Police are investigating letters which are being circulated instructing people to play a "punish a Muslim" game - including throwing ACID at them.

The letters also encourage people to "torture" and "butcher" Muslims in a day of Islamophobic violence on 3 April.

Labour MP Yasmin Qureshi tweeted: "I'm shocked to learn that extremist cowards are distributing anonymous letters encouraging people to attack Muslims".

In the letters, there is a points-based scoring system, rising from 25 "points" for pulling the headscarf off a Muslim woman to 2,500 for "nuke Mecca". They have made your loved ones suffer. "What are going to do about it?"

Councillor Ahmed said: "It goes on to ask if you are a sheep and 'are allowing the white majority nations of Europe and North America to become overrun by those who would like nothing more than to do us harm and turn our democracies into Sharia led police states".

It did not stop there as it took an aggressive turn right after this one-paragraph introduction.

Ominous letters are being sent anonymously around the United Kingdom urging people to participate in a macabre game called "Punish a Muslim", which awards points for doing things like burning down a mosque or throwing acid on a Muslim person.

"What we have in common is the best defence against extremists who seek to divide us".

Reports on social media show letters have been distributed in various towns and cities across the country, including Bristol, Sheffield and London. Now into double figures.

Police in Bradford have acknowledged they are investigating reports of the letters.

"We are working closely with the relevant police forces on this matter which is being treated with the utmost seriousness", it added.

The Queen's court contact details were included at end of the letter.

"We have been notified of people from across the country randomly receiving these letters".

Detective Chief Superintendent Martin Snowden, head of the counterterrorism unit, called on anyone with information about the letter campaign to contact their local police.

The shocking letters, titled "Punish a Muslim Day", were sent out on March 8th and were highlighted by the discredited group Tell Mama, which lost government funding after inflating "hate crime" numbers to further their agenda.

Assistant Chief Constable Tim Forber said: "These communications are extremely distressing and we appreciate that members of our communities will be very concerned".

He said: "We take religious hatred extremely seriously and my officers will be carrying out a full and thorough investigation in response to these reports".

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said it had received two reports of letters being sent to people, one in east London and the other in the SW4 area.
