Muslim Umbrella organisations condemn Woolwich terror attack

We strongly condemn the barbaric action that took place today in Woolwich, London.

The killing of an innocent man is in no way permitted under any pretext, and there is no legitimate cause for such savage and mindless actions. The Holy Qur’an (5:32) states that whoever kills one person, it is as though he has killed all of mankind.

We await the investigation of the Metropolitan police to gather all the evidence to find the motives behind this heines crime. We strongly urge the Metropolitian Police to take steps to ensure that such crimes which will have an impact on our country and community cohesion are resoliutely dealt with.

Such acts committed by individuals or groups can never divide OUR nation.

These fanatics who cause discord will never be allowed to win. Our communities are determined to fight off all forms of criminality and extreme behavior.

Our thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathies are with the family and friends of the murdered solider.
