The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community UK is deeply shocked and horrified at the terrorist attack on Muslim worshippers of Finsbury Park Mosque on Sunday night, resulting in the death of one worshipper and others very seriously injured.
London (PRWEB UK) 20 June 2017
Rafiq Hayat, National President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community UK said:
"This was a calculated and heinous attack on peaceful Muslims going about their Ramadan prayers in the middle of the night. We commend the response of the emergency services who were at the scene in a matter of minutes.
The clear intention was to kill and injure as many as possible of those on walkways emerging from the mosque. This is extremely disturbing and Ahmadiyya Muslim community UK condemns this horrific act in the strongest possible terms.
This attack on Muslims is the same hate-filled ideology that led to the terrorists’ attacks in Manchester and London.
We are facing a time of great uncertainty and are facing an unprecedented challenge to our national security and, as such, we call on the government, security services and the entire public to remain extremely vigilant at all times. We must all work together to ensure that we defeat the extremist ideologies that have caused such destruction and grief in recent years.
In Britain, we live in a remarkable country, amongst incredibly diverse and compassionate people. It is clear that we are passing through volatile times and therefore we need to stay united as a country and not let extremists destroy the very fabric of society."
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community operates western Europe's biggest mosque, the Baitul Futuh Mosque in Morden, Surrey and also opened the first mosque in the capital, The London Mosque in Putney.
