Statement from The KSIMC of London on last week’s attacks in London

Following the attacks in London last Saturday, Mustafa Mohammed (Jaffer), President of The KSIMC of London, issued the following statement:

I am shocked by the news of violence in London Bridge and Borough Market.  My thoughts and prayers are with all the victims and their families. 

My thoughts, too, are with those who have been injured, who we hope will make the quickest of recoveries.

I pay tribute to the heroism of the emergency services who took such swift action to intervene, putting their lives at risk for the sake of others. 

In these days of Ramadhan, we as Muslims learn and reinforce Islamic teachings of love for our neighbours and compassion for all.  It is indeed unfortunate that some misguided individuals enact such abhorrent acts purportedly in the name of Islam. Whilst they and others seek to divide our society, we are proud to be British Muslims who espouse these values of kindness and openheartedness which will undoubtedly endure and triumph. 

Perpetrators of violence will never emerge victorious and I condemn all such actions.  Britain and London must continue to celebrate diversity, protect those in harm’s way and respond to hate with unity and togetherness.”
