David Cameron has condemned an “appalling” campaign against plans to build a mosque in his rural Oxfordshire constituency.
The Prime Minister, who is the Conservative MP for Witney, spoke out in response to a “scaremongering” leaflet which said he should be voted out for backing the scheme.
The “mosque alert” warning – bearing the name of the Nationalist Alliance – urged locals not to re-elect Mr Cameron at the next general election.
It claimed that not only was he a supporter of the proposed new place of worship for Muslims, but he had also “set up a special task force to ensure your children kneel before Allah”.
One leaflet was received by local councillor Tahirul Hasan, whose previous plan to build a mosque in the market town was thwarted by threats to burn down the premises he had planning permission to use, the Cotswold Journal reported.
