FOSIS says Muslim students should stay at home tonight

The statement comes after two Muslims allegedly beheaded a British soldier in south London earlier today. There are also reports that the far-right English Defence League (EDL) is now rioting in Woolwich amid fears of an anti-Muslim backlash around the country.

“We encourage all Muslim students to be cautious and report any anti-Muslim hatred to the police immediately,” a FOSIS statement said.
