A MOSQUE that allowed a political sign to be painted on its dome, below, has backed down, above, after Loving Dalston alerted the Charity Commission.
The dome of the mosque was emblazoned with a plug for a Kentish landlord, Nigel Askew”, standing in South Thanet for the Reality Party, which was started by Mark “Bez” Berry, a northern pop star-dancer.
The commission added: “We have been assured that immediate steps are being taken to remove the advert.
“We have reminded the trustees of their duties and are in continued correspondence in order to assess whether any further action is necessary.”
This site has told the commission of the sign’s removal. The mosque, which has an extraordinary story behind it, has not replied to Loving Dalston requests to comment.
