A Muslim-led women’s league coordinated with police to deliver a workshop on internet safety in Forest Gate.
Minhaj-ul-Qur’an’s Women League London held the session at the Romford Road mosque, where mums learnt how to protect browsing children on September 7.
Senior executive Jabeen Naveed led the meeting, providing in-depth information on social network sites such as Twitter and Facebook.
“The aim was to highlight safety precautions to take while their children use the net,” she said. “Workshops such as these empower parents with the knowledge they need to support their children on using these technologies safely and responsibly.”
Minhaj-ul-Qur’an was motivated to run the workshops out of concern for people exploiting internet freedom to behave in a way they wouldn’t consider normal in public.
