocked and angered with HSBC after receiving notice that its account with the bank would be closed.
It is shocking, unbelievable. To send us a letter without any notice. We don't understand why they have taken this action and we are not going to be quiet. It is disgraceful.
As a community organisation we are doing a good job between the communities. We have worked hard since we took over from Abu Hamza.
We have changed the mosque from an atmosphere of hostility to a cohesive atmosphere [...]
We don't receive money from abroad, we don't send any money abroad. Our reputation and credibility is on the line now.
