The attack on worshippers outside the mosque in Seven Sisters Road in the early hours of Monday morning led to an increase in referrals to the Prevent scheme of neo-Nazi sympathisers heard praising the actions of the alleged attacker.
One man died and nine others were taken to hospital after the attack.
Osborne, 47, is scheduled to appear in Westminster Magistrates' Court on Friday afternoon.
He will appear at London's Old Bailey criminal court for a preliminary hearing on Tuesday. He had moved from Bangladesh at the age of 10. He claimed that the driver said that "I did my bit" after the attack and adding that by making the statement, the attacker made it clear that he was not mentally ill. He was married with four daughters and two sons, and had two grandchildren.
"It appears that a white man in a van intentionally ploughed into a group of worshippers who were already tending to someone who had been taken ill", the council said in a statement.
A terror suspect accused of carrying out a premeditated attack on Muslims as they left a mosque has been remanded in custody on murder and attempted murder charges.
The incident was the fourth attack in Britain since March described by police as terrorist, and the third to involve a vehicle driven at pedestrians.
According to police chiefs, there had been a short-term spike in London before the Finsbury Park mosque attack even though accurate data is not yet available. "Our hearts go out to the people who have been injured".
