Statement on the London Terror Attack
The Irish Muslim Peace & Integration Council strongly condemns the terrorist attack in London, United Kingdom near the British Parliament. The attack killed 5 innocent people and wounded more than 40.
Our sympathies and prayers are with the people of London and all those affected.
Such attacks and violence against innocent people can never be justified under any circumstances.
Shaykh Dr. Umar Al-Qadri, Chair of IMPIC, also said that the perpetrators of terrorism aim to sow seeds of discord and divisiveness . We cannot allow hatred to divide us. At this time we will see those on the extremes using this as an opportunity to divide society further, to fuel hate, fear and prejudice. Our strength is in standing united, to share our grief, to console each other, to move beyond these emotions and build a society which is just, peaceful and fair.
We must clearly send a message to those who want to inject violence, fear and hate into our lives, that you will not win. We will not allow you to be successful.
