Four suspicious packages were reported at the British Parliament in Westminster in Monday and Tuesday.

A third letter has been also sent to Muslim MP Rushanara Ali.

"Sheep follow orders and are easily led, they are allowing the white majority nations of Europe and North America to become overrun by those who like nothing more than to do us harm and turn our democracies into Sharia-led police states".

Khan's package was unopened by his staff but the package to Huq was opened and a member of staff was taken to hospital as a precaution after opening the letter, which the MP said contained a "sticky substance" that the police had described as "low-level noxious".

Riaz Ahmed, a Liberal Democrat councillor in Bradford, West Yorkshire County, told the media that he received one of the letters at his business address. The MPs in question have said the packages came with aggressive letters attacking their religion.

Sources said a mysterious liquid was discovered in Mohammad Yasin's office this lunchtime - but it was later found not to be hazardous.

Reacting to the news, anti-Islamophobia group director Iman Atta OBE told the Sun: "Those behind the malicious letters are trying to create fear within the Muslim communities and the threatening letter titled "Punish a Muslim Day" may be part of a wider campaign of hate against Muslims".

"The letter calling for attacks on Muslim is just the latest example of rising Islamaphobia and deplorable hate crimes in this country", said Pakistani-origin Labour MP Yasmin Qureshi, who raised an urgent question in the House of Commons yesterday calling on the United Kingdom government to do more to tackle such "incitement to violence and help prevent the growth of such extreme views".

Huq told the Guardian that she had been assured that the substance was not harmful.

'Specialist officers attended and the package was assessed.

"The London Ambulance Service are on scene".

A parliamentary spokesman confirmed four packages had been sent to the building in recent days and said police were investigating the latest package.

Two unidentified people were taken to hospital as a precaution following Monday's suspicious package report.

"Everyone is fine, but it was clearly a worrying incident", a member of Mr Yasin's staff said.
