A lively question and answer session taking in British policing and the impact of the 9/11 attacks on the Muslim communities was held at an Ilford community centre.
Students from Ohio University visited the Ilford Community Centre, Eton Road to learn about the life of Muslims in the UK.
The 25 students and their two professors were on a week long visit to the UK and listened to presentations by police followed by the chairman of the centre Bashir Chaudhry.
He said: “It was very successful. They were all very happy to be here and asked a lot of questions. The representative from the police spoke about how they work with the community which was very thorough.”
Topics included the gun control laws in the US as well as experiences of the Muslim community in the UK.
