What’s not to respect about Imam Mohammed Mahmoud at the Finsbury Park mosque telling people to back off from throttling the terrorist who drove a van into worshippers?

The way media reports it, the Imam was a stellar figure but the worshippers who were throttling him were a mob. This was a high-adrenalin moment. If a few punches were thrown to keep him from escaping after killing someone & injuring several others, that does not constitute a mob in the act of murder, even if there was some over-reaction. Wouldn’t we all like to take a swing at him?
