Communities Minister commends inter-faith harmony in Cazenove


Stephen Williams MP, Lib Dem Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, visited Hackney on Wednesday for a meeting with councillors and representatives of the Muslim and Jewish communities.

The meeting included representatives of the Tawhid boys' school, Madina mosque, Hackney Independent Advisory Group and Rabbi Abraham Pinter, principal of the Yesodey Hatorah Senior Girls' School in Stamford Hill.

The minister later tweeted that he was "inspired" by the work being done in the area.
