Statement of muslim leaders following London Bridge terror attack

Assalam alykoum brothers and sisters,

 

We, the leaders of Peckham High Street Islamic and Cultural Centre and the leaders of Southwark Mosque, stand together as a united community in solidarity with fellow Londoners. We are shocked and saddened by the recent appalling attacks at borough market and London Bridge. Our deepest sympathies and prayers go out to all the victims, their families and their loved ones.

 

Such barbaric attacks have no place in Islam and we must not let this cause division and hatred among our communities. We stand united, shoulder by shoulder and condemn the attacks in London, Manchester and Westminster in the strongest way possible.

 

Here in Southwark, we the faith leaders pledge to build a stronger bond between our organisations and work closely with authorities to tackle all forms of extremism.

 

This hatred will not defeat our shared values, our way of life and the civiliasation of this country.

 

We Pay tribute to the emergency services and fellow Londoners who have worked hard after the horrific incident on Saturday.

 

The Faith Leaders of Southwark Council
